Howard N. Langstein, M.D., is the Chief of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Rochester Medical Center, bringing a wealth of experience to the Rochester area, particularly in microvascular reconstruction.

Microvascular procedures are surgeries done through microscopes involving very small blood vessels, often used in reconstruction after cancer treatment.

Langstein came to Rochester, NY from the University of Texas M.D. Anderson Cancer Center in Houston where he most recently served as associate professor of Plastic Surgery and director of the Department of Plastic Surgery Graduate Medical Education Programs. In addition to microvascular reconstruction expertise, Langstein has special interest in breast, head and neck surgery, as well as cosmetic procedures.

In the mid-1990s, Langstein served in various surgical positions at Mercy Hospital and the University of Pittsburgh. He returned to Houston in 1998 where he was eventually promoted to associate professor at M.D. Anderson and named director of one of the world's preeminent microsurgical training programs.
