Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Children who need plastic surgery often have complex medical needs best met by a team of pediatric specialists from many different disciplines. You can find those specialists at CHKD, the region’s only plastic surgery practice just for children.
Our services are designed specifically to meet the medical, developmental and emotional needs of your child. We offer convenient access to pediatric experts in neurosurgery, genetics, dermatology, orthodontics, oral surgery, ophthalmology, developmental pediatrics and speech, physical and occupational therapy. We’ll care for your little one in a setting created to make children comfortable. And we’ll make every effort to take good care of you, too, with the information, respect and compassion you deserve.
Conditions We Treat
Knowledge, Experience and Compassion
Dr. George Hoerr (rhymes with “care”) leads our pediatric plastic surgery team and has more than 20 years of experience, education and training. But he also has something equally important that can’t be taught: a great rapport with children and parents. His unique combination of warmth and expertise puts his patients and their parents at ease.
Dr. Jesus Gil B. "Jegit" Inciong joined CHKD's team in April of 2014. Dr. received his medical degree from the University of the Philippines, where he also completed a residency in plastic surgery. After finishing a second residency in plastic surgery at the University of Southern California, Dr. Inciong completed fellowships in plastic surgery at the University of Miami and microsurgery and craniofacial/maxillofacial surgery at Eastern Virginia Medical School.
Dr. Inciong has been a longtime volunteer for Operation Smile, performing cleft lip and palate repairs all over the world and is board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
Their services are backed by CHKD’s renowned surgery program, the region's only surgery program dedicated exclusively to children. Our staff also includes one of the hospital’s top nurse practitioners, who has advanced training in wound care.
One of the most amazing things about plastic surgery is the ability to transform a child's life. See before and after pictures of Dr. Hoerr's patients in the video player to the right.
Insurance and Referral Information
If you have an HMO, you must:
- Get a referral from your child's primary care physician before you call to make an appointment.
- Make sure your referral has not expired. Many are good for only 30 days, so check yours before you come to your appointment. If your referral has expired, call your primary care physician and explain your situation. In most cases, your primary care physician will provide a new or extended referral.
- Bring the referral with you to the appointment. If you do not have a referral, or if the referral you have is expired, your HMO will not pay for your appointment.
If you have fee-for-service insurance or a PPO, you do not need a physician's referral to make an appointment.
We offer in-depth information about insurance in our billing and insurance section.
