Online PR News – 04-July-2013 – Holmdel, NJ – Samra Plastic Surgery is pleased to welcome Dr. Salem Samra, a Yale-trained plastic surgeon to the practice.
Dr. Salem Samra, a Yale-trained plastic surgeon with a fellowship in hand and microsurgery, joined The Samra Group on July 1, 2013. He joined the medical staff of Bayshore Community Hospital, Riverview Medical Center, Jersey Shore Medical Center, Raritan Bay Medical Center (Old Bridge and Perth Amboy Divisions), and Robert Wood Johnson University Hospital. Dr. Samra is trained in the full spectrum of plastic surgery including: craniofacial surgery, breast reconstruction, reconstructive oncology, body contouring, burn surgery, wound care, cosmetic surgery, and has particular expertise in hand and microsurgery after his fellowship training at Yale. The fellowship consisted of a 1 year immersion in the orthopedic and plastic reconstructive procedures of the wrist, hand and fingers as well as peripheral nerve surgery and microsurgical reconstruction of complex defects using free tissue transfers.
This past year Dr. Samra has participated in two surgical missions abroad. The first was in March with Hand Help, Inc. where he traveled to San Pedro Sula, Honduras for 1 week to perform hand surgeries on patients in need. The procedures involved complex reconstructive hand surgeries on patients (adults and children) with delayed presentations of nerve and tendon injuries as well as congenital deformities. He used his experience in Honduras to prepare him for his 2nd mission, a trip to Amman, Jordan from May 19-24 to operate on Syrian refugees.
Dr. Samra is the son of Syrian immigrants to the United States and felt compelled to do medical relief work to help the victims of the crisis in Syria. Through the coordination of the Syrian American Medical Society, Dr. Samra traveled to two hospitals in Amman that have been treating Syrian refugees through the sponsorship of international relief organizations. He performed 15 procedures on 9 patients, the most by an American surgeon on Syrian refugees in Jordan to date. These procedures included lower extremity reconstruction, craniofacial surgery, flap reconstruction of pressure sores in spinal cord injury patients, and complex reconstructive hand surgeries including bone, tendon, and nerve grafting. This is in addition to the distribution of approximately 200 lbs of medical supplies he carried over from the United States to distribute to medical workers aiding Syrians in need.
Dr. Samra is very excited to be returning to his native community of central New Jersey to implement his skills in plastic, reconstructive, and hand surgery to serve the people of his home state. His offices are in Old Bridge and Holmdel, NJ and consultations can be scheduled promptly beginning in July. For more info visit http://samraplasticsurgery.com/our-practise/about-us/salem-samra-md/
