About Our Practice
Newly established Pediatrix® Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of Savannah provides innovative pediatric plastic and craniofacial surgical services to babies, children and adolescents in the Greater Savannah area, east Georgia and South Carolina.
Led by pediatric plastic and cranio-maxillofacial surgeon Anand R. Kumar, M.D., FACS, FAAP, the practice is dedicated to delivering high-quality care to restore form and function with natural-looking results, giving patients confidence to lead a healthy, happy, productive life.
Dr. Kumar is highly trained in cranial vault remodeling and reconstruction (VAULT surgery), which involves reshaping cranial bones that have prematurely fused, restricting brain growth. The condition, called pediatric craniosynostosis, also causes an abnormal head shape, which is usually the first indication of a problem.
Dr. Kumar established the center for facial skeletal surgery and the center for pediatric craniofacial surgery at The Johns Hopkins Hospital and Rainbow Babies and Children’s Hospital, respectively, with an emphasis on multidisciplinary care for cleft and craniodentofacial anomalies.
In addition to correcting craniosynostosis through VAULT surgery, Pediatrix Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery of Savannah focuses on cleft and craniofacial surgeries, including:
- Cleft lip and palate repair.
- Correction of hypertelorism (wide eyes).
- Orthognathic (jaw) surgery to correct severe malocclusion from a misaligned jaw.
- Pediatric and adolescent facial skeletal deformities (hemifacial microsomia, Treacher Collins syndrome, Pierre Robin sequence) with airway obstruction using traditional orthognathic surgery and distraction osteogenesis.
- Microtia reconstruction or total ear reconstruction using the patient’s tissue.

We look forward to serving your family.
"Office was beautifully decorated and super clean. Once called back I had the pleasure of meeting Dr. Kumar. He was very professional, kind, had a sense of humor, and I felt at ease the entire time we discussed my daughter’s condition. He was very thorough and spent a great amount of time discussing everything with me and made sure I did not have any further questions before leaving. You can tell that he genuinely cares for his patients and wants the best for them."Patient Testimonial December 2021
