Overview
Dr. Jesse Selber is the Director of Clinical Research and an Associate Professor in the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center in Houston, Texas. A microvascular reconstructive surgeon, Dr. Selber's research involves head and neck reconstruction, breast reconstruction, microsurgery, abdominal wall reconstruction, microsurgical training, robotic-assisted reconstructive surgery, and other areas. He also has an active robotic reconstructive surgery practice in which he developed and utilizes four different types of procedures. His work -- especially with regards to robotic-assisted microsurgery -- has allowed him to be invited, to instruct and to perform surgical procedures at various national and international conferences. In addition, Dr. Selber has had over forty articles published in peer-reviewed journals and serves as a reviewer for several journals (i.e. Head and Neck Surgery, Annals of Plastic Surgery, etc.). He holds offices in multiple national plastic surgery societies including the American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery and the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, and is an Executive Board and Founding member of the Robotic Assisted Microvascular and Endoscopic Surgery society (RAMSES). World's First Scalp and Skull Transplant:Surgical teams from Houston Methodist Hospital and The University of Texas MD Anderson Cancer Center successfully transplanted, for the first time, a scalp and skull while performing kidney and pancreas transplants. The 15-hour surgery, which was conceptualized nearly four years ago, was performed at Houston Methodist Hospital by a team led by MD Anderson's Jesse C. Selber, MD and Houston Methodist's A. Osama Gaber, MD on Friday, May 22, 2015.
