Dr Bernard Luczak


Bernard completed his medical training at the University of Western Australia (UWA) in 2006, graduating with Honours in degrees of Bachelor of Medicine and Bachelor of Surgery.

Commencing as a junior doctor at Royal Perth Hospital, he subsequently worked across all the major tertiary hospitals in Perth whilst completing his specialist training in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery. Bernard became a Specialist Plastic Surgeon in 2018 when he was awarded a Fellowship of the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons (FRACS).
