Reconstructive Surgery Overview
When you think of plastic surgery, you may think
of facelifts, tummy tucks or other cosmetic
procedures. Those procedures are important,
but Penn's plastic surgeons also help cancer
patients, trauma victims and many others to
regain normal appearance.
The University of Pennsylvania's Division
of Plastic Surgery is a recognized leader in
Reconstructive Surgery. No other hospital in
the region can match the skills found at Penn. Doctors
and staff provide a full range of expertise
covering every area of Reconstructive Surgery,
Reconstructive surgery patients also benefit
from the recognized experience of Penn’s
world-class doctors and staff. Plastic surgery
patients have access to the full spectrum of medical
care provided by leading physicians and the facilities
of one of the nation’s leading hospitals.
Patients who need reconstructive surgery may
call a Penn doctor because they were turned away
or told elsewhere that their situation was too
complicated. Penn’s surgeons can often give
hope where there was none. They are also happy
to give second opinions.
Many reconstructive surgery procedures are paid
for by medical insurance. When you call for an
appointment, our staff will begin to help you
determine what services may be covered.
