University Hospital Erlangen
Department of Plastic Surgery and Hand Surgery
Raymund E. Horch
Specialized in: plastic surgery, hand surgery
In view of an increasing specialization in modern medicine, and as a result of rapid development of new reconstruction methods and technologies, in 1995, plastic surgery became a separate discipline. The clinic is specialized in restoration and improvement of form and function of the body surface and restoration of functional defects of organs and functional systems.
The attitude towards recovery of the lost body parts and functions, fortunately, has changed dramatically in recent time. Everyone has the right to a happy life with an intact and functioning organism, and the modern medicine can be a great aid in it. While the people used to live with the fact that certain parts of the body have been lost due to accidents or disease, or were deformed due to congenital malformations, today the plastic reconstructive surgery is often able to restore their form and function. For this, special surgical techniques have been developed. Many new methods and techniques, such as microsurgery and endoscopic procedures, have received, especially in recent years, a decisive influence and further development. They contribute to the fact that now the plastic surgical operations can be performed particularly sparing and precisely.
These methods allow, for example, to stretch, move, cloth, or - with the help of microsurgery to transplant skin, muscles, tendons, and blood vessels. In addition, the plastic design and reconstruction of the lost tissue and nerve tissue structures often implemented through surgical skill and allow patients with tumors and injuries caused by accidents largely return to "normal" life.
