l)r. lalward Luce. chief ol plastic
surgery at the UK (‘ollege of Medi-
cine. was one of seven l’niversity
physicians recently nruned to a list
of the “Best Doctors in America."

The list was compiled from sur-
veys mailed to doctors around the
country. who were asked to rate
their colleagues' abilities

Luce described the honor as
“very cotnplitncntzuy becaUse you
are being recognized as outsuuiding
by your peers » perhaps the great-
est compliment of all."

Although the new title as one of
the best in America is a flattering
gesture. it hasn't had any dramatic
effects on |.uce‘s life. His other po-
sitions. like being past president of
the American Society of Maxillofa-
cial Surgeons and past chairmzui of
the Americiui Board of Plastic Sur-
gery. are much more important to

"Being in these situations and
witnessing how people dedicate
themselves to their specialty." Luce
said. “is most rewarding — along
with my practice in general and
simply coming into work every

Plastic surgeon dedicated to teaching


Luce runs the graduate program
in plastic and reconstnictive sur-
gery. That is. he gives training and
education to those students who
have successfully completed medi-
cal school and are enrolled in plas-
tic surgery residency.

'lhe UK Hospital gets the majori-
ty of Luce's attention. However. he
also serves Lexington's Veteran‘s
Affairs hospitals. St. Joseph's.
Good Samaritan and llurnana for
his patients' convenience.

Luce pointed out that his job as
professor of surgery drastically dif-
fers from that in am ordinary teach-
er-student setting. Most of his
teachings are in one-on-one situa-
tions with students in an actual op-
erating room or at a patient‘s bed-
side. rather than in a classroom.

As an instructor. Luce said. his
philosophy of education is based on
two points. He said he believes that
students must first acquire the
knowledge by simply memorizing
the fundamentals. 'lhey must then
utilize that knowledge and apply it
to solve problems.

He places emphasis on positive
feedback and cautions the use of ex-
cessive criticism in teaching. In-
stead. he pushes rewarding stu-

lf Luce could pass to his students
something that he was able to learn
only through experience. it would
be never to miss a chance to gain
knowledge. Luce said he believes
once an opportunity is passed up. it
is forever gone.

He also is a tinn believer that
people can be whatever they desire
to be. as long as they have the drive
to do it.

Luce graduated frotn UK in I965
with the second graduating class of
the (‘ollege of Medicine. He corn-
pleted residencies at Washington
University's Barnes Hospital in St.
louts and the John Hospital in Bal-

Before retuming to UK in 1975.
Luce was an American Cancer fel-
low and surgical fellow at Johns
Hopkins University and at the Uni-
versity of Maryland.

“I always loved UK. even as a
student here. When I left UK for St.
Louis. I knew in the back of my
mind. if l ever had the chance to
come back, I would,“ Luce said.

He said UK's (‘ollege of Medi—
cine may not be appreciated by the
student body as tnuch it should be,
Luce pointed out that when he re—
turned to the University. he crunc
from Johns Hopkins — the “mec-
ca" of medicine. He was tuna/ed.

America," enjoys teaching, when he's not performing his duties at UK Hospital.
