Ethan E. Larson, MD

Assistant Professor, (Clinical Scholar Track)

Dr. Larson performs all aspects of plastic surgery, including reconstruction of traumatic, oncologic or surgical defects, as well as breast reduction, body contouring and cosmetic surgery. Dr. Larson has special expertise in microsurgical reconstructive treatment options for patients, including breast reconstruction following mastectomy. He is one of the few surgeons in Southern Arizona to offer microsurgical breast reconstruction with free DIEP Flap or Deep Inferior Epigastric Perforator Flap, which uses skin, tissue and blood vessels taken from the patient’s abdomen to form a new breast, while preserving the abdominal muscle.  Dr. Larson’s advanced skills in microsurgery allow Southern Arizona patients to explore additional options in reconstruction, especially women with breast cancer. A native of Tucson, Dr. Larson attended the University of Arizona, graduating summa cum laude with degrees in both microbiology and psychology. He was the senior student of the year and a NASA space grant research fellow. He attended the UA College of Medicine as a Dean’s Scholar. Dr. Larson completed his internship and residency in plastic surgery at Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. He received fellowship training in microsurgery and complex oncologic defect reconstruction under world-famous microsurgeon, Peter Neligan, MD, at the University of Washington in Seattle.
