Plastic/Reconstructive Surgery

Plastic surgery can be divided into two main categories, cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.  This specialty involves the restoration, reconstruction, or alteration of the human body.

Here at Sacred Herat Hospital our plastic surgeons care for patients requiring reconstructive surgery such as craniofacial surgery, hand surgery, microsurgery, and the treatment of burns. Reconstructive surgery aims to improve function of a part of the body while cosmetic surgery aims to improve the appearance of it.
