Description

Welcome to the seventh installment of our Widening Participation in Plastics webinar series!

Ever thought about what life is like as a plastic surgeon? Thinking about a career in plastic surgery but want to know more?

This webinar series brought to you in association with PRASSA aims to give you an insight into the world of plastic surgery. Each webinar will explore a different sub-speciality of plastics from orthoplastics to trauma to burns, delivered by registrars and consultants across the country. We hope to show you what a day in the life of a plastic surgeon entails, discuss some interesting case stories and inspire you to join the world of plastics! We encourage you to ask questions in our Q&A at the end.

Session 7: Paediatric cleft surgery with Mr Brian Sommerland

Mr Brian Sommerlad is an Honorary Consultant Plastic Surgeon at Great

Ormond Street Hospital[GOSH] and at St. Andrew's Centre for Plastic Surgery, Broomfield Hospital, specialising in Cleft Lip and Palate and associated conditions. He was the first Clinical Director of the North Thames Cleft Lip and Palate Service GOStA].

He has been particularly involved in improving cleft palate repair including the development of the operating microscope for cleft palate repair, refining surgery for repair of the muscles in cleft palate, and in re-repairing the cleft palate as an alternative to pharyngoplasty in some patients.

Furthermore, he was con-founder and now chairman of CLEFT, a charity established in 2007 to fund research activities into cleft lip and palate, and to support the activities of teams abroad in Bangladesh, Sri Lanka, Uganda, Egypt, and the Kurdish region of Iraq, where services are less well-developed.

Mr. Sommerlad regularly visits these countries to work with the cleft teams and local surgeons.

He is a past president of both the British Association of Plastic Surgeons and the Craniofacial Society of Great Britain and Ireland. Although involved in many aspects of plastic surgery, his main activity now is centred around surgery for children and adults with cleft of lip and palate and associated conditions.

We look forward to seeing you at the event!
