Bio

Richard Klein, MD, MPH, FACS, is chief of the Orlando Health Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery Institute. He is board certified by and a diplomate of the American Board of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. 

Dr. Klein received his medical and public health degrees from Tufts University School of Medicine in Boston. He trained in general surgery at the University of Pittsburgh Medical Center, and completed a four-year research fellowship in trauma and burn surgery. He then completed a residency in reconstructive surgery at the University of Michigan School of Medicine in Ann Arbor and was named chief administrative resident. As a research fellow at UM, he received a prestigious five-year research grant from the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute at the National Institutes of Health. 

After receiving specialized training in Paris, he performed the first vascularized lymph node transfer for the treatment of lymphedema in the state of Florida. He is among a dozen surgeons in the country performing this procedure on a regular basis.

Dr. Klein specializes in advanced and complex reconstructive surgery procedures of the head and neck, breast, body and limbs. His area of expertise is in microvascular perforator flap reconstruction for the entire body after cancer or trauma, as well as lymph node transfers for lymphedema. He also is the assistant professor of plastic surgery at University of Central Florida College of Medicine and clinical assistant professor of surgery at Florida State University College of Medicine in Orlando.


I love sports and I felt like that ability was going to be taken away with the lymphedema I had following breast cancer. Thanks to Orlando Health, my arm that was swollen and achy is back to normal and I’m able to swing a golf club again. Find out how Orlando Health helped me.
