The Breast and Microsurgery Fellowship is a one-year program in which the fellow is exposed to a wide array of microsurgeries. The average number of microsurgery cases per year is around 300. The fellow has the opportunity to work with a large and diverse microsurgical core faculty and is involved in an average of 180–200 microsurgery cases a year. Approximately 80 percent of the cases involve microsurgical breast reconstruction (DIEP, SIEA, PAP, TUG, SGAP/IGAP), 10 percent dynamic facial palsy reconstruction, and the remainder are facial trauma and cancer, scalp, lower extremity, and upper extremity reconstructions.
The majority of surgeries are performed in William P. Clements Jr. University Hospital. Some surgeries will be performed at Zale Lipshy University Hospital based on patient needs, Children’s Health℠, and Parkland Hospital – the level I trauma center associated with UT Southwestern.
As part of the Fellowship Program, the fellow has the opportunity to see patients pre- and post-operatively in clinic based on their interest. This allows the fellow a chance to formulate surgical plans with the faculty, assess results, and encounter the treatment of complications, preparing them for their first year as faculty once they complete their training.
