About us

Prof. Adrian Dragu is a specialist in plastic and aesthetic surgery with an additional qualification in hand surgery and heads the Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery at the Carl Gustav Carus University Hospital. His emphases include the treatment of burn injuries (burns surgery) and hand surgery. Prof. Dragu has also completed a second course of study, graduating with a Master of Health Business Administration.

The Department of Plastic and Hand Surgery treats a variety of injuries and conditions in an interdisciplinary manner. A 24-hour Replantation Service is available for emergencies such as severely injured or severed body parts, particularly of the hand. The goal is, for example, to suture a hand severed in an industrial accident back in place as quickly as possible and to preserve its function. This field of Prof. Dragu’s department also includes the intensive medical care of thermal injuries, including burns of all degrees of severity, lightning injuries, chemical burns and frostbite.

At the same time, both areas of the department, intensive medical care and plastic surgery, complement each other perfectly. Plastic procedures are often performed following the patient’s recovery, in order to restore disfigured body parts cosmetically, if necessary, such as burns scars. Skin tightening following weight reduction and breast reconstruction following treatment for breast cancer also fall within the responsibility of Prof. Dragu’s department. Here, for example, autologous tissue transplantation is utilised.

The specialist field of plastic and aesthetic surgery and hand surgery is also an active field of research and teaching. Prof. Dragu is a member of the Board of Examiners and participates in a leading capacity in research projects, such as in the field of obesity research and in research into chronic pain syndromes of the hand.
