Plastic surgeons affiliated with CHKD provide pediatric reconstructive or corrective surgery to improve the appearance and/or formation of body features or parts affected by injury, disease or abnormal development.
What conditions do you treat?
With a dedication to the treatment of infants, children and adolescents, our program offers a unique level of experience and expertise in pediatric plastic surgery. We care for children with a variety of conditions, including:
Does your staff have special training?
Each physician is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and/or the American Board of Otolaryngology.
Do I need a referral to make an appointment?
This depends on what kind of insurance you have.
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 that 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.
