Micro vascular surgery has been one of the most significant advances that has occurred in the evolution of plastic surgery during the past two decades. The applications of these surgical principles are quite varied and there is no area of plastic surgery that has not had its beneficiary impact. Cancer reconstructive surgery and management of traumatic defects of the limbs has become more refined and easier with and replantation of severed extremities has become a reality with the application of these techniques. There are only few centers that practice these procedures as apart of their routine clinical activity and that offer training facilities.
The department of plastic and reconstructive surgery at Amrita Hospital, Faridabad has a high micro vascular surgery workload . The department has a very high turnover of patients requiring reconstruction of cancer defects as well as traumatic defects of the limbs.
The objective of this programme is to provide nuanced training in microsurgery in the setting of onco reconstruction, reonstruction of complex defects, limb salvage and replantation with adequate hands on training under expert supervision. The candidate will be trained in post operative care, monitoring, techniques of salvage and management of complications.
