What is Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery?

Plastic and reconstructive surgery (PRS) stands apart from other surgical subspecialties as it is not bound to a specific region of the body or list of procedures. PRS prides itself on advancing surgical care through innovative approaches to surgical challenges. In addition to the full array of procedures that PRS offers patients, PRS surgeons often partner with other surgical specialties to ensure optimal patient outcomes.

Role of the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Interest Group

The Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Interest Group (PRSIG) exists to help you explore the breadth of skills and procedures expected of plastic surgeons. PRSIG seeks to foster collaborative efforts that enhance and promote UAMS students to successfully match into integrated plastic surgery residency programs.

PRSIG provides meaningful opportunities for members, such as

  • Interactions with Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery faculty members
  • Collaboration with department faculty on research projects
  • Information about upcoming events

If you’re interested in joining PRSIG, please email Michael Powell at MSPowell@uams.edu or request to join the PRSIG Facebook group.
