Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Statement from the Chief

On behalf of the faculty, residents, fellows, and staff of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of the Keck School of Medicine, I want to welcome you to our website. This website is the virtual convergence of our three integrated goals of world class patient care, surgical education, and research.

At USC, we are fortunate to have 10 full-time faculty surgeons and over 30 affiliated faculty providing expertise in every facet of plastic surgery. This includes breast reconstruction, nasal surgery, extremity reconstruction, hand surgery, pediatric plastic surgery including craniofacial and cleft lip and palate, burn injury and reconstruction, and cosmetic surgery. This, in combination with our location in the heart of the vibrant City of Los Angeles has allowed us to become a recognized center of excellence in plastic surgery.

So, whether you are a patient, medical student, or interested supporter, our website should allow you to virtually explore USC Plastic Surgery. We thank you for visiting.
