Biography

Lino F. Miele is currently an independent resident in the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh. He received his undergraduate degrees in Chemistry and Italian from the University of Pittsburgh and a Master of Science in Biological Sciences from Drexel University. He attended Jefferson Medical College of Thomas Jefferson University where he received his Medical Degree. He then completed his general surgery training at The Lankenau Medical Center and has been board certified by the American Board of Surgery since 2013. During his general surgery training he was a recipient of a Ruth L. Kirchstein National Research Service Award at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, Harvard Medical School where he was mentored by Drs. Steven J. Mentzer, MD, FACS and Dennis P. Orgill, MD, PhD, FACS. He investigated morphologic microcirculatory adaptations to inflammation, micromechanical forces and physiologic stress. Specifically, he studied the intussusceptive angiogenic response to perturbation in microcirculatory flow, which led to the implementation of traffic engineering principles to map microcirculatory flow in intravital microscopy. As a visiting Research Fellow at Johannes Gutenberg Universität, Mainz, Germany, under the auspices of Moritz Konerding, MD, he investigated morphologic microcirculatory adaptations to static tensile forces utilizing scanning electron microscopy of corrosion casts. His work was honored with the cover image in the October 2011 issue of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. 

Since 2012, Dr. Miele has been training in the Department of Plastic Surgery at the University of Pittsburgh and is pursuing interests in 3-D stereophotogrammetric volume analysis in plastic surgery. His clinical interests include reconstructive microsurgery of the breast and extremities as well as craniofacial surgery.

Dr. Miele is a member of the American College of Surgeons, the American Society of Plastic Surgery, the Plastic Surgery Research Council, the American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery, the American Society of Maxillofacial Surgery and the Association for Academic Surgery.
