He will serve as the chief of plastic surgery at Froedtert Hospital, and will also see patients at Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin.

Dr. Havlik comes to MCW from the Indiana University School of Medicine in Indianapolis, where he serves as the chief of the division of plastic surgery, and is the James J.

He is also the director of the cleft and craniofacial surgery program and director of pediatric plastic surgery at the James Whitcomb Riley Hospital for Children in Indianapolis.

Additionally, Dr. Havlik is active in the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, American Cleft Palate-Craniofacial Association, American College of Surgeons, American Surgical Association, American Medical Association, American Academy of Pediatrics, and the Plastic Surgery Educational Foundation.

The George J. Korkos, M.D. Professor in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery was established in 2006 to provide a sustainable and stable source of funds to educate the next generation of plastic and reconstructive surgeons.

Joseph E. Kerschner, M.D., executive vice president and dean of MCW’s medical school, cited Dr. Havlik’s significant research and clinical experience as key factors in his appointment.

“Dr. Havlick is a leader in the field of plastic surgery, with significant institutional administrative leadership experience, and we look forward to him joining MCW,” Dr. Kerschner said.

Dr. Havlik graduated from the University of Michigan in 1979 and received his M.D. degree from Yale University School of Medicine in 1984. He did his internship and residency in general surgery at Yale-New Haven Hospital, serving as chief resident from 1988-1989.

He completed a hand and microvascular fellowship at Beth Israel Hospital in Boston, Mass., and went on to complete a craniofacial and pediatric plastic surgery fellowship at Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.
