We have active research and development programs in many aspects of facial plastic surgery. These include NIH-funded studies with collaboration in the Departments of Neurological Surgery, Bioengineering, and Electrical Engineering. Multiple patents and devices have resulted from these projects, as well as new procedures and novel techniques in virtual surgery, preoperative surgical planning, and computer-aided surgery. We greatly appreciate donations to our research program which directly impact patient care at all levels.
