Chief Resident, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
Northwestern Memorial Hospital
Sumanas W. Jordan, MD, PhD, is a chief resident in plastic and reconstructive surgery at Northwestern University. She earned her MD/PhD in Biomedical Engineering from Emory and the Georgia Institute of Technology in 2010 with a focus on bio-inspired interfaces for vascular grafts. For the past several years, she has performed numerous studies evaluating bioactive and 3D printed materials in musculoskeletal defects in animal models and has clinical expertise in treating patients needing major reconstructive surgery. Dr. Jordan will discuss the potential for 3D-printing to solve complex, functional, reconstructive problems, particularly in the face and hands.
