Bio for Caleb Steffen, M.D.

Director of Plastic, Reconstructive, and Aesthetic Surgery

Dr. Steffen, wife and their children reside in the Jefferson City area.

Medicine has always been a calling for Dr. Steffen. He says, “I have wanted to be a physician for as long as I can remember.  I’ve always liked science, but the human element was the real draw.  I believe God has created every person uniquely valuable. I try to affirm that belief through treating my patients with kindness and compassion. To sum it up, I chose medicine because I want to help care for people, ease suffering, and improve lives.”

He chose plastic and reconstructive surgery because he has “always been so inspired by the way plastic surgeons help and restore patients in so many different ways. There is no specific body part or organ system which defines plastic surgery.  Plastic surgery is all about the optimization of form and function.   Whether patients have congenital differences, breast cancer, carpal tunnel syndrome, or traumatic wounds, plastic surgeons have been trained to help restore them from head to toe. From skin grafts to microsurgery, we have been pioneers in surgical advancement. With my affinity for the artistic and attention detail, I knew that Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery would be a great fit for me as well. It really has been! I have had the pleasure of providing reconstructive and aesthetic surgery for people from head to toe. In my training, I have specialized in breast reconstruction, microsurgery, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery of the face and body, and surgery of the hand and upper extremity. The ability to help people of all ages and all walks of life is truly rewarding. Just one part of that is helping people feel better about their appearance. It’s especially rewarding to help close difficult wounds, fix dysfunctional hands, or repair bodies damaged by trauma or cancer.”

Dr. Steffen says his Christian faith is the core of his family values. He adds,  “I do my best to live by the Golden Rule, treating others the way I would want to be treated.”
