    Physician Information

    Dr. Lisa Schneider is a specialist trained in microsurgical reconstruction of all areas of the body in addition to hand and cosmetic surgery. A longtime advocate of women’s health issues, she has a particular interest in breast reconstruction, both using implants and the body’s own tissue for free flap DIEP reconstruction. Using the body’s own tissue or “autologous” reconstruction uses microsurgical techniques to move tissue from the abdomen (DIEP flap) and other areas of the body to create a new breast. Dr. Lisa Schneider is certified in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery by the American Board of Plastic Surgery.

    Dr. Schneider trained in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the Institute for Reconstructive Plastic Surgery (IRPS) at New York University Langone Medical Center and Bellevue Hospital Center, where she received training from international experts in all aspects of plastic surgery, including aesthetic, reconstruction, hand and microsurgery. She was one of an elite group chosen for a directed six-year training that combined general and plastic surgery, the most selective residency category in the United States. She pursued additional training at IRPS in microsurgical reconstruction in order to maximize her ability to reconstruct the most challenging surgical problems.

    She attended medical school at the Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons where she was selected to be a member of the prestigious Alpha Omega Alpha Honor Society. Because of her dedication to compassionate patient care, she was selected for the Gold Humanism Honor Society. She was also selected for additional awards based on exceptional academic achievement, including the Glasgow-Rubin Achievement Award, the Markowitz Endowment for Scholars and the Herbert J. Bartelstone Award.

    As an undergraduate, she attended Yale University, where she graduated with a Summa Cum Laude degree in Humanities and was inducted into the Phi Beta Kappa Society. She was awarded the Nicholas Poulin Cup, given to the woman with the highest GPA in the graduating class of Pierson College, and a Howard Hughes Institute Fellowship for teaching. She was co-coordinator of the sexual assault counseling service for Yale University. She traveled to both Kenya and India to perform humanitarian work.
