Research Facts
This photo is from #1 Plastic & Jaw Surgery Unit Rooksdown House Basingstoke, Hampshire England. Perhaps the most significant improvements in the history of plastic surgery occurred in the last century, where several plastic surgery techniques were introduced during the world wars. Pioneering skin grafting techniques such as the ‘tubed pedicled graft’, were developed during World War I and refined by leading plastic surgeons Archibald McIndoe and Harold Gilles who used the techniques to treat severe facial burns. These staged procedures differed from earlier plastic surgery because they relied on the growth and development of a blood supply from the recipient bed into the grafted tissue over many weeks or months. Belongs with other loose photographs from Dr. Gordon's photograph album for 'Canadian Medical Corps at Surgical Station in France, WWII Sugical Ward Photographs' 002.050.423.
