Newsmakers — Dr. Rod Rohrich

Dr. Rod Rohrich, chairman of plastic surgery at UT Southwestern and immediate past president of the American Society of Plastic Surgery, has been named editor of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (PRS), the official medical journal of the ASPS. He is the sixth editor in the almost 60-year history of the journal and will serve for a minimum of six years.

Dr. Rohrich has served on the editorial staff of PRS since 1992 and was instrumental in launching the online version of the journal, as well as developing the cosmetic and continuing medical education sections of PRS.

As editor, Dr. Rohrich said he hopes to increase readership, expand physicians' use of the online version and make PRS' online version easier to navigate.
