As faculty of the Yale University School of Medicine Department of Surgery, our surgeons are internationally recognized for excellence in the most complex and delicate of operations, such as the reconstruction of a child’s face and head, the reconstruction of a hand after an injury, the realignment of facial features, and the aesthetic enhancement of the face and body. 

We believe that everyone deserves a chance at a better life.
