Message from the Chair


It is with great pleasure that I welcome you to the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Schulich School of Medicine & Dentistry, Western University. Surgery at Western, and in particular, Plastic Surgery, has a rich and historic tradition of excellence. Our Division was founded in 1959 by Dr. Robert McFarlane. Throughout the history of our Division, we have been blessed with talented surgeons who have not only been outstanding clinicians, but leaders in the field and excellent educators. The bedrock of our Division is the plastic surgery training program at Western. We strive to provide a thorough clinical experience to our students, residents and fellows, and our program has long been regarded as one of the best in Canada. We provide expertise and research opportunities in hand surgery, reconstructive microsurgery, breast surgery, adult and paediatric craniofacial surgery, burn care, peripheral nerve surgery, aesthetic surgery, wound healing, lower extremity reconstruction, and cutaneous malignancies. We encourage you to browse this website. For more updates, follow us on Facebook and Instagram.
