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.
Dr. Gordon graduated from the University of Toronto in 1926. After serving in the Royal Canadian Army Medical Corps in World War II, he returned to Toronto to become the Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Toronto General Hospital and the first head of the University of Toronto training program in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery.
