The Hospital Quiron Malaga is a new facility equipped with the latest in medical technology, hosting virtually every medical speciality.
The group currently runs hospitals in Madrid, Barcelona and Valencia and enjoys an unrivalled reputation in the Spanish healthcare system.
Within the Hospital Quiron Malaga, the new department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery, headed by Plastic Surgeon Dr.Alexander Aslani, sets out to establish a new quality of care within the speciality.
Being the only department of its kind outside the strictly public healthcare sector, the departments spectrum goes far beyond purely cosmetic surgery.
The medical director of Hospital Quiron Malaga, Dr.Angel Gíro Camacho, says:
“We want to offer our patients access to reconstructive surgery at highest level.
Therefore, as the medical director of Malaga´s Quiron Hospital, we are very happy and excited to have appointed Dr.Alexander Aslani as Head of department of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive Surgery.
Dr.Aslani does not only offer an outstanding experience in the field of cosmetic surgery, but is a highly experienced reconstructive surgeon as well”.
Reconstructive microsurgery, extending from breast to head and neck, lower limb and hand reconstruction , will be one of the special features on offer within the hospital Plastic surgery department.
Dr.Aslani is also director of the renowned Cirumed Clinic, which is located in neighbouring Marbella .
As chief surgeon of the clinic he has performed about 500 aesthetic procedures yearly in recent years.
But when screening for a qualified Plastic Surgeon to fill the position , Hospital Quiron´s medical director Dr.Angel Giro Camacho had more than “just”cosmetic surgery in mind.
“For us it was important to select a surgeon with international experience and a solid background as a reconstructive surgeon, “Dr.Angel Giro Camacho says.
”Our screening has been intense but we found Dr.Aslani to be the ideal candidate able to fulfill our requirements to recruit a top surgeon in the field of reconstructive microsurgery.”
Before moving to Spain, Dr.Aslani has held substantiative positions as consultant in academic departments of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in Europe and South Africa. He has also been in private practice in the UK, mainly in the field of aesthetic surgery.
In building the department, Dr.Aslani receives high level support by Dr.Manuel Ortiz Abello, a highly experienced reconstructive head and neck surgeon, former head of department of head and neck surgery in Rosario, Argentina, who will be first consultant and principal specialist of the department.
“I am very happy to have Dr Ortiz as a consultant in the department,”
Hand surgery is also in the spectrum of Hospital Quirons new Plastic Surgery unit, extending from elective hand surgery to microsurgical reimplantation of amputate extremities.
A focus of the new department will also be secondary rhinoplasty, especially after trauma or previous surgery.
