Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

Welcome to the Division!

Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a diverse surgical subspecialty that involves surgery on all parts of the human body and closely interacts with all other medical and surgical specialties. Our division consists of eight full-time paediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeons making us the largest division of its kind in North America. Our staff have world recognized expertise in all areas of pediatric plastic surgery including craniofacial and cleft surgery, obstetrical brachial plexus palsy, peripheral nerve injury, congenital anomalies of the upper extremity, burns, facial reanimation, post-traumatic and post-oncologic reconstruction, ear reconstruction, microsurgery, vascular anomalies and skin disorders to name a few. 

Interprofessional and family-centered care is an essential component of our team approach to managing the conditions seen in our clinics. Our nursing team, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, social workers, child life specialists, orthotists, speech and language pathologists and administrative support staff are all available to make your experience at SickKids a positive one.

In addition to patient care, we are an active teaching center associated with the training and education of some of the best and brightest students from the University of Toronto and around the world.  

Research is an important component of our division and all staff members have an active interest in promoting research in both basic science and clinical arenas. Research is an essential component of our division mission and is necessary to provide the answers to managing some of the difficult clinical problems that we face as clinicians. We support the training of Surgeon-Scientists in our division and have a busy summer studentship research program.
