Read Parent letters
Division Director Gary F. Rogers, MD, JD, MBA, MPH, leads a team of fellowship-trained pediatric plastic surgeon uniquely qualified to treat the physical, physiological, and psychological needs of young patients who are still growing.

Three full-time plastic surgeons at Children’s National Medical Center work exclusively with children and teens. Other members of your child’s care team include physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, pediatric anesthesiologists, and a compassionate administrative staff – all in one place to provide thorough, comprehensive care for your child and support for your family.

As well, your child has access to physicians in more than 40 pediatric subspecialties at Children’s National, the largest pediatric specialty presence in the Washington, DC, area. Specialists who work closely with the division include:
  • Audiologists
  • Dentists
  • Geneticists
  • Neurosurgeon
  • Opthalmologists
  • Oral surgeons
  • Orthodontists
  • Otolaryngologists
  • Psychologists
  • Speech pathologists

The Difference at Children’s National
Children’s has one of the most experienced pediatric surgical teams in the United States. Parents from across the country and around the world bring their children to Children’s National for our clinical expertise provided exclusively for kids.

Plastic and reconstructive surgery are often necessary to help restore appearance and function for patients with various conditions, such as congenital birth defects that can affect a child’s skull, face, hands, feet, or skin surface, among other parts of the body. Common conditions we treat:
  • Burns
  • Cleft lip and palate
  • Microtia (congenital ear deformity)
  • Craniosynostosis (abnormally shaped head)
  • Hand deformities
  • Foot deformities

We never consider a procedure routine. For each child’s case, our specialists carry out a thorough evaluation before deciding on an individualized course of treatment.

In addition to our dedicated pediatric specialists, our operating room equipment and facilities are designed for children, with waiting and resting areas close by for families. During the procedure, Children’s National guarantees that your child’s anesthesia is administered by a fellowship-trained pediatric anesthesiologist.
