About the Clinic
The Department of Plastic Surgery is the largest division of its kind in North America. Consisting of nine plastic surgeons with world-recognized expertise, as well as an extensive team of fellows, nurses, allied health professionals and administrative staff, the Plastic Surgery Clinic is committed to providing the best family-centred care to our patients and families.
Areas of paediatric plastic surgery include but are not limited to cleft lip and palate surgery, craniofacial anomalies, burns, congenital hand and upper extremity anomalies, extremity trauma and oncologic defects, microtia, giant congenital nevi, vascular anomalies and nerve injuries.
The first thing to do is register at Plastics Registration, Room M465, in the Plastic Surgery Clinic on the Main Floor. The clinic is located on the Main Floor of the Black Wing, between the Specialty Food Shop and Shoppers Drug Mart. The clinic is most easily accessible from the University Avenue entrance.
What to Expect During Your Visit
During your first visit to the Plastic Surgery Clinic your family will consult with one of our plastic surgeons to discuss diagnosis and treatment options. Surgical procedures will not be performed in the initial visit. If the staff doctor determines your child requires surgery, our clinic nurse will speak with you before you leave the clinic.
As SickKids is a teaching hospital, your child may be examined by either a resident or fellow before seeing the staff physician.
With family-centred care as an essential component of our interprofessional team approach, your visit at the Plastic Surgery Clinic may also involve our team of advanced practice nurses, audiologists, dietitians, occupational therapists, physiotherapists, research staff, social workers, and speech and language pathologists.
To make your experience at SickKids a positive one, a Child Life Specialist may also be involved in your visit to provide therapeutic play programs designed to reduce stress, help patients cope with hospitalization, and prepare children for medical and surgical procedures.
