Introducing Dr. James Banich

Dr. BanichDr. James Banich is an experienced general plastic surgeon, treating cosmetic and reconstructive issues encompassing the whole body. Dr. Banich began his training with a special focus on the head and neck, completing a residency in Otolaryngology, Head and Neck Surgery at Loyola University Medical Center outside of Chicago and obtaining board certification. Dr.Banich loved the creative and artistic aspects of cosmetic and reconstructive surgery, and became somewhat frustrated with limiting his scope to simply working above the shoulders. During this time of decisions on future sub-specialization in facial plastics, Dr. Banich was recruited by the General Plastic Surgery department and Loyola, where he ultimately spent the next three years generalizing in plastic surgery, learning to treat not only cosmetic and reconstructive issues of the head and neck such as blepharoplasty and rhinoplasty, but also expanding his scope to treat cosmetic and reconstructive breast issues, burns, chronic wounds and traditional plastic surgery work like body contouring and liposuction.

After training, he began practice in Northwest Wisconsin at the Mayo Clinic Health System. For ten years he served the Chippewa Valley region as the sole plastic surgeon, also serving as an extended partner of his colleagues at the Mayo Clinic in nearby Minnesota. He obtained board certification in Plastic Surgery in 2008. Throughout his 10 years in practice, Dr. Banich grew to love what he defines as cosmetic reconstruction: reestablishing form and function of the face, nose, breast, abdomen after cancer, after trauma, after pregnancy or simply after the cumulative effects of time. Reconstruction after skin cancer removal has always been a passion for him, blending his love for facial reconstruction, and his desire for aesthetic restoration of form and function. It is this desire that led him to join forces with Vanguard.

Throughout his tenure in the Mayo Health System, he was recognized for excellent patient satisfaction, and was chosen in 2015 to serve as the Patient Experience Champion of the Northwest Wisconsin region of the Mayo Health System. He accepted the position because of his strong belief that the needs of the patient always come first. The first step in meeting a patient’s expectations is understanding those expectations.

Even with diet and exercise, sometimes we cannot achieve the body that we desire. Plastic surgery can help reshape the body and achieve the desired result.
