The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery
The Department of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at Erasmus MC focuses on the restoration and reconstruction of the body’s shape and function. Plastic surgery may be indicated when a person has extensive scarring or an abnormal anatomy after trauma, has had surgical removal of a tumor or was born with an anatomical abnormality. The goal of surgery is to restore proper function and appearance, and thereby improve the quality of life.
Our center is the coordinator of the European Reference Network on Craniofacial Anomalies and Ear Nose and Throat (ENT) Disorders.
The Erasmus MC is the largest tertiary care and academic hospital in the Netherlands. Our hospital can proudly offer the services of highly specialized medical professionals for the treatment of complex and rare diseases. Our department provides all reconstructive procedures available, and is front runner in introducing new techniques and performing clinical research to study our outcomes. These efforts are all directed at improving care and quality of life for our patients.
