January 2012 Rotterdam - Vasu Karri (London, UK)

“The DAFPRS fellowship was a fantastic finale to my plastic surgery training. Dr van der Meulen must be congratulated for the organization, flexibility and exposure to reconstructive and aesthetic surgery this fellowship offers. The welcoming nature of all those involved added to the enjoyment. The fellow has the option to attend any operation they wish, making best use of their time. Particular aspects of the Rotterdam fellowship that were outstanding included the weekly indication meeting where forthcoming cases would be discussed (in English), microsurgery training under the close supervision of Ineke Hekking, ear reconstruction with Prof Kon, Utrecht, head & neck and facial palsy reconstruction with Dr Mureau.I particularly enjoyed my time with Dr Jeroen Stevens (Bergman Clinic, Den Haag) who is undoubtedly one of the best trainers I have come across. His step-by-step demonstration of aesthetic techniques, enthusiasm and analytic approach was truly inspiring. My objective for the aesthetic surgery component of this fellowship was the knowledge and confidence to assess patients and perform surgery. To this end, I feel I have achieved this outcome. Looking back, I am surprised at the number of techniques, tips and tricks I learned in a short space of time. My second 3 months was due to be spent in Ghent with Drs Tonnard and Verpaele. Unfortunately, due to other commitments my time was cut short. However, the organization, variety of aesthetic surgery and opportunity to learn from the experts was excellent. I would strongly recommend this fellowship to anyone interested facial plastic surgery.”
