    Collapse Overview
    Bryan J. Winn, MD, is an Associate Clinical Professor of Ophthalmology at UCSF and Chief of Ophthalmology at the San Francisco Veterans Affairs Medical Center. He is board-certified in Ophthalmology and a fellow of the American Society of Ophthalmic Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), specializing in the medical and surgical management of eyelid, lacrimal, and orbital disorders, as well as aesthetic rejuvenation of the face.

    Dr. Winn graduated Summa Cum Laude from Amherst College where he was elected to the Phi Beta Kappa honor society. He completed his medical school training at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons in 2003. There he was elected to the Alpha Omega Alpha medical honor society and was awarded the Edith and Denton McKane Memorial Award for outstanding research in ophthalmology and the prestigious Janeway Prize for the highest achievement and abilities in the graduating class. Between his third and fourth years of medical school, he completed a clinical research fellowship in Ocular Electrophysiology and Neuro-ophthalmology at Columbia University.

    Following an internship specializing in Internal Medicine at the Brigham and Women’s Hospital/Harvard Medical School in Boston, Massachusetts, he was a resident in Ophthalmology at UCSF. After residency, Dr. Winn completed a two-year fellowship in Oculoplastic Surgery accredited by the American Society of Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS) in Seattle, WA. During this time, he developed broad clinical and surgical expertise in ophthalmic plastic surgery as well as aesthetic facial rejuvenation techniques. He joined the oculoplastic surgery faculty in the Department of Ophthalmology at Columbia University in 2009 where he served as the Chief of Oculoplastic and Orbital Surgery until 2018. At Columbia he was also the Director of Medical Student Education, Ophthalmology Residency Program Director, Quality and Patient Safety Chair for Ophthalmology, and Associate Designated Institutional Official for Graduate Medical Education for the NewYork-Presbyterian Hospital System.

    In addition to his clinical practice at UCSF and role as Ophthalmology Chief at the San Francisco Veterans Administration Medical Center, Dr. Winn is actively involved research on ocular surface and eyelid inflammation, thyroid eye disease and the potential roles of environment, nutrition and the human microbiome on chronic and inflammatory eye and orbital diseases. Dr. Winn has published over 40 peer-reviewed scientific articles and several book chapters. He frequently presents at international, national, and state scientific and professional meetings. He is a member of the American Academy of Ophthalmology (AAO), the American Society of Oculoplastic and Reconstructive Surgery (ASOPRS), the North American Society of Academic Orbital Surgeons (NASAOS), and International Thyroid Eye Disease Society (ITEDS).

    Always with a smile, Dr. Winn is a caring and understanding physician, merging clinical acumen with a warm bedside manner. His philosophy of medical care reflects this: “So much of medicine today is run like an assembly line in a high-volume factory, often falling short of creating a quality product. I believe there is still a place for the thinker, craftsman, and innovator. I’d much rather take the time necessary to tease out the correct diagnosis, custom-design a treatment plan with my patient, and execute that plan with painstaking attention to detail than be an ‘assembly line’ physician.”
