Division of Plastic Surgery

City of Hope's Division of Plastic Surgery understands that for a patient, preserving a positive self-image is one of the most important considerations in the aftermath of certain types of cancer surgery.
 
Our goal? Provide our patients with functional and aesthetically-sensitive reconstructive surgery that helps them retain that self-image.
 
Our team possesses extensive experience in the latest complex microsurgical techniques, including perforator flaps, for reconstruction after treatment of cancers of the breast, head and neck, extremities, torso and skin. Other available services include dermatology and Mohs micrographic surgery, where skin cancer is removed one layer at a time with immediate examination of each layer by a pathologist until cancer is no longer detected.
 
We work closely with all members of the patient’s physician team in order to achieve the best possible reconstructive result without compromising the effectiveness of the surgical treatment.
