Clinical Assistant Professor, Surgery - Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery
Subhro K. Sen, MD, Clinical Assistant Professor in the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, graduated from Northwestern University with a degree in biomedical engineering. He went on to receive his medical degree from the Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine. After medical school, he completed a yearlong peripheral nerve research fellowship under Dr. Susan Mackinnon at the Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis. He received his postgraduate training in general surgery at Indiana University, followed by plastic and reconstructive surgery at Johns Hopkins University. He completed his training with a hand and upper extremity surgery fellowship at Stanford University.

Dr. Sen’s general clinical interests are in reconstructive surgery, microvascular surgery, and hand and upper extremity surgery. His practice includes: post-traumatic extremity reconstruction; post-oncologic reconstruction of the head and neck, trunk and extremities; perforator flap surgery; and melanoma surgery. He is also leading the effort to develop a comprehensive Wound and Limb Salvage Center at Stanford. As a hand surgeon in the Robert A. Chase Hand and Upper Limb Center, he has interests in hand trauma, degenerative conditions, peripheral nerve injuries, and congenital hand differences.

In addition to his clinical practice, Dr. Sen is involved in research, publication, and teaching. His peer-reviewed research includes studies on peripheral nerve regeneration, and he has authored a number of book chapters on a variety of hand surgery topics. He currently reviews manuscripts submitted for publication in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Annals of Plastic Surgery. Dr. Sen is double board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and the American Board of Surgery. He is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery, and is a candidate member of the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the American Association for Hand Surgery.
