Clinical Impact

The Plastic Surgery Foundation (The PSF) is committed to facilitating high quality, clinical and health services research that promotes evidence-based medicine in plastic surgery.

The PSF Clinical Trials Network

The PSF, in its ongoing efforts to advance the practice of plastic surgery, is continuing to develop the Clinical Trials Network. The Network is designed to be the leading facilitator of evidence-based medicine and Plastic Surgery Clinical Trials Research with a focus on improving upon quality of care and patient safety. Its charge is to build multi-center networks of leading clinicians to identify and research clinical priority areas in plastic surgery. Outcomes data from the trials will assist surgeons, patients and payers in choosing safe, effective and efficient treatment interventions.
