Say Goodbye to Compression Garments after Dr. Cheng’s Lymphedema Microsurgery
It was honored and humbled to receive a warm welcome and be made a member of Harry Buncke Society by Drs. Gregory Buncke and Bauback Safa during my visit to the Buncke Clinic. Dr. Harry Buncke is recognized as the Father of Reconstructive Microsurgery in the US. The Buncke Clinic has been at the forefront of the advancement of reconstructive microsurgery since 1970. The faculty, fellows, and residents (some from UC San Francisco) were very interested in my lymphedema researches and outcome of my speech.
The canvas in the photo was entitled “The Opinion”. It illustrated a clinic of 84 plastic surgeons in an amphitheater discussing the repair of a childbirth deformity. I was told this portrait symbolizes the honor and passion of plastic surgeons that tirelessly seek for best solutions for the patients at Buncke Clinic.
Dr. Cheng was honored to be selected as the 2006 Godina Traveling Fellow of American Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery (the first one from Asia) and visited 13 top renowned institutes around the world.
