Because of his expertise in the field of reconstructive microsurgery, his practice is the referring destination for very complex reconstructive challenges. Dr. Sullivan is a graduate of Louisiana State University Health Science Center and of the Hospital's General Surgery internship program. He completed residencies in both General Surgery and Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at LSU before founding the Center for Restorative Breast Surgery. 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.
