The faculty performs surgical treatment for congenital anomalies, breast deformities, upper and lower extremity problems, complex wounds, maxillofacial injuries, thermal burns, facial restoration and cosmetic enhancement.

    At Kentucky Children's Hospital, pediatric plastic surgeons utilize the most advanced procedures and technology to provide comprehensive diagnostic and treatment services for congenital and developmental anomalies of the head, neck and hand. Our fellowship trained pediatric plastic surgeons have vast experience treating children with a wide variety of plastic surgical issues. We offer a full range of reconstructive and cosmetic surgeries on the skull, ear, nose, breast and other body parts.
