Reaching Out Through Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Research
We understand there are many in need of hope — especially those who have experienced physical and emotional pain. This pain can be caused by birth defects, injuries or disease. Hope for these people can come from new developments in plastic surgery. Research for new treatments and technology is limited to available funding which, unfortunately, is severely lacking.
The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Scott & White is working to change that. Through commitment to research and education, plastic surgeons can find more effective ways to care for their patients. All of our plastic surgeons at Scott & White are actively involved in numerous ongoing research activities. Their work has been presented at national meetings and published in the top journals of the field.
Two funds have been established at Scott & White to meet the ongoing needs of research pursuits and state-of-the-art equipment and education:
- The Plastic Surgery Development Fund
- The Plastic Surgery Education Fund
As these funds grow, so will the hopes of many patients treated here and across the world.
YOU CAN HELP
The only hope for improving a plastic surgeon's ability to restore patients to their former lives is additional and sustanable research, training and education. The cost for this commitment is great.
You can make a difference by supporting research and education through a gift to the Scott & White Plastic Surgery Development Fund or Plastic Surgery Education Fund.
