Lee Alkureishi, M.D.

Lee Alkureishi, M.D., is a board-certified craniofacial and pediatric plastic surgeon. Dr. Alkureishi was born and raised in Scotland, where he completed his early medical training at the University of Glasgow. He completed his residency in plastic surgery at the University of Chicago, followed by a pediatric and craniofacial surgery fellowship at NorthShore University Health System and Shriners Hospitals for Children — Chicago. From the minute he walked through the door, Dr. Alkureishi felt that Shriners Hospital was going to be a perfect fit, and was delighted to be able to formally join the team at the end of his fellowship.

His areas of interest include cleft lip and palate, orthognathic (jaw) surgery, ear reconstruction and otoplasty, and microsurgery. His training includes extensive experience in free tissue transfer, burn reconstruction and scar revision, and tissue expansion for congenital defects.

Dr. Alkureishi lives in the Chicagoland area. His love of pediatric medicine runs in the family, and his wife is a pediatrician. He is a member of the American Cleft Palate Association and a candidate member of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.
