- Microvascular reconstruction
- Lower-extremity reconstruction
- Breast surgery and reconstruction

Dr. Chavanon completed medical school at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine and went on to a six-year residency in plastic surgery at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, where he also became the chief resident in plastic surgery. He also completed a fellowship in hand surgery and microsurgery at the University of Miami Health System in Miami, FL.
“I’m thrilled to be able to join the amazing team of surgeons at Orlando Health,” said Dr. Chavanon. “It will be exciting to partner with my new colleagues to and bring our expertise together to innovate treatment that will help patients in this community.”
Dr. Chavanon is the newest member of the Orlando Health ARSI team. He will be joined by several experienced plastic surgeons over the next few months to be able to serve the growing number of patients seeking aesthetic and reconstructive surgery in the region.
“We’re very excited about the program we’re building here at Orlando Health to provide our patients the premier reconstructive surgery team anywhere in Florida,” said Kenneth Lee, MD, chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at Orlando Health. “With the amount of high-level fellowship training and experience in microsurgery we have joining us, I have no doubt that we’ll be able to serve this community with the most cutting-edge surgery techniques.”
