Resources for Patients

We pledge wholehearted support to you

The quality of our patients' lives and long-term outcomes are important to us.

We integrate training, research, and technology with clinical care, using the most advanced technology available to help us. We seek out and provide the treatment that is best suited to your diagnosis and individual situation. We are also committed to developing and evaluating innovative treatments; whenever appropriate, you will be offered the opportunity to participate in clinical trials and research studies of promising new therapies.

Communication is important. We listen to patient's concerns, answer all questions, and include family members in the process as requested. Throughout and after treatment at Stanford Health Care and Stanford Children's Health, we encourage you to maintain close contact with your primary care and referring doctors.

While your best starting place to learn about Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery will be to ask your doctor or medical service provider, we also encourage you to become a more educated patient by visiting the resources below.
