Our fellowship trained craniofacial surgeons provide the full spectrum of services from infants to the elderly for their craniofacial needs. We have experience in cleft lip and palates, craniosynostosis and surgical interventions for congenital anomalies for infants. We also specialize in adult craniofacial care, such as reconstruction after cancer resection, jaw surgery, TMJ pathologies and facial trauma.


By harnessing the power of the microscope, our team of microsurgery-trained reconstructive surgeons care for patients' most complex needs. We are the Midwest regional hub for autologous breast reconstruction, specialized in DIEP free flaps for post-mastectomy reconstruction, using the patient's own tissue to reconstruct what is lost. Our team of surgeons also specialize in reconstruction for limb salvage after major traumas. We are also the regional leader in lymphedema surgery, using the latest techniques and equipment to care for patients.
