Microsurgery Reconstructive Surgery
Microsurgery is a highly technical and skilled surgery requiring a Fellowship trained plastic surgeon. The first microsurgery operation was performed in 1973. Following 25 years of development, it now holds a critical position in the care of patients.
A free flap is essentially a composite block of tissue transplanted from one part of the body to another distant site where its circulation (artery and vein) is restored utilizing microsurgical techniques. The ability to close wounds and restore form and function utilizing the transplanted tissue will forever change the modern approach to reconstruction.
Free flap surgery is a complex operation that requires a high degree of surgical expertise and experience. Dr. Conrad Tirre has extensive advanced training in Microsurgery. Dr. Tirre is an active Member of the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery. Dr. Tirre performs free flap, rotational flaps and limb preservation procedures for the Breast, Trunk, Head and Neck, Lower Extremities and Hand.
"Thank you so much for operating on D. The steps you had to take to
perform the operation and the healing process is truly amazing! Every
day seems to be a little bit better. Just getting his foot into a
shoe two sizes too big gives him confidence that he is getting back to
normal activities. Obviously, skiing is questionable at this stage,
but he is quite determined – only time will tell."
