    Experience and Education

    Professional History

    Dr. Ingrid Ganske’s clinical interests include cleft lip and palate, pigmented lesions, vascular anomalies, reconstruction of soft tissue deficits, ear construction, and breast surgery. She completed postgraduate training in the Harvard Plastic Surgery Residency, followed by a Craniofacial Fellowship at Boston Children’s Hospital.  Upon completion of her training, she stayed on as a full staff member at Boston Children’s Hospital.

    Dr. Ganske comes to the field of plastic surgery from a background in design, having studied architecture at Princeton University before pursuing a medical degree at Harvard Medical School. She brings an architectural eye to problems in craniofacial, cleft lip/palate, and soft tissue reconstruction. Her research interests are in 3-dimensional symmetry and outcomes in cleft lip/palate, facial animation, and craniofacial surgery. She remains actively involved in the education of plastic surgery residents and is a Course Director for an innovative class at Harvard Medical School that uses art observation to improve skills of physical diagnosis and patient-centered care.
