It seems that more of us are electing to pursue fellowships after residency and the reasons vary widely. Some of us have had differences in training, developed a specific passion, or want a particular career path. Microsurgery is unique. It is both a technique used by plastic surgeons and also a full fledged subspecialty.

The fellowship is a one-year program directed at surgeons who have completed a plastic surgery residency.
One fellow is accepted each year. The fellow will work with all levels of a large, diverse and highly motivated group of integrated and independent plastic surgery residents. The fellowship offers the trainee the ability to progress through the year with rapid progressive autonomy and decision-making. However, there are no restrictions to working with other faculty in our Department who also perform complex microsurgical reconstruction.
Goals of this fellowship include teaching, research, and patient care with a focus on complex microsurgical oncological and reconstructive cases.
Briefly, typical cases covered include a wide range of facial trauma and cutaneous malignancy reconstructions. All aspects of microsurgical lymphedema reconstruction are performed utilizing lymphticovenous bypass and lymph node transfers using donor sites from the neck, groin and abdomen laparoscopic and open omental transfers. A full exposure is offered in orthopedic oncological reconstruction utilizing both soft-tissue and vascularized bone flaps. In addition, there are collaborative opportunities with our head and neck surgery colleagues to assist with complex microvascular oropharyngeal reconstructions.
We have an active pediatric facial reanimation service lead by Richard Redettand opportunities to participate in cases on peripheral nerve for chronic pain and migraine surgery. We have IRB approved studies in face, hand and genital reconstruction. In addition, our gender affirmation clinic was recently initiated at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the fellow is encouraged to participate in these transformative surgical procedures led by Devin O'Brien-Coon. Volume for free tissue transfers range from cases depending on fellow motivation.
Non-microsurgical oncological and traumatic cases are at the preference of the fellow learner. The program will prepare the fellow for a successful career entering into an academic, hospital-based or private practice position with advanced skills in reconstructive microsurgery.
Clinical, translational and basic science opportunities are available for the motivated fellow. Contact Kristin Hook for application information. Program director: Gedge Rosson, M.
