Dr. Sullivan received a BS degree in Biomedical Engineering from Tulane University in 1987 and an MD from Louisiana State University Health Sciences Center in 1991. Within the field of microsurgery he has made major practical surgical advances. His particular area of focus is breast reconstruction utilizing the body’s own tissue. These state-of-the-art techniques, referred to as Perforator Flaps, now represent the leading choice in breast reconstruction. Dr. Sullivan, in collaboration with Frank J. DellaCroce, MD, FACS, has pioneered several of these revolutionary breast reconstructive techniques, including Bilateral Simultaneous GAP and Hip flap Reconstruction, Stacked Flap (Stacked DIEP, Stacked Hip flaps), Extended DIEP Flaps, Single Stage Composite Breast Reconstruction (Single Stage DIEP flap with Implant), Body Lift Flap, and Endoscopic Assisted DIEP Flap breast Reconstruction. The groundbreaking advances in breast reconstruction that Dr. Sullivan has developed have distinguished him as one of the most sought after microsurgeons in the world. Women from across the United States, Canada, Europe and Australia travel to New Orleans to seek his dedicated and compassionate approach to the most personal of women’s health issues. He is a Fellow of the American College of Surgeons and is a member of numerous societies including the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery, the American Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, as well as the Louisiana Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and the New Orleans Surgical Society.
