What do you like about this subject?

It is intensely creative, full of possibilities, always pushing the frontiers of scientific knowledge,surgical craftsmanship and human imagination. We solve problems of structure and function in any part of the body. Although we use high tech, yet much can be achieved with basic equipment, it is truly a brains and skills speciality.

What do you still hope to achieve/learn in this field?

I plan to explore the exciting field of minimally invasive [key-hole surgery] surgery applications in the field of plastic surgery. Laser surgery is yet another area that I would ike to get into in due course.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

Did you know that plastic surgery started in India and records date back to 3000 BC? War and deformities caused by mutiliating punishments were the main driving force in the development of this branch of surgery. In the 18th century English surgeons working in the East India company observed this type of nose reconstructive surgery in India took the techniques to Europe.
