Michael Desvigne

Dr. Michael N. Desvigne is a true plastic and reconstructive surgeon who has chosen to dedicate his expertise to reconstructive surgery, specifically wound reconstruction.  Dr, Desvigne believes performing reconstructive surgery has made him a better wound healing clinician and managing complex wounds has made him a better reconstructive surgeon.  Dr. Desvigne brings a wealth of experience from a variety of disciplines.  He is board certified in plastic surgery, general surgery, wound care and hyperbaric medicine. With this quadruple certification he approaches each wound problem with a staircase approach including surgical and nonsurgical solutions.   In 2018 Dr. Desvigne brought his cosmetic expertise to the wound reconstructive world where he would perform most cosmetic procedures under local anesthesia and or “twilight” to minimize the risks of general anesthesia. He has now added this approach to his wound reconstructive surgery practice, a term he coined as “Outpatient Wound Reconstruction” (OWR) optimizing outcomes while minimizing risk.

Dr. Desvigne is a fellow of the American College of Surgeons (ACS). He is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery (ASPS), the American Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS) and the Arizona Society of Plastic Surgeons. He is also a member of the American Academy of Wound Specialists, Wound Healing Society and the Undersea and Hyperbaric Medical Society.  He is a world-renowned lecturer and consultant in wound healing technologies. He has created multiple programs for inpatient and outpatient centers of excellence in wound care, with a focus on the continuum of care.

In his spare time, Dr. Desvigne refuels by running, swimming, boating, cooking, reading, and writing, and social entrepreneurism. He enjoys giving back to the community by performing humanitarian missions alongside his wife.
