Dr. Bartlett is well known for his work in facial plastic surgery in children and adults, treating them for both reconstructive and cosmetic concerns. In his reconstructive work, Dr. Bartlett treats patients with facial trauma, facial palsy, congenital abnormalities and defects of the face following skin cancer surgery.

In cosmetic surgery, he has special interests in the face and neck, concentrating on nasal, eyelid and facial rejuvenation procedures. In addition to surgical treatments, Dr. Bartlett uses injectables and fillers, laser resurfacing, and state-of-the art implant materials. By combining his expertise in infant and adult reconstruction with aesthetic procedures, he is able to marry form and function in restoration.

He is also the holder of the Peter Randall Endowed Chair in Pediatric Plastic Surgery and of the Friends of Brian Endowed Chair in Pediatric & Reconstructive Surgery at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia.

His research is directed to learning the effects of aging on the structure of the face and refining methods of facial reconstruction. His other research interests include growth and development of the face and implant materials. He is widely published in specialty journals and books.

Dr. Bartlett lectures worldwide and is a member of prestigious plastic surgery societies such as the American Association of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgeons and the International Society of Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, of which he is a former President.

He is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons and the American Academy of Pediatrics. Additionally, he is the Section Editor in Pediatric / Craniofacial for Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, the most widely read journal in the specialty. Each year Bartlett travels to Poland in a volunteer capacity where he performs surgery and trains Polish physicians in methods of facial reconstruction for children and adults.

Dr. Bartlett completed his pre-medical studies at Weber State College in Utah and his medical studies at Washington University School of Medicine in St. Louis, Missouri. He interned and did his surgical and plastic surgery residencies at Massachusetts General Hospital in Boston.

At Harvard University, he was a research fellow in surgical immunology and later a craniomaxillofacial and pediatric fellow at the University of Pennsylvania Medical Center and Children's Hospital of Philadelphia. He is board certified in Plastic Surgery.

History of the Kazanjian Lecture
