About Plastic and Hand Surgery
Plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery is one of eight surgical disciplines designated as an independent specialist field. To obtain a specialisation in this field, at least six years of training is required.
The qualification as a specialist hand surgeon can be obtained following the completion of specialisation training as part of an additional two-year course (also known as hand surgery).
Prof. Sauerbier is a regular examiner of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery specialisation candidates and for the additional hand surgery qualification for the State Medical Association in Hesse, Germany.
Prof. Sauerbier is a qualified university lecturer for the specialist field of plastic and reconstructive surgery at Goethe University in Frankfurt am Main. This enables medical students to complete their doctoral thesis or degree under his supervision.
