When it comes to your baby or child, we know there is no such thing as minor surgery. We take the same meticulous care, no matter how simple or complex your child’s procedure. We understand that the procedures we perform on our young patients have to last a lifetime, so we strongly commit to achieving an optimal, lasting result and following your child into adolescence or adulthood to achieve that goal.
Whatever your child’s condition, there are several reasons you can trust Duke’s pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgeons to provide the highest level of care.
Straightforward Treatment Plans
We offer a range of pediatric plastic surgery services to babies born with a multitude of conditions, including deformities of the head, face, or hands, as well as babies who develop problems following an injury, illness, or previous surgery. We create straightforward treatment plans that range from setting prominent ears closer to the head, to intricate care plans involving multiple steps and specialists -- as is required for cleft lip and palate treatment. We also treat traumatic injuries resulting from disfiguring accidents.
Advanced Surgical Techniques
Our pediatric plastic surgeons have developed advanced surgical techniques for cleft lip and palate surgery, and innovative surgical devices that have transformed jaw surgery and advanced other surgeries. The team routinely receives invitations from around the world to talk about their current practices, advances, and published research findings.
