St. Luke’s Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery specializes in micro-surgical plastic surgery, one of the most challenging areas of the field. Our fellowship-trained microsurgeons use high magnification surgical telescopes to precisely reconnect intricate blood vessels and nerves less than a few millimeters in diameter. This enables them to:

  • Reattach amputated fingers
  • Transplant large sections of tissue, muscle or bone from one part of the body to another
  • Reconstruct breasts following mastectomy
  • Repair appearance of skin and tissue following removal of bone and soft tissue tumors
  • Reconstruct the jaw and throat
  • Salvage limbs
  • Repair of skin following complex wounds
  • Treat muscle paralysis

Unlike most hospitals, we are fortunate to have a team of microsurgical plastic surgeons, which improves patient care by significantly decreasing the amount of time the patient is in surgery and under anesthesia. Microsurgical procedures have a major impact on our patients’ lives as they restore form and function to individuals impaired by trauma, cancer and congenital anomalies.
