Plastic, Reconstructive & Burns Surgery - For a better life!

  

 

The Department of Plastic, Reconstructive & Burns Surgery was formally established at AIIMS, in 2015. Before that, Plastic Surgery care was integral to the discipline of General Surgery, including ENT, Surgical Oncology, and Paediatric Surgery.

Professor Upadhyaya, Head of Paediatric Surgery and Professor IK Dhawan founded state of the art cleft surgery at the AIIMS in the early eighties. It was also around that time, Dr Rakesh Khazanchi joined the faculty. Having been trained in advanced microsurgery from Melbourne, Australia, he focused on limb and hand replantation with micro-vascular tissue transfers, and interdisciplinary cleft care in collaboration with the Department of Orthodontics.

Dr Maneesh Singhal joined the Institute as faculty in 2005 in the Department of Surgical Disciplines and enhanced the legacy by harnessing various Plastic & Reconstructive procedures and collaborations. In 2015, the Department came into formal existence and the concept for state-of-the-art dedicated Burn and Plastic surgery block was envisaged. The block became a reality and was inaugurated on 18th January 2021. Although in its nascent stage, it is already making its presence known, not just nationally but in the international arena also. The endeavour of this young and enthusiastic team of surgeons is to reduce the morbidity and provide functionality by reconstructive and microsurgical procedures thereby providing an improved quality of life to the patients. This centre will cater to one thousand burn patients annually with facilities that are unavailable anywhere else in the country.
