Nicklaus Children’s Pediatric Specialists Director, Operating Room 

Dr. Perlyn is an attending plastic surgeon within the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital and also serves as the director of the Operating Room for Nicklaus Children’s Pediatric Specialists. In addition, he is an assistant professor and chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at Florida International University’s Herbert Wertheim College of Medicine. Dr. Perlyn is also an elected active fellow of the American Association of Plastic Surgeons. As a pediatric plastic surgeon, his practice is dedicated solely to caring for children and young adults with congenital or acquired anomalies and injuries. His particular interests are in craniofacial surgery, vascular anomalies and pigmented lesions of the skin.

After receiving his undergraduate degree in English literature from Northwestern University, Dr. Perlyn attended medical school at the University of Miami where he graduated with honors. He then completed his general surgery and plastic surgery residencies at Washington University/Barnes-Jewish Hospital in Saint Louis, one of the country’s oldest and most established plastic surgery training programs. During his residency, Dr. Perlyn was the recipient of an American College of Surgeons Fellowship, allowing him to spend three years at the University of Oxford in England completing a doctorate degree in craniofacial molecular biology. While at Oxford, Dr. Perlyn studied why children are born with particular facial birth defects, and as a result of his efforts, he received several national and international awards. He has published numerous scientific papers and articles, as well as lectured nationally and internationally. Following the completion of his plastic surgery training, Dr. Perlyn went on to study craniofacial and pediatric plastic surgery as a fellow under the tutelage of Dr. Jeffrey Marsh in St. Louis.

As a Miami native, Dr. Perlyn enjoys being back in South Florida and working at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital as part of the plastic surgery team. When not at the hospital, he is with his family or participating in his interests including travel, photography and gardening.

Dr. Perlyn is employed by Nicklaus Children’s Pediatric Specialists, the multispecialty group practice of Nicklaus Children’s Health System. He sees patients at the Nicklaus Children’s Hospital main campus, Nicklaus Children’s Aventura Care Center, Nicklaus Children's Coconut Creek Care Center and Nicklaus Children’s West  Kendall Outpatient Center.

The Division of Pediatric Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Nicklaus Children’s Hospital offers comprehensive care for children with a full range of traumatic and congenital conditions. From the management of hand and upper extremity trauma and congenital anomalies, to the reconstruction of burn and other soft tissue injuries, and treatment of various breast pathologies, the team offers consultation and treatment services tailored to each child’s individual needs. The plastic and reconstructive surgery team is also proud to be part of the Nicklaus Children’s Craniofacial Center care team, participating in multidisciplinary care clinics to maximize convenience for families of children with facial differences, including cleft lip and palate, ear anomalies and craniosynostosis.
