Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

As part of a world-renowned academic medical center, the Massachusetts General Hospital Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery offers leading-edge procedures to help patients look and feel their best. Our team is highly skilled in providing comprehensive cosmetic services and reconstructive procedures with safe, successful outcomes. We now see patients at the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care in Danvers, MA.

Led by Jason Cooper, MD, the Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery Service at the Danvers facility is a multidisciplinary program providing the highest caliber care in a convenient location. Patients receive comprehensive outpatient care that does not require an overnight stay in a hospital. Services are performed in a state-of-the-art surgery center where patients enjoy a quiet setting with private spaces, allowing for discretion and peace of mind during pre- and post-operative care. 

In addition to the Mass General/North Shore Center for Outpatient Care in Danvers, Dr. Cooper also practices at Mass General’s main campus in Boston. With both suburban and downtown locations, Dr. Cooper is able to provide patients throughout the Boston area with exceptional care that is easily accessible. Dr. Cooper’s practices are staffed by highly skilled medical professionals who work together to share ideas and views on both cosmetic and reconstructive procedures. This collaboration allows them to offer the high quality, personalized care that is a hallmark of Massachusetts General Hospital.
