Meet our Pediatric Plastic Surgeon

"I feel truly blessed to be joining Children's Hospital and look forward to serving the families of Knoxville in East Tennessee for any plastic surgery or craniofacial needs."

Justin Daggett, MD

Dr. Daggett is employed at East Tennessee Children’s hospital where he is the director of pediatric plastic and craniofacial surgery. Dr. Daggett's clinical interests focus on children born with congenital deformities, including orofacial clefts and craniofacial anomalies as well as anomalies of the hand.  His research interests are in the practical application of 3D printing and scanning in improving patient outcomes.

Prior to joining ETCH, Dr. Daggett served several years as a missionary surgeon in Kenya where he co-directed the first multidisciplinary cleft team in east Africa and served as the only craniofacial surgeon for several countries. He received his medical degree at the Case Western School of Medicine.  He then completed an integrated residency in plastic and reconstructive surgery at University of South Florida. Following his residency, he completed a fellowship in pediatric plastic and craniofacial surgery at the University of Pittsburgh and Children’s Hospital of Pittsburgh.

At East Tennessee pediatric plastic surgery, we believe that each child and family is unique and that they should be treated as the distinctive individuals they are.  For this reason we strive to get to know these children and their families in order to not just impact their care, but their actual lives and futures. We never want to forget what an incredible privilege it is to care for each of these children.
