Dr. Tae Chong joins P & R Faculty
The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is pleased to introduce our newest faculty member, Dr. Tae Chong.
Dr. Tae Chong is a board-certified plastic surgeon who specializes in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. Prior to joining the faculty at University of Colorado, Dr. Chong was the director of reconstructive surgery at Parkland Hospital and was the associate program director at the University of Texas Southwestern (Dallas). There he taught the latest techniques in both cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. His focus on both the functional and aesthetic restoration of the patient is tailored for each individual.
Dr. Chong trained in general surgery at the University of Virginia and continued his plastic surgery training at the University of Pittsburgh. He continues to be involved in basic science and clinical research in cosmetic surgery, cancer reconstruction, wound healing, and transplantation.
A group of providers from our Division, led by Dr. Brooke French, recently launched CU Plastic Surgery, a new clinic at the Anschutz Health & Wellness Center. The clinic focuses on cosmetic surgery, noninvasive aesthetic procedures, and related products. Starting with its grand opening in mid-March, the clinic has done a brisk business. Visit the website.
In January 2014, Dr. Fred Deleyiannis headed a surgical team that traveled to Guatemala to perform reconstructive ear surgery on children born without ears (a condition known as microtia). This is the 13th consecutive year that Dr. Deleyiannis has travelled to Guatemala, and the second annual trip that has focused solely on microtia surgery. Read more in UCHealth Insider.
