Plastic Surgery

Dr. Daniel Jaffurs, Plastic Surgeon, with patient and mom

We know any malformation or injury can have lasting physical and emotional effects on a child. Many conditions – even the most complex – can be repaired, allowing your child to enjoy a normal, healthy future.

Our pediatric plastic surgery team is here to expertly guide your family through every stage of treatment and healing, with a concierge-like attentiveness to your needs along the way. Whether you’re in Orange County or on the other side of the globe, you won’t find this level of care anywhere else.

What We Treat

We treat children with a full range of physical conditions, including:

Brachial Plexus Program

CHOC Children’s offers the only pediatric Brachial Plexus Program in Orange County, providing expert treatment for babies and children who have damage to the brachial plexus and peripheral nerves. Our multidisciplinary program offers families an individualized physical and occupational therapy program and the latest techniques in surgery and microsurgery. Learn more about the Brachial Plexus Program.

Cleft and Craniofacial Program

From cleft lip and cleft palate repair to complete facial reconstruction, our pediatric plastic surgeons use the very latest and advanced techniques to help a child look, eat and speak just like other children. The complexity of craniofacial disorders often requires a team approach involving specialists in other fields including ENT, neurology, genetics and orthopaedics. We’ll coordinate with each of these areas for you, while always working closely with your family to carry out a plan that is sensitive to your child’s needs. Learn more about our Cleft and Craniofacial Program.

Corrective Jaw Program

We specialize in treating all infants, children and adolescents with misaligned jaws caused by either a congenital condition or improper growth. Our experience in mandibular distraction means our patients undergo a cutting-edge procedure to lengthen the jaw, creating an opening where new bone grows rather than transferring bone from other areas of the body. Learn more about our ability to lengthen a baby’s jaw using mandibular distraction osteogenesis.

Vascular Anomalies Center

Our Vascular Anomalies Clinic comprises a multidisciplinary team of specialists who work together to assess and treat blood vessel abnormalities, such as benign tumors or malformations. Our plastic surgeons work closely with the CHOC hematology program, as well as a number of areas in CHOC including ENT and cardiology. Learn more about our Vascular Anomalies Center.
