Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Division Research

The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is committed to fulfilling Stony Brook’s mission of excellence in research, and to advancing scientific knowledge to improve patient care and population health.

Current research programs in the Division are focused on the development of tissue-engineered vascular grafts for use in reconstructive surgeries, antibiotic prophylaxis in breast reconstruction, prevention of mastectomy skin flap necrosis, outcomes research in breast reconstruction, and cosmetic botulinum toxin effect duration analysis.

Recent funding in support of the Division’s research has been provided by the Plastic Surgery Foundation, Carol M. Baldwin Breast Cancer Research Award, Walk for Beauty Foundation Award, and Department of Surgery Seed Grant Awards.

Our faculty's publications demonstrate our commitment to moving the science of surgery forward.
