Duke’s multidisciplinary plastic and reconstructive surgery team provides personalized care for the full spectrum of congenital and acquired deformities -- from the common and straightforward to the unique and complex.
Patients benefit from the combined knowledge and experience of Duke’s expert plastic surgeons, as well as collaborators from ophthalmology, dermatology, anesthesiology, and other fields.
Patients at Duke's facilities in Durham, Raleigh, and throughout North Carolina's Triangle region have better options because of Duke surgeons’ expertise in microsurgical techniques, which involve using an operating microscope to attach tiny or delicate tissues.
Duke’s expertise in this area is hard to match. Duke plastic surgeons have long worked to perfect techniques in microsurgery. Much of the work to develop microsurgical instruments in the 1960s and 1970s was done at Duke.
Patients with complex defects can benefit from microsurgical free tissue transfers, which improve appearance and provide stable wound coverage. Duke is the largest center for microsurgical free tissue transfers in the Southeastern United States.
At Duke, we consider the relationship between patient and specialist team to be of utmost importance. So we have an ongoing informative process, including seminars and personal consultations, that lasts throughout your recovery.
From your first phone call to your final visit, we are here for you at every stage of treatment and recovery.
The skills and experience of Duke's plastic surgeons have been recognized in publications such as America's Top Doctors, Redbook, Ladies Home Journal, Raleigh Metro Magazine, and Business North Carolina.
