expert care for children who need plastic surgery

Dayton Children’s provides comprehensive pediatric plastic and reconstructive surgery care for babies, children and adolescents. Some therapies are very straightforward, such as a surgical repair for a dog bite. Others are complex and require a team of specialists.

Among the conditions our plastic and reconstructive surgeons treat are:

  • Burns requiring debridement, grafts, etc.
  • Cleft lip and cleft palate
  • Conditions requiring breast reduction, reconstruction, etc.
  • Congenital hand malformations, such as webbed or absent fingers
  • Complex wounds
  • Conditions requiring cranial vault surgery, such as those associated with flat-head syndrome (positional plagiocephaly/torticollis), synostosis syndromes and others
  • Craniofacial malformations requiring distraction surgery (surgery to lengthen and shape bones in the skull)
  • Ear malformations requiring total reconstruction
  • Facial lacerations and fractures
  • Traumatic injuries to the hand (injuries to tendons, nerves and skin)
  • Other problems associated with the hand, such as cysts, missing digits and trigger digits
  • Vascular malformations and tumors
  • Port wine stains
  • Malignant tumors (surgical removal with limb salvage)
  • Nasal malformations
  • Cysts, tumors, moles and other growths within soft tissue
  • Pierre Robin sequence
