Job Title: Plastic Surgeon
Date Available: Immediate
Location: Geisinger Health System, Danville, PA
Description: Geisinger Health System is seeking two board certified or in the process of certification Plastic Surgeons to join the Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. We are recruiting to replace one physician who is relocating and one physician who is retiring in 2019.

Prefer microsurgical experience or fellowship training.
