SURGICAL TRAINING

FELLOWSHIP IN MICROSURGERY/RECONSTRUCTION UNIVERSITY OF MANITOBA.

2015

The Section of Plastic Surgery at the University of Manitoba offers one of the most intensive Reconstructive Microsurgical fellowships in North America. With more than 450 free flaps completed per year, a single fellow operates on 150 to 200 flaps during their fellowship. 

The breath of perforator flaps performed included DIEP, SIEA, TUG, SGAP, IGAP, TAP, ALT and “free style” Perforator flaps. Muscle flaps for function reconstructions are routinely performed for facial reanimation, functional abdominal wall reconstruction, and upper extremity functional reconstruction. Interests in total and near total nasal reconstruction routinely use pre‐laminated flaps and ascending helical rim free flaps.

While the emphasis of the fellowship is on microvascular reconstruction, all types of complex reconstruction takes place and complement the fellowship immensely.

REGISTRAR IN PLASTIC SURGERY

2010-2014

Registrar training in plastic surgery at the University of Cape Town is a very busy, comprehensive clinical program, centered on providing the highest quality care to patients. Registrars learn the essential skills to ensure patient safety, as well as how to achieve optimal patient outcomes. Registrars rotate at the Groote Schuur Hospital and the Red Cross War Memorial Children's Hospital.

GENERAL SURGERY REGISTRAR

2006 - 2010

During my general surgery rotations I rotated through: Intensive Care; Trauma Surgery; Paediatric Surgery; Breast & Endocrine Surgery; Colorectal Surgery; Hepatobiliary Surgery and Vascular Surgery. This gave me a solid grounding and the skills needed to take on training in Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery.

VISITING DOCTOR - DEPARTMENT OF PLASTIC SURGERY UNISPITAL ZURICH, SWITZERLAND.

April - July 2006

I was fortunate to spend three months in the department at the University Hospital Zurich. This served to confirm my determination to specialize in plastic surgery and exposed me to first world plastic surgery.
