Since joining the Division of Plastic Surgery, Dr. Flores works predominantly at Riley Hospital for Children, specifically on craniofacial injuries and anomalies. He also has interests in cosmetic surgery.


Research Interests: Dr. Flores' laboratory uses virtual 3-dimensional digital models of the human body to create surgical simulations of conceptually complex surgical procedures. These simulations will serve as a resource for practicing and training surgeons to help improve their intraoperative learning process and skills. This research has the potential to greatly impact patient safety in a positive manner.
