Biographical / historical:

The Division of Plastic, Maxillofacial, and Oral Surgery has a long history of pioneering techniques in plastic and reconstructive surgery, as well as innovative research. Some of the programs and techniques include microsurgical reconstruction; the Duke Cleft and Craniofacial team (pediatric), which was formed in the 1940s, and is one of the oldest in the country; adult craniofacial surgery; and the facial reanimation program.

The division's innovation in research has made scientific contributions in areas including flap physiology, ischemia reperfusion, adipose stem cell therapy, and nanotechnology delivery. Listed here are a number of groundbreaking devices from the division: Drs. Nicholas Georgiade and Ralph Latham's device for the care of cleft lip and palate deformities; the Talon device created by Dr. L. Scott Levin used for primary and secondary sternal closure; the quill, a barbed suture created by Dr. Greg Ruff; the Maxillary - Mandibular Fixation System created by Dr. Jeffrey Marcus to establish the proper relationship between the maxillary and mandibular teeth in trauma and elective jaw surgery operations; implantable biosenors developed by Dr. Bruce Klitzman that continuously sense key physiologic molecules; and the patent Dr. Klizman and Plastic Surgery Resident Dr. Kim Kroger received on tattoo inks for erasable tattoos.
