Second Opinions for Pediatric Plastic Surgery

Children’s Hospital Colorado is committed to providing the highest standard of plastic and reconstructive surgery to all children, from newborns to adolescents.

At the Department of Pediatric Plastic Surgery, we use plastic and reconstructive surgery to address a variety of different conditions, both congenital (present at birth) and acquired. We have advanced training and technology that help us develop a unique treatment plan for each child. Your child’s treatment can be optimized, too, by getting a second opinion from our plastic surgery team.

Getting a second opinion from Children’s Hospital Colorado’s expert plastic surgery team is simple. Just schedule an initial phone call with our team for them to gather information and discuss your child’s medical history. After that call, our team will decide which specialist will be best for your child to see for an in-person second opinion appointment.
