Bruce A Mast MD, FACS

Maurice J. Jurkiewicz Professor And Chief, Plastic And Reconstructive Surgery; Associate Dean Of Regional Programs

For as long as I can remember, I had a desire to make a difference. As a professor and chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery, I seek to make a difference for those I treat and those I work with. I was drawn to plastic surgery because it allows me to treat patients with various conditions that affect function or appearance as a result of birth defects, trauma, illness and aging. I specialize in cosmetic surgical procedures, breast reconstruction and reduction and skin cancer. As a provider, I aim to provide care that is both compassionate and individualized to each patient.

I earned my medical degree from the Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Thereafter, I completed a general surgery residency at the Medical College of Virginia (now the VCU Medical Center) in Richmond. Then, I completed a plastic and reconstructive surgery fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh and the Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh. Previously, I have served as an assistant professor of surgery in the UF Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery from 1995 to 2000, followed by working in private practice in Gainesville for 10 years before returning to UF in 2010.

Since 1995, I have been practicing as a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery. I am a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and serve in a variety of leadership roles in regional and national plastic surgery organizations. Additionally, I have lectured nationally and internationally on the topics of aesthetic surgery and breast surgery. Many instances, I have been recognized by various organizations as Top Doctor or among Top Plastic Surgeons.

When I am not practicing at UF Health Plastic Surgery and Aesthetics Center, I enjoy spending time with my family. Also, I enjoy staying active by backpacking, cycling and doing strength training.

Harvey W M Chim MD, FACS

Professor

I am an expert in upper and lower extremity limb salvage, brachial plexus and complex peripheral nerve reconstruction within the University of Florida Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. I am a board-certified plastic surgeon through the American Board of Plastic Surgery with a Certificate of Added Qualifications in Surgery of the Hand. Patients are referred to me on a routine basis from all over Florida and the Southeastern U.S. In 2018, I received the Gelberman Scholar Award from the American Society for Surgery of the Hand (ASSH). From there, I travelled around the world teaching and learning new surgical techniques as a representative of the ASSH and North American hand surgery. Recently, I served as a visiting professor for the ASSH, teaching peripheral nerve surgery to programs around the U.S.

I have authored more than 130 publications in peer-reviewed journals and serve as an associate editor for The Journal of Hand Surgery and the HAND journal. I am on the editorial board for the HAND, American Society for Surgery of the Hand and the Asian Pacific Journal of Hand Surgery. I also serve on the committee for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand and Plastic Surgery Research Council. Prior, I served as a scientific peer reviewer for the United States Department of Defense and received funding from The Plastic Surgery Foundation as well as the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons.

My plastic surgery residency was completed at Case Western Reserve University in Cleveland. Following, I completed a fellowship in hand and microsurgery at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota. Other clinical areas of interest include vascularized bone grafts, endoscopic hand and plastic surgery and surgical treatment of migraine headaches.

I want to continually push frontiers by developing new techniques and methods to treat our patients. I am engaged in research, and dedicated to developing new surgical techniques and assess outcomes.

In my spare time, I enjoy reading, traveling and spending time with family.

Kalyan C Dadireddy

Kalyan C Dadireddy MD, MS, Mch

Clinical Assistant Professor

Watching my father, who is a general surgeon, take care of patients from remote and underserved areas growing up inspired my direction to become a doctor. After my general surgery residency, I recognized my strengths of being meticulous and problem solving. The rest is history, and now I am an Assistant professor with the University of Florida Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. My treatment philosophy is simple: I listen to my patients to understand their needs and strive to deliver the best personalized treatment plan that is achievable.

I am a skilled plastic surgeon with five years of active practice. My training started in India, where I received my bachelor’s degrees for surgery and medicine at NDMVP Samaj Medical College (now Dr. Vasantrao Pawar Medical College, Hospital & Research Centre). I also achieved a Master of Surgery in Genral surgery at Mahadevappa Rampure Medical College and a Master of Chirurgiae in Plastic and Reconstructive surgery at the Sri Ramachandra Medical College. Thereafter, I completed three plastic surgery fellowships in burn surgery, microsurgery and pediatric craniofacial surgery at the University of Tennessee Health Science Center in Memphis.

In India, I am also board certified in general surgery, in addition to plastic and reconstructive surgery. Prior to arriving at UF, I was at the University of Tennessee as a plastic surgeon and faculty member for five years. In addition to my several research publications, I am a member of various organizations domestically and globally, such as the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, Association of Plastic Surgeons of India, Indian Society for Surgery of the Hand, American Burn Association and Indian Medical Association.

As a plastic surgeon at UF Health and Halifax Health, I have profound passion for restoring the function and natural beauty that every patient deserves. I am a board-certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery with over 7,000 completed surgical procedures, including cosmetic, craniofacial, hand, breast reconstruction, lower extremity reconstruction, microsurgery and complex wound care. I specialize in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery.

I underwent post-baccalaureate training at Harvard University and earned my doctor of medicine degree from Tufts University. I was then recruited by the renowned University of Florida Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Residency Program, where I demonstrated exemplary clinical care and technical skills. There, I was selected as chief resident and served as a resident liaison to the American Society for Plastic Surgeons.

Over the course of my career, I have presented at several society meetings and authored numerous articles, manuscripts and textbook chapters on a range of topics, including surgical site complications, anesthesia, calvarial reconstruction and plastic surgery resident selection. My expertise as a plastic surgeon brought me to Honduras, where I got the gift to provide care for children with cleft deformities and illnesses.

As a physician, I am dedicated to bringing care to those in need. I volunteered on ambulances as an EMT and National Registry licensed paramedic both locally at Narberth Ambulance and across the east coast for nearly a decade.

Ellen Satteson

Ellen Satteson MD

Assistant Professor

My name is Dr. Satteson, and I am an assistant professor and plastic surgeon in the University of Florida Department of Surgery. The intricate anatomy of the hand drew my pursuit in hand surgery, in addition to getting patients back to their normal activities. As a physician, my goal is to provide quality, compassionate, patient-centered and customizable care for each of my patients.

My journey started at Georgetown University School of Medicine where I earned my medical degree. Shortly after, I completed my integrated plastic surgery residency at Wake Forest School of Medicine, where I have been a member of the Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Medical Society since 2011. During my residency, I was awarded the Wake Forest Plastic Surgery Resident Research Award and won the American Society for Surgery of the Hand Annual Meeting Scholarship. Finally, I completed a hand and upper limb fellowship at Stanford University.

In 2022, I was selected as a Young Leader for the American Society for Surgery of the Hand. Prior, I completed multiple medical mission trips in Bolivia, Dominican Republic, Moldova and most recently in Zimbabwe. Additionally, my publications have been in the top of hand and plastic surgery journals and I have been asked to speak at national conferences. I am a member of the Southeastern Society of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgeons, among several other affiliations

In my leisure time, I enjoy staying active by hiking, running, and reading fiction. I also enjoy traveling around the world. Some of my most favorite trips were visiting the Galapagos Islands, Iceland, New Zealand and Thailand.
