Reconstructive surgery

Rodrigo is from a school of surgery that holds the belief in the balance between cosmetic and reconstructive surgery. He likes the variety of clinical scenarios in reconstruction and the thought process of finding solutions customised to individual cases and needs.  Reconstructive surgery is very rewarding and looking after children with cleft lip and palate always puts a smile on his face. In addition to congenital defects and traumatic injuries, a lot of reconstructive work originates from management of skin cancer.

Hand Surgery

In hand surgery every patient has different needs and requirements. Multidisciplinary care is often required and it is important to formulate a treatment plan that takes into account work, hobbies and social circumstances. In addition, his practise not only consists of elective hand surgery, but also hand injuries.
