Reconstructive surgery is performed on abnormal structures of the body caused by congenital defects, developmental abnormalities, trauma, infection, tumors or disease. It is generally performed to improve functions, but may also be done to approximate a normal appearance. Reconstructive surgery is generally covered by most health insurance policies, although coverage for specific procedures and levels of coverage may vary greatly.
We offer a wide variety of services designed to help patients meet their reconstructive surgical needs. Below are of a few of the procedures we perform for adult and pediatric patients.
