About The Institute For
Our commitment to the patient experience distinguishes the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction from other care centers.
While we pride ourselves on modern treatments, the heart of our mission centers on patient care. We invest in people, not merely their medical concerns, and work to heal physical discomfort as well as emotional pain. To that end, we take time to understand your concerns and goals.
Working together to create a customized treatment plan that maximizes your health and wellness.
To enhance your comfort, we perform many of our reconstructive procedures at our private, state-of-the-art surgical facility, The Center for Outpatient Surgery. Our surgery center is New Jersey State Licensed and Medicare Accredited, and accredited according to the standards of the American Association for Accreditation of Ambulatory Surgery Facilities, Inc. (AAAASF).
The doctors and surgeons at the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction are highly trained – many with double-board certifications. As proven innovators in the field of plastic reconstructive surgery, we are at the forefront of research and collaborate with experts from around the globe to drive essential progress in plastic surgical care.
Few facilities in the world have the training and expertise to perform the groundbreaking techniques offered at the Institute for Advanced Reconstruction. In addition, we work hand-in-hand with top clinical partners to ensure patients receive holistic, comprehensive care.

Axon Advance Foundation
Having a spinal cord injury or peripheral nerve damage often means living with limited functionality and pain. The Axon Advance Foundation aims to change this.
Established in 2012 by doctors at The Institute for Advanced Reconstruction, the Axon Advance Foundation is a non-profit organization focused on new horizons in research, innovation, and surgical treatments for peripheral nerve damage and spinal cord injury.
The Foundation works closely with the W.M. Keck Center for Collaborative Neuroscience at Rutgers University and its focus on spinal cord injury. From bench top to clinical research, the goal of the Foundation is to improve treatment options for patients.
At Axon Advance Foundation, we are proud to join the medical community in spearheading life-changing discoveries and procedures for those living with various forms of paralysis, nerve disorders, and spinal cord injury.
We are proud to be a part of the Advanced Reconstructive Surgery Alliance (ARSA). Working with ARSA empowers our team to focus unencumbered on what matters most – our patients. As a member of ARSA, our reconstructive and cosmetic surgeons benefit from an adaptive business environment with infrastructure, marketing, and the level of excellence that enables them to concentrate on the business of providing extraordinary clinical services.
