Sarah Lyon, MD

Plastic Surgery Resident

Sarah was drawn to plastic surgery for the innovation, collaboration, and diversity of patient demographics associated with the field. Her hometown is Larchmont, New York, and she went to Columbia University for undergraduate. She landed in the Midwest for medical school at the University of Chicago Pritzker School of Medicine. At UW, she is taking a research year to focus on the effect of radiation on skin, Parry-Romberg disease, and microsurgical education. After residency, she will pursue a fellowship and academic career, but she is unsure which fellowship will pique her interest in the second half of residency.
