Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division

Main Office Number: 720-848-0800

The Division of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Hand Surgery is a group of talented surgeons who specialize in the most complex and delicate of operations: the reconstruction of a child’s face and head, the reassembly of a hand or wrist after injury, the realignment of a feature gone awry, the rebuilding of a body battered by cancer or wound. The faculty also emphasizes state of the art management of the cosmetic concerns of patients. Some of the faculty have traveled to developing countries to perform free reconstructive surgical care for congenital deformities for those who cannot afford the treatment. Our plastic surgeons have performed and perfected thousands of procedures from minimally invasive techniques to major reconstructive work.

It is our mission to bring the full measure of human knowledge, talent and compassion to bear on the healing of sickness and injury and the advancement of health and wellness through programs in patient care, education, and research
The Division strives to:
    • Have a welcoming spirit
    • Provide excellent service to our patients in our communities
    • World class clinical outcomes
    • Respect for our patients and for each other
    • Quality, efficiency, and cost effectiveness
    • Collaboration and caring
    • Careful use of our resources
Plastic surgery is a combination of art and science. We are proud of the excellent work our team performs at the University of Colorado. Our providers offer their clinical services at University of Colorado Hospital, Children's Hospital Colorado, VA Medical Center and Denver Health.
