Michael P. Grant, MD, PhD, FACS is the Paul N. Manson Distinguished Professor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the R Adams Cowley Shock Trauma Center, University of Maryland Medical Center, and Professor of Surgery, Program in Trauma, University of Maryland School of Medicine. Previously, he served as Director of Oculoplastic Surgery, Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine as well as the chief of the Eye and Orbital Trauma Center at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.
As one of the few dual-trained plastic surgeons and ophthalmologists, Dr Grant’s specializes in complex craniomaxillofacial reconstruction the facial skeleton, and soft tissue of the periorbital region. This includes eyelid reconstruction, reconstruction of the internal orbit, and lacrimal system following trauma, removal of tumors, and congenital malformations. Working closely with industry partners Dr. Grant is developing and optimizing the application of computer assisted design of patient specific (custom) implants. Dr. Grant is an internationally recognized expert in the fields of primary and secondary orbital reconstruction, computer assisted surgery, and facial aesthetic surgery.
Dr Grant’s research interests include applying innovative solutions to difficult clinical problems. He is actively engaged in the development of biomaterials for conjunctival reconstruction, to provide lining for the orbit and maintenance of the heath of the ocular surface. This approach may prove useful in correction of all types of lining deficits craniofacial reconstruction. Using the “organ on a chip” approach, these studies have been extended by developing an “eye on a chip” 3D co-culture system to investigate the dynamics of the ocular surface and investigate novel therapies for dry eye treatment. In parallel, he is investigating mechanisms of immunomodulation in corneal injury and wound healing. A separate line of investigation involves utilizing progenitor cells for regeneration of bone in the craniofacial skeleton. Finally, Dr. Grant is involved application of computer assisted, and image guided surgical techniques to make orbital reconstruction safer and more predictable for patients.
Dr Grant was selected as a trainee in the Medical Scientist Training Program at Case Western Reserve University, receiving a M.D., and Ph.D. in neurosciences. He completed the Ophthalmology residency at the Wilmer Eye Institute, Johns Hopkins Hospital, followed by a General Plastic Surgery residency in the Johns Hopkins/University of Maryland Training Program. Dr. Grant is one of only a few surgeons in the country that is board certified in both disciplines. He is a member of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons, American Society of Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery, American Academy of Ophthalmology, and a fellow of the American College of Surgeons.
