Surgery (Pediatric Profile)


"The great thing about plastic surgery is the opportunity to creatively solve problems and enhance people's lives. I'm rewarded each day I can engage with someone to understand their goals and make a personalized plan to meet them. The fulfillment is real after delivering care that returns a person to their full function, form, or enhances their appearance in whatever way meets their needs and expectations. This is what I strive to accomplish every day for my patients and what each individual can expect when they see me at the University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics." — Kristopher M. Day
