Plastic surgery

Plastic surgery is concerned with restoring function and aesthetic form to areas of the body that have been damaged by an accident or tumour. By reconstructing parts of the body or restoring nerves and tendons, by restoring normal physical capabilities and thus enabling people to function just as they did before their accident or operation, we are able to give them back a part of their identity and improve their quality of life. In this field too, German hospitals draw on specialised and highly sophisticated surgical procedures.
