Jonathan Winograd was born in Lynn, Massachusetts in 1966. He grew up in Marblehead and graduated from Saint John’s Preparatory School as salutatorian in 1984. He attended Harvard College and graduated Magna Cum Laude in Biology in 1988, and Harvard Medical School, earning his medical degree in 1992. He then entered a combined general surgery/plastic surgery residency at Johns Hopkins Hospital and the University of Maryland/Shock Trauma Center in Baltimore, Maryland. During that time, he was a research fellow under the mentorship of Dr. Paul Manson and Dr. Craig Vander Kolk, both internationally renowned craniofacial surgeons, and Dr. Gregg Semenza, a molecular biologist and recipient of the Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine in 2019. Dr. Winograd then completed a fellowship in Hand and Microsurgery at Washington University in Saint Louis led by Dr. Susan Mackinnon, an internationally recognized expert in Peripheral Nerve Surgery.
Dr. Winograd joined the staff of the MGH and Shriners Hospital for Children in 2001. He has an active clinical practice which encompasses the whole spectrum of plastic and reconstructive surgery, including patients with surgical problems of the breast and body, the hand and upper and lower extremities, and cosmetic procedures. He has developed a particular focus on reconstructive problems of the peripheral nervous system, such as brachial plexus injuries, thoracic outlet syndrome, and nerve compressions including carpal tunnel and cubital tunnel syndromes. These also include microsurgical nerve reconstruction after nerve injuries of the extremities and other regions of the body as well as the surgical treatment of chronically painful conditions such as neuropathy or nerve injuries known as neuromas. He is the Director of an active basic science translational research program as well as a clinical research program aimed at improving outcomes after peripheral nerve injuries, and he is the recipient of multiple grant awards from the Consortium for Improving Medicine with Innovation and Technology (a consortium comprised of leading academic scientists and clinicians from MIT, MGH and other Boston area institutions), the DOD, and the NIH. He is the current President of the Massachusetts Society of Plastic Surgeons and is the Secretary and an Executive Board member of the American Society of Peripheral Nerve. He has offices in Boston and Danvers.
