Restoring Form and Function
Request an Appointment
The mission of Penn’s head and neck reconstructive surgeons is to restore form and function for patients with pain, deformity or functional impairment as a result of cancer, trauma or congenital conditions.
At Penn, our surgeons’ extensive understanding of the form and function of the facial structures gives them a breadth and depth of experience unmatched by many others. Because of the innovation and resources available at Penn's Head and Neck Reconstructive Surgery program, patients from all over the country and with a wide variety of hard-to-treat cases benefit from our expertise.
Our compassionate team also understands how cancer, trauma or congenital conditions can have a profound impact on how patients eat, speak, socialize and express themselves. That expertise enables Penn physicians to develop personalized treatment plans for each patient, with the goal of achieving optimal restoration, quality of life and self-confidence.
To meet the unique needs of head and neck reconstruction, Penn has assembled a multidisciplinary team of specialists, including:
- Head and neck reconstructive surgeons
- Microvascular surgeons
- Facial plastic surgeons
- Oral and maxillofacial surgeons
- Maxillofacial prosthodontists
- Functional rehabilitation specialists
Our team is among the most experienced in the nation and works to treat some of the rarest and most complex conditions. Using their combined expertise and a continuum of care before, during and after surgery, Penn physicians are able to address every aspect of care for patients – functionally and aesthetically – so they can return to their lives.
