About the Division
THE RESOURCES OF THE STANFORD UNIVERSITY MEDICAL CENTER COMBINED WITH THE PERSONAL ATTENTION OF THE ENTIRE STANFORD FAMILY.
Visit the Division of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and you'll get to know the members of our team, from our faculty surgeons and researchers to administrators in our Division office, to support staff in our clinics and labs.
Our Division is also part of a larger family: We are one of seven divisions of the Department of Surgery, which is part of the School of Medicine—one of the seven schools that comprise Stanford University.
We are also a part of Stanford University Medical Center, which includes the Medical School, Stanford Hospital and Clinics, and the Lucile Packard Children's Hospital.
When you meet a member of our Division, you can expect the same personal care each of us would want for our own family members and you can feel confident that the resources of Stanford stand behind it.
THE SILICON VALLEY AND SAN FRANCISCO BAY AREA
Stanford is situated in the heart of Silicon Valley and the San Francisco Bay Area. This provides for a dynamic environment filled with individuals who may be associated with Stanford University, or the computer, tech, and biotech industries. The area around Stanford is highly desirable with an outstanding public school system and a very robust housing market. The Bay Area offers something for everyone, and has great cultural diversity. San Francisco is also a short drive away, and affords a thriving night-life, restaurants, the opera, symphony, Fisherman’s Wharf, the Golden Gate Bridge, and Golden Gate Park. There are plenty of activities on Stanford University’s campus, but there are also plenty of activities in the surrounding area that include hiking, biking, beach activities, professional sporting events (basketball, football, hockey), fishing, camping, golfing, swimming, rock climbing, boating, surfing, and more. Opportunities for winter sports including snow skiing is also within a 3-hour drive. Life at Stanford is simply unparalleled.
