Dr. Hartrampf has dedicated his life to Plastic Surgery helping thousands of women with breast cancer using a technique he invented nearly 50 years ago, the TRAM Flap, to reconstruct a woman’s breast with a simultaneous abdominoplasty or “tummy tuck”. Furthermore, by teaching this technique to thousands of plastic surgeons around the world through the Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (SESPRS), Dr Hartrampf has helped hundreds of thousands of women feel better about themselves after breast cancer.
Dr. Hartrampf has generously and selflessly given to his patients and his students in Plastic Surgery. In order to recognize a true pioneer, the SESPRS has set up a Hartrampf Chair Fund in Plastic Surgery. The Hartrampf Chair Fund has been established to collect funds, which will eventually be used to establish a chair in plastic surgery in Dr. Hartrampf’s name, intended to support a plastic surgeon interested in breast reconstruction and research.
