Shaping a Century: Johns Hopkins History of Plastic Surgery

John Staige Davis, a Johns Hopkins School of Medicine graduate and long time faculty member, was the first physician in the United States to dedicate his entire career to plastic surgery. In some ways, plastic surgery was formed around activities that happened at Johns Hopkins, though there were many contributions from other doctors and institutions that have led to today's advancements. Many who were trained here have become leaders in plastic surgery programs across the country — and we continue the tradition of excellence today.
