Elizabeth Dale, MD
Elizabeth Dale, MD is a board-certified plastic and reconstructive surgeon at UC Health in Cincinnati, Ohio, and an assistant professor of surgery at the University of Cincinnati Medical Center Division of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery/Burn Surgery.
Dr. Dale has a special interest in reconstructive microsurgery, burn surgery and breast reconstruction, including autologous (free flap) breast reconstruction. Free flap reconstruction, such as the DIEP flap, uses a woman’s own tissue to reconstruct breasts after mastectomy.
Dr. Dale is one of a select number of plastic surgeons in Ohio offering Resensation®, a surgical technique available to women undergoing free flap breast reconstruction. By reconnecting nerves in the chest with nerves in the natural tissue used to create new breasts, Resensation has the potential to restore sensation to reconstructed breasts.
