Sunthosh Sivam, MD
Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Fellowship
This is a one-year fellowship in facial plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Kansas School of Medicine in Kansas City, KS. The fellow will be exposed to both reconstructive and cosmetic cases. This includes an extensive experience in rhinoplasty and nasal reconstruction, Mohs surgery reconstructions, trauma, facial reanimation, and exposure to microtia repairs. Cosmetic rhinoplasty, aging face surgery, and injectables are also well represented.
The fellow will work closely with both Co-Directors, Drs. Kriet and Humphrey, in the operating room and clinics at the main hospital, KU MedWest and the VA Medical Center. Responsibilities include patient evaluation in the office and hospital setting. At KU Medwest and KUMC, the fellow will work alongside the supervising director and assist in pre and postoperative evalutions.
In general, the fellow will spend 3-4 days a week in the operating room and 1-2 days in clinic. Starting in the second six-month period, the fellow will have the opportunity to run their own afternoon clinic at our KU MedWest site. The fellow's schedule has been constructed such that patients undergoing surgery will be seen the following week to enable continuity of care. At the Kansas City VA, the fellow will be responsible for evaluating patients pre and postoperatively while supervising a senior and junior resident on the service. This provides the opportunity for the fellow to develop their teaching skills and to work relatively independently.
The fellow is appointed as a clinical instructor and will take faculty call. The call responsibilities are on average 3 weeks a year.
