In partnership with both the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the Department of Neurosurgery, a one-year neuroplastic and reconstructive surgery fellowship trains future academic leaders in adult craniomaxillofacial and neurocranial reconstruction. We are proud to report that this fellowship is the nation’s first-ever surgical fellowship concentrating on combined training related to neuroplastic and reconstructive surgery.
The fellowship’s clinical focus is centered on treating adult patients suffering from injury, deformity, tumors and/or trauma to their face or skull region, through Neuroplastic Surgery. Fellows obtain instructor appointments through the Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine and work alongside experts in various fields including neurosurgery, plastic surgery, hematology, infectious disease, medical neuro-oncology, physical medicine and rehabilitation, radiation neuro-oncology, and head and neck surgery.
The program also includes a translational research component with focus on various aspects of adult cranial reconstruction, including computer-assisted surgery and robot-assisted surgery developments, in collaboration with the Johns Hopkins University (JHU) Applied Physics Laboratory (site director: Mehran Armand, Ph.D.) and the Walter Reed National Military Medical Center (site director: Peter Liacouras, Ph.D.). Successful completion results in a fellowship graduation certificate signed by both the Department of Neurosurgery and Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
The fellowship opportunity is available to all physicians who have completed a residency in plastic surgery approved by the Accreditation Council for Graduate Medical Education, with one available position per year.
