Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery

The Hansjörg Wyss Department of Plastic Surgery at NYU Langone Health was founded in 1955 with the support of the National Foundation of Facial Reconstruction to provide comprehensive care in a multidisciplinary setting for patients requiring plastic surgery services. It is housed in a new state-of-the-art facility that contains Centers of Excellence, faculty clinical offices and full service outpatient operating rooms. All of the attending staff hold academic appointments. The Department conducts one of the largest plastic surgery and postdoctoral dental residency educational programs in the world. The department research program has made major contributions in the areas of transplantation, wound healing, craniofacial biology, computer graphics, and distraction osteogenesis.
