For patients who suffer from deformities resulting from birth, traumatic injury or cancer surgery, reconstructive surgery may help. Reconstructive surgery typically is performed with two goals in mind: restoring function and improving appearance.
Plastic surgeons who perform reconstructive surgery often have special expertise in plastic surgery for a particular area of the body, such as the face, breast, trunk, upper and lower extremities, or hands.
At Cleveland Clinic, multispecialty patient care teams include specialists from the Department of Plastic Surgery; the Hand and Upper Extremity Center; the Departments of Orthopaedic Surgery, Dentistry and General Surgery; the Cleft Lip and Palate Clinic; the Craniofacial Clinic; the Melanoma Clinic; and the Breast Center. These patient care teams offer hope for patients in need of reconstructive surgery at Cleveland Clinic.
