The Department of Plastic Surgery has developed a comprehensive basic, translational, and clinical research program in the areas of cleft lip and palate, craniosynostosis, vascular anomalies, congenital hand defects, and adolescent breast issues. The deparmtent also has a separate research laboratory which focuses on cranioplasty, angiogenesis, and vaccum-assisted wound closure. While the research program is focused on developing new techniques and increasing the knowledge of conditions commonly encountered in the department, there is also a large focus on the clinical applicability of the research conducted. Our basic science questions are derived from clinical experience, and our aim is to translate the knowledge gained in the laboratory back to the clinic to improve patient care.
