Flap surgery involves removing tissue from a donor site and transferring it to a recipient site with blood vessels, subcutaneous fat, muscles, bones and tendons still intact.

This technique can restore form and function to areas of the body affected by wounds or soft tissue defects of any cause. Our doctors can use a variety of flap types to suit your needs, and we use the most advanced surgical techniques to minimize the chance of damaging or weakening the donor site.
