Dr. Richard L. Agag
Dr. Richard L. Agag is a plastic and reconstructive surgeon and the Chief of the Division Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Rutgers Robert Wood Johnson Medical School. Dr. Agag completed his general surgery and plastic surgery training at Rutgers New Jersey Medical School. He then continued his training at the University of Pennsylvania where he did a fellowship in microsurgical reconstruction. In 2010 Dr. Agag was named the Jerome P. Webster Fellow by the non-profit organization ReSurge International (formerly Interplast). The fellowship, granted to just one newly trained plastic surgeon annually, gave him the opportunity to spend a year providing reconstructive surgeries including cleft lip and palate, hand surgery, and burn reconstruction to children in developing countries in Africa, Asia, and South America. During this time he not only had the privilege to care for a myriad of children, he also had the opportunity to spend time working, sharing, and learning from plastic surgeons in these countries. Dr. Agag has extensive experience in gender affirmation surgery. Together with the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive surgery, he has worked to develop a gender affirmation surgery program providing care to patients in NJ and surrounding areas. Dr. Richard L. Agag is board certified by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.
