Topic: When two become one. An integrative OrthoPlastic Approach to Limb Salvage & Amputation Care 

Jenna-Lynn Senger, MD, PhD, FRCSC; Clinical Assistant Professor in the UBC Department of Surgery, Division of Plastic Surgery


Jenna-Lynn Senger is originally from Saskatoon, where she completed her medical degree at the University of Saskatchewan. During her plastic surgery residency at the University of Alberta, she additionally obtained a PhD. Her thesis used animal models to identify and establish a perioperative strategy to optimize peripheral nerve regeneration, conditioning electrical stimulation (CES). This technique is now successfully being translated to clinical practice. Jenna-Lynn has continued to remain extremely active in the basic science laboratory and plans to continue her ongoing research on neuropathic pain here in Vancouver. Upon completion of her residency, she was accepted into the prestigious microsurgical fellowship at the Ohio State University, one of the top limb salvage / advanced amputation / Military medicine programs in North America. She is passionate about collaboration between specialties with the common aim of literally “getting people on their feet again”.
