Steven R. Buchman is a Tenured Professor of Surgery in the Section of Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery and holds a joint appointment as a Professor of Neurosurgery at the University of Michigan Medical School. He is the Director of the Craniofacial Anomalies Program at the University of Michigan Medical Center and the Chief of Pediatric Plastic Surgery at the C.S. Mott Children's Hospital.
Dr. Buchman started his research career as an undergraduate at Columbia University where he published articles in both Nature and The Proceedings in the National Academy of Science and was honored as a Macy Scholar. He went on to Medical School where his research was presented at the Society of University Surgeons and published in the journal Surgery. Dr. Buchman started the Craniofacial Research Laboratory at the University of Michigan where he has built a research program that has been recognized nationally and internationally. Dr. Buchman's research interests revolve around gaining a better understanding of the behavior of bone in the craniofacial skeleton in the hope of translating new discoveries he learns at the laboratory bench to the practice of better medicine at the patient's bedside.
