Department and Faculty
Skilled plastic surgeons at Mayo Clinic provide a wide range of reconstructive and cosmetic surgery services. Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is staffed by 18 plastic surgeons with specialized training and skills in one or more of the following surgical subspecialties:
- Aesthetic plastic surgery
- Reconstructive surgery
- Craniofacial surgery
- Reconstructive microsurgery
- Pediatric plastic surgery
- Laser surgery
- Hand surgery
Three plastic surgeons practice at Mayo Clinic in Florida, 11 in Rochester, Minn., and four in Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz. Plastic surgeons work closely with physicians from other specialties to offer patients comprehensive medical care to meet their reconstructive and cosmetic surgical needs. Surgeons in dermatology, otolaryngology (ENT) and oral/maxillofacial surgery also have training and expertise in reconstructive and cosmetic surgery.
In addition to caring for patients in their clinical practices, Mayo Clinic's faculty is committed to teaching and facilitating the growth of medical knowledge. Many faculty members have published and lectured extensively and are well regarded in their field. You will have direct access to these individuals. By working with them, you will become part of the "spirit of Mayo" where all team members work together to deliver consistently high-quality patient care.
Many prominent professors visit Mayo each year. They present their work during noon and/or morning lectures and participate in hospital rounds. The residents are encouraged to take full advantage of these opportunities.
