Dr. Bernstein with cancer reconstructive patient

Patients who've had cancer surgically removed may face certain issues with healing. SLUCare plastic surgeons can help – from closing of the surgical site to repair and reconstruction of the area where the tumor was removed. 

CoolSculpting Procedure

 The CoolSculpting procedure is the only FDA-cleared, non-surgical fat-reduction treatment that uses controlled cooling to eliminate stubborn fat that resists all efforts through diet and exercise. The results are proven, noticeable and lasting.

Baby with cleft lip

Correcting craniofacial deformities is a delicate task that requires the skills of a highly trained surgeon.

Looking in the mirror.

People see plastic surgeons for a variety of everyday conditions that affect the skin – to lessen the appearance of scars, for example. SLUCare plastic surgeons assist not only with these more routine procedures, but also with complex cases that may require extensive reconstruction.

Hand Surgery

With 27 bones plus a network of nerves and tendons, the hand is a complex structure — highly susceptible to injuries and other medical problems. Returning a hand to normal function takes a skilled team of specialists who understand the intricacies of hand surgery and the importance of follow-up care. SLUCare plastic surgeons offer relief.

Limb Repair

Wounds to the arms and legs can be difficult to treat when tissue or bone loss is significant. SLUCare plastic surgeons provide advanced care in collaboration with other specialists to help patients better manage their condition.

Pediatric plastic surgery

SLUCare pediatric plastic surgeons treat children with a wide range of medical conditions – from skin growths and discoloration to disfiguring conditions such as cleft lip, cleft palate and chest deformities. We treat young patients at SSM Health Cardinal Glennon Children's Hospital.


Tissue regrowth

How can a pig salvage a severed thumb? Regrow fingertips after a dog bite? Or restore tissue to a leg nearly crushed in a car accident? Dr. Bruce Kraemer, SLUCare plastic surgeon, uses a restorative treatment – derived from pig cells – to help patients at risk of losing their fingers or limbs after a severe traumatic injury.

Wound Care

SLUCare plastic surgeons offer the newest treatment options to help stabilize hard-to-treat wounds and promote lasting healing.
