ALAN J. BURKE, M.D.

Dr. Burke graduated from The Royal London Hospital Medical College, part of the University of London. Training in Internal Medicine led him to Emory University in Atlanta, Georgia where he met his wife, Leemore, an OB/GYN in Richmond. After completing residency training in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck surgery at Wake Forest University, he pursued fellowship training in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at one of the most prestigious and nationally recognized programs in the country under Drs Ted Cook and Tom Wang at Oregon Health Sciences University (OHSU) in Portland, Oregon.

He practiced in Portland, Oregon as a faculty affiliate of OHSU and the Northwest Permanente group as Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon serving the Otolaryngology, Head and Neck department where he was actively involved in teaching medical students and residents. In this role, he managed the Skin Cancer Clinic and was a member of the Cleft lip and palate clinics. In 2001, he joined Virginia Ear, Nose and Throat Associates in Richmond, Virginia. His practice encompasses all aspects of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive surgery of the head and neck, including cosmetic, congenital, traumatic and cancer defects of the face.

Dr Burke is board certified by the American Board of Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery, and is fellowship-trained in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. He has published numerous articles and book chapters in peer-reviewed journals and textbooks devoted to Facial Plastic and Otolaryngology/Head and Neck surgery.

Dr Burke’s main interest in Facial Plastic Surgery is in rhinoplasty surgery, rejuvenation of the aging face and all aspects of reconstructive surgery, particulary in skin cancer.

Dr Burke says, “I believe that the training and focus of the facial plastic surgeon best equips us to focus upon the dual goals of appearance and function which are paramount to good results in surgery.”

“My philosophy in facial cosmetic surgery is to create natural, balanced results for each patient. My main areas of interest in facial cosmetic surgery are in rhinoplasty and facial rejuvenation, including endoscopic procedures. As a facial plastic surgeon, I am able to emphasize and refine the art of facial cosmetic surgery and take it to a higher level.”
