Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery

The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery Department combines a team of pediatric surgeons and other specialists who treat children with developmental abnormalities and birth defects in both the upper and lower face, the neck, the hands, and cleft lips or palates. Conditions like these affect your child's appearance and the way their body works, so you want not only the most experienced pediatric reconstruction surgeons but also a hospital with a comprehensive rehabilitation unit. Specializing in corrective surgery for cranio-maxillofacial surgery and hand and microsurgery, we're also one of Northern California’s leading pediatric centers for the treatment and repair of congenital anomalies and reconstruction following acute trauma.
