Plastic Surgery

Department of Surgery: Las Vegas

The faculty of the University of Nevada Plastic Surgical Residency Program places a high priority on the concept and implementation of active resident supervision during all aspects of this program. The driving force for this philosophy is educational, but we are also aware of the implications of adequate supervision on other important issues such as quality of care, cost containment, and legal liability.

Mission Statement
