  • Professor of Surgery, Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, School of Medicine


Dr. Reid Mueller is an Associate Professor and plastic surgeon at OHSU and Doernbecher Children's Hospital. Prior to arriving to OHSU, Dr. Mueller trained at the University of California, San Fransciso where he completed surgical residencies in both general surgery and plastic and reconstructive surgery. During his training he did pioneering research into the biology of scarring in a effort to understand and reduce scars for his patients.

Dr. Mueller has special interest in facial cosmetic surgery, body contouring, breast surgery and breast reconstruction. He has used his unique knowledge of how the body heals to develop minimal scar techniques now adopted around the world. Dr. Mueller is one of the pioneers in endoscopic surgery in the United States, using surgical telescopes to preform surgery with small hidden incisions, where previously a much larger disfiguring incision was needed.
