Dr. Rod Rohrich Continues In New Innovations For Plastic Surgery

Dr. Rod Rohrich is internationally known for his significant contributions in the fields of plastic and reconstructive surgery. Dr. Rod Rohrich attended medical school at the Baylor College of Medicine in Houston, Texas and began his medical career with residencies in general surgery and plastic surgery at the University of Michigan in Ann Arbor, Michigan. Once he completed residencies he accepted a prestigious fellowship in Pediatric Plastic Surgery at Radcliff Infirmary/Oxford University in Oxford, England.

He would later complete a hand and microvascular fellowship with Massachusetts General Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts. His medical career would take root at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, Texas. There he became the Chair in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in the Department of Plastic Surgery.Thanks to his efforts UT Southern has been at the forefront of innovative research in cosmetic and reconssurgery for the last two decades. His work has specifically improved facial rejuvenation, breast surgery, and rhinoplasty procedures.

Working with his team at UT Southwestern Dr. Rod Rohrich has published over 1,500 scientific papers on plastic and reconstructive surgery. One of his research projects led Dr. Rod Rohrich to patent a new breast implant. The new breast implant consists of a patented blend of polyethylene glycol (PEG) and saline. The benefits of this new implant are the look and feel of silicone without the toxicity and associated health risks that come with silicone breast implants. From his research Dr. Rod Rohrich has concluded that PEG appears to be non-toxic, non-immunogenic, and non-carcinogenic.

A California based company Patent Discovery Corp has since procured the rights to the patent and is working with UT Southwestern and Dr. Rod. Rohrich to further develop and commercialise the technology. Dr. Rod Rohrich will continue to be a leader in the field of plastic and reconstructive surgery as he continues to hold UT Southwestern as a top institution for plastic surgery training.
