The reach of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery has grown rapidly in recent years, including super-specialties such as microsurgery, post-oncologic reconstructive surgery, maxillofacial surgery, cleft and craniofacial surgery and cosmetic surgery.
Citizens Specialty Hospital team of plastic surgeon lead the way in the management of poly-trauma, maxillofacial concerns and hand injuries. In many cases our plastic surgeons work closely with doctors from other super-specialties in a problem-solving role, addressing concerns that arise as a result of a wide range of diseases and their treatment.
Citizens Specialty Hospital plastic surgeons interact with nearly every other speciality in some capacity in the team-based management of challenging cases. As cancer treatments have become more effective in the advanced disease, we work very closely with oncologists to reconstruct damage caused as a result of tumours or during their removal. We manage the closure of difficult wounds and complicated recurrent abdominal hernias, post-bariatric surgery and skin laxity requiring various lifts. We also routinely treat congenital anomalies.
All in all, our plastic surgeons play a key role in minimising lasting cosmetic impacts from a variety of diseases, thereby helping patients to move on to the recovery phase and on with their lives.
