Plastic Surgery

  • Plastic Surgery Research at Cincinnati Children’s

    Our research focuses on a few main areas. The Bone Tissue Engineering research program investigates new methods of engineering bone for craniofacial reconstruction. Findings from these projects may soon improve the quality and success of craniomaxillofacial reconstruction surgery, intended to repair congenital defects.

    Another area of research explores the developmental processes behind craniofacial shape. By better understanding the musculoskeletal influences that control skull development, we hope to gain insight into the causes of craniofacial anomalies.

  • Diverse Research into Facial Abnormalities

    We conduct basic science research using a systems biology approach to identify miRs that could result in facial abnormalities. Additional clinical research studies various causes and outcomes of mandibular distraction, and assesses the outcomes of cleft lip and palate surgery.
