Historical Note

Historical Statement

The members of an informal organization of plastic surgeons founded the New York Regional Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (NYRSPS) in 1960. The goal of the organization was to increase and extend the knowledge of plastic surgery, reconstructive surgery, and tissue transplantation at monthly meetings. The organization also sought to foster personal and professional relationships among the members. The NYRSPS played a prominent role in the creation of a reconstructive and plastic surgery section within the New York Academy of Medicine in 1966. As of 2011, the society exists as the New York Regional Society of Plastic Surgeons.
