Dr. Matthew McRae
As a plastic surgeon, my goal is to restore form and function. A loss of form and function can be due to injury, cancer, and the daily wear and tear of time.
My clinical practice is based at St. Joseph Healthcare Hamilton and I am an academic plastic surgeon at McMaster University. My educational journey to McMaster included an undergraduate degree at Cornell University, medical school and a masters degree in health sciences at Yale University, residency training in plastic surgery at the University of Toronto, and subspecialty training in hand and reconstructive microsurgery at the Buncke clinic in San Francisco.
As a tertiary referral center, we receive challenging cases from around the province. These most challenging cases tend to be in the realm of reconstructive microsurgery of the head and neck, extremities, breast, and body, as well as surgery of the hand. I often enlist the expertise of plastic surgery colleagues at McMaster as well as other surgical and medical services to ensure the best possible care for our patients.
In addition to hand and/or microsurgical reconstruction, my practice includes the full range of general plastic surgery that includes excision and reconstruction of cutaneous malignancies, breast surgery and body contouring procedures.
I look forward to working with you in your journey to better health.
