The Division of Pediatric Plastic Surgery at UPMC Children's Hospital of Pittsburgh functions around a set of core values:

  • Creativity 
  • Respect
  • Access

Our Mission: to be the leader in providing compassionate, complete care and education to children and families with acquired and congenital disorders.  

The Division of Pediatric Plastic Surgery offers treatment for acquired and congenital problems of the head and neck, trunk and upper and lower extremities.

Specialists in the Division of Pediatric Plastic Surgery are experienced in treating a multitude of medical conditions, from conditions impairing function to appearance-related conditions with psychological effects. Specialized multidisciplinary care is offered in craniofacial surgery, as well as in reconstructive surgery of the extremities.

Conditions treated include but are not limited to:

New patients receive a comprehensive examination to determine their conditions and evaluate their needs. After the visit, the findings and recommendations are communicated clearly to the family and primary care physician.

Advances in technology, including high-resolution ultrasonography and genetic testing, offer opportunities for diagnosis of some congenital problems even before birth. A prenatal consultation can help parents understand their child’s condition and treatment options, and clarify their expectations.
