Norbert Pallua, MD, PhD has been the Director of the Department of Plastic, Hand and Burn Surgery since 1997.
In 2003 his department was the first and until today the only Plastic Surgery unit in Germany to be accredited as a training centre by the European Board of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (EBOPRAS) of the Union of European Medical Societies (UEMS).
Professor Pallua is an active board member of many specialist associations and is often invited to national and international conferences as a speaker or course instructor. This keeps him up to date on the latest research findings and practice methods. The knowledge he acquires in this way is applied daily in the work carried out in his department.
His long years of experience, his precision, and his meticulous approach, combined with modern surgical methods performed in accordance with the strictest of hygienic standards, produce prime results.
