Texas Children's Hospital announces new chief of the division of plastic surgery

HOUSTON, Dec. 6, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Renowned pediatric plastic surgeon Dr. Larry Hollier has been appointed as chief of the division of plastic surgery at Texas Children's Hospital. Hollier, whose appointment was effective Nov. 8, will continue his roles as professor of plastic surgery and pediatrics, and director of the residency program for the division of plastic surgery at Baylor College of Medicine. For more information about plastic surgery visit texaschildrens.org.

An eminent leader in the field of pediatric plastic surgery for nearly 15 years, Hollier has distinguished himself in a variety of research, clinical and academic roles. His clinical interests include pediatric reconstructive surgery, craniofacial and pediatric hand surgery. His primary research is directed toward pediatric craniofacial surgery and outcomes. He has authored more than 250 book chapters and publications in various academic and medical journals and is the recipient of numerous honors and awards, including his recognition and inclusion on the list of Best Doctors in America for five consecutive years, as well as being named one of Texas' Super Doctors from 2010-2012.

"Dr. Hollier's experience as a surgeon, researcher and academician is an invaluable asset to our hospital," said Dr. Charles D. Fraser, surgeon-in-chief at Texas Children's Hospital. "He will certainly be an exceptional leader and educator to our renowned division of pediatric plastic surgery." 

Board-certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery, Hollier received his undergraduate degree from Duke University and earned his medical degree from Tulane University School of Medicine in New Orleans. After completing his general surgery residency program at the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas, he went on to pursue specialized training in plastic surgery. He then completed fellowships in hand and microvascular surgery, as well as craniofacial surgery.

"My goal is to create the most comprehensive pediatric plastic surgery unit in the world, setting the standards for innovative care in craniofacial and cleft surgery, hand and microvascular surgery and all of our component areas," said Dr. Larry Hollier. "With the tremendous backing of Texas Children's Hospital, we are already well on our way there."

Hollier is a member of the International Society of Craniofacial Surgery, the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, the American Cleft Palate Association, the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgery and the Association for Academic Surgery. He also currently serves on the medical advisory board of Smile Train, an international, not-for-profit organization that helps children born with cleft lips and palates.
