Clinical Responsibilities

Dr. Ernest S. Chiu is a board certified plastic surgeon who received his medical degree from Columbia University College of Physicians & Surgeons in New York. He completed his combined General Surgery residency at New York University Medical Center and Plastic Surgery residency at the Institute of Reconstructive Plastic Surgery in New York. In addition, he completed a postdoctoral research fellowship at the Skirball Biomolecular Institute and Microsurgery/Breast reconstruction fellowship at Memorial-Sloan Kettering Cancer Center also in Manhattan.

In 2004, Dr. Chiu was recruited to become an Assistant Professor of Plastic Surgery at LSU Health Sciences Center and Chief of Plastic Surgery Service at University Hospital in New Orleans. He was a Co-Founder of the Children's Hospital of New Orleans Vascular Anomalies Center. After Hurricane Katrina, he chose to remain in New Orleans to help its citizens and the medical system recover by joining the Tulane University Health Sciences Center as the Harold G. Tabb Associate Professor of Plastic Surgery & Otolaryngology and Director of Research. Later, he was appointed the William Henderson Chair in Surgery at the School of Medicine.

In 2012, Dr. Chiu returned to the NYU Langone Medical Center as the Director of the Helen & Martin Kimmel Wound Healing Center. His interests include wound repair, local/regional flap surgery, microsurgery, adipose stem cell research, tissue engineering, and vascular/bone biology. He uses an open, honest approach for plastic surgery patient care. No surgical problem is too big or small. In addition to an active clinical practice, Dr. Chiu has published extensively in the plastic surgery literature, received numerous research grants/awards, lectured worldwide, and been elected as a member of the Plastic Reconstructive Aesthetic Surgery Journal Editorial Board, American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the Plastic Surgery Research Council, and Fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
