Jeffrey Fialkov MD, MSc, FRCSC , is Head of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre and an associate professor in the Department of Surgery with cross-appointment to the Institute of Biomedical Engineering at The University of Toronto. As a fellowship trained craniomaxillofacial surgeon, his clinical focus encompasses the reconstruction of post-traumatic, congenital and post-ablative facial deformities with a special interest in secondary traumatic deformities, adult cleft surgery and facial aesthetic surgery. As part of the University of Toronto teaching faculty, he provides post-graduate supervision in adult craniofacial surgery to fellowship trainees from Canada, the United States, Europe and the Middle East.

Dr. Fialkov is also an associate scientist in the Holland Bone and Joint Research Program at Sunnybrook Health Sciences Centre. His research focus is on craniomaxillofacial reconstructive techniques and translational technologies, with an emphasis on biomechanics using cadaveric and in silico modelling. His particular interest in craniofacial trauma, facial reconstruction and craniomaxillofacial biomechanics has led to the publication of numerous peer-reviewed articles and book-chapters on the subject. In addition, his research interests have led to a number of innovations in the field including novel surgical techniques and technological innovations such as a novel patented osteosynthetic system.
