Additional Program Information: The Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at William Beaumont Hospital and Oakland University William Beaumont School of Medicine offers a 1- year fellowship in microsurgery and craniofacial surgery. The fellow will assist in reconstructive microsurgery cases including DIEP/GAP/TUG/PAP flap breast reconstruction (100 cases per year), head and neck free flap reconstruction (20 cases per year), and lower extremity reconstruction with free flap (20 cases per year). There is ample opportunity for the fellow to participate in Mohs defect facial reconstruction (100 cases per year), implant based breast reconstruction (50 cases per year), and other unusual complex reconstruction cases. The fellow will play a key role in the monthly multidisciplinary Cleft Palate and Craniofacial Clinic. Per year, we perform approximately 30 cases of primary cleft lip and palate repair, 60 cases of secondary cleft lip and palate repair including septorhinoplasty, 20 intracranial procedures including cranial distraction, 5-10 cases of midface and mandible distraction, and 40 cases of orthognathic surgeries. We are a level I trauma center with plenty of opportunity to manage facial trauma and secondary post-traumatic deformities. The fellow will have the opportunity to rotate for 1 month at a microsurgery training program of their choosing. Previous fellows have rotated at Chang Gung, but other opportunities are available upon request.
