The Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery program at Stanford University was founded in 1965 by Dr. Robert A. Chase, MD. Nearly half a century later the division continues to thrive due to the work of our dedicated team of faculty, residents, fellows, and staff.
Patients who come to Stanford for plastic and reconstructive surgery have had their lives constrained or disrupted by everything from congenital conditions to trauma to severe illness or cancer. To their great relief, they find surgeons here who can perform the full range of procedures. Because we bring a skill set to the operating room that is as broad and deep as anywhere in the world, surgeons in the Division of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery consistently restore and enrich our patients' lives.
