Timothy A. Miller, M.D. has spent nearly four decades training doctors and surgeons at the David Geffen School of Medicine at UCLA, where he is now Chief of the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and a fully tenured professor. He has published over ninety scholarly articles and has written more than forty textbook chapters. He has served on the Board of Directors for the American Board of Plastic Surgery, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, and the Plastic Surgery Education Foundation. He was also the Director of the American Society of Plastic Surgery from 1991 to 1997. He served during Vietnam (1965-1966) and was awarded the Bronze Star. From 1973 to 2006 he served as the Chief of Plastic Surgery at the West Los Angeles Veterans Administration Medical Center where he still maintains a research laboratory. He continues to serve his country by founding Operation Mend- a unique program between Brooke Army Medical Center and the Ronald Regan Medical Center that provides reconstructive plastic surgery for US military wounded in Iraq and Afghanistan.

We have integrated Faculty Profiles with the U.S. National Library of Medicine's MeSH terms. For every publication added to a profile, we pull its MeSH terms and display it here. This enhancement allows you to search for research themes of our faculty members.
Click on any of the terms below to see additional researchers with similar keywords.
MeSH Vocabulary includes four types of terms:
Over 26,000 MeSH headings (also called "main headings" or "descriptors" represents concepts found in the biomedical literature
Subheadings - (also called qualifiers) are attached to MeSH headings to describe a specific aspect of a concept.
Supplementary Concept Records are over 200,000 terms in a separate thesaurus from the Medical Subject Headings. These are primarily substance terms, but also include some protocols and rare desease terms. These terms are updated weekly.
Publication Characteristics or (Publication Types) describe the type of publication being indexed; i.e., what the item is, not what the article is about.
