January 2013 Rotterdam/London - Andreas Kehrer (Regensburg, Germany)

“Located in an attractive area of North London, the Unit for Plastic Surgery at the Royal Free Hospital (NHS) holds one of the largest departments in the country. The fellow is able to work with internationally renowned surgeons that perform plastic surgery at the highest level of difficulty and detail. For fellows planning to find an adequate balance between reconstructive (not just bound to facial surgery) and aesthetic surgery, this part of the fellowship is highly recommended. Seventeen specialized consultants cover all of microsurgery and reconstructive facial surgery (ear, nose and periorbital reconstructions, facial reanimation, rhinoplasties etc.) except cleft and major maxillofacial procedures. In the vast majority of the cases there is always a place at the table for the fellow. Even though one will not be able to operate the patients this provides a superb chance to develop a feel for the procedure and an eye for details. Everyone made me feel very welcome to join the operations and be part of the team. Apart from their NHS-work, the consultants cover all aspects of aesthetic surgery in private hospitals. Most of them will be happy to let you join for their private lists as many of the consultants were once fellows themselves. Travelling to the private hospitals in the greater London area takes time and money but is well worth it. All English surgeons and personal demonstrated an disarming openness and hospitality towards me as a foreign fellow.”
