The Buncke Clinic


Welcome to The Buncke Clinic, an Institute for Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, Hand Surgery, and Microsurgery. Our site is designed to provide in-depth information for trained medical and scientific practitioners, as well as general information for non-trained persons and health care consumers. We also invite you to visit our affiliated website "" for more information.

We celebrate over 40 years of plastic and reconstructive surgical excellence. The Buncke Clinic maintains its outstanding tradition as a top tertiary referral center for the most complex reconstructive plastic and microsurgical cases. Patients world-wide have been treated at the Clinic with the most advanced techniques by our highly specialized and internationally recognized surgeons. Our goal is to deliver the highest quality of patient care through a team approach.

The Buncke Clinic was founded at the Davies Medical Center in San Francisco in 1970. Since that time over two hundred clinical and research fellows and residents have trained here; twenty-seven have subsequently become plastic surgery department chairmen or co-chairmen at leading medical and research facilities around the world. Over 400 articles, books, and chapters have been published from our service, and hundreds of scientific papers presented globally. We continue to attract the best and brightest plastic surgeons nationally and internationally to teach, train, and lead.
