Joseph Dayan, MD

Joseph H. Dayan, MD is a board-certified plastic surgeon specializing in microsurgical reconstruction for survivors of breast cancer and head and neck cancer. His passion is using surgical innovation and individualized care to help cancer survivors preserve or restore their relationship with their body.

With a major part of his practice focused on breast reconstruction using microsurgical techniques, Dr. Dayan offers a range of autologous (free flap) breast reconstructions, including the DIEP, GAP and PAP flaps. He also offers Resensation®, a new surgical technique used to potentially restore sensation to the breasts of women undergoing free flap reconstruction. To perform Resensation, Dr. Dayan uses a nerve graft to reconnect nerves in the chest with those in the reconstructed breast.
