Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery Research

The Department of Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery is based on two sites: St Johns Hospital at Livingston and the Royal Hospital for Sick Children, Edinburgh.

Plastic surgery has always been an academic specialty. Its boundaries cross over into many other specialties, allowing for fruitful and productive cross-fertilisation of ideas. Its sheer breadth of sub-specialties including cleft and craniofacial, head and neck, breast, burns, hands and general wound healing among many others, make this one of the most exciting field for academic pursuit and collaboration.
