Plastic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine is a program with an incredibly rich history that began in the early 1940s and has culminated into Departmental status. Through the years, our efforts have been strongly supported by four important pillars: excellence in clinical care, service, education and cutting edge research.
Tying these four pillars together are overriding themes of innovation, creativity, collaboration, and collegiality. Plastic surgery is an incredibly creative specialty, and our faculty and graduates have displayed these attributes while recognizing the importance of working closely with our colleagues in plastic surgery and other disciplines to enhance the sharing of ideas.
As we move forward with plastic surgery’s mission to restore form and function throughout the body, the University of Pittsburgh Department of Plastic Surgery will maintain its steadfast commitment to these pillars of excellent clinical care, service, education, and cutting-edge research.
