Doctors of the Centre

 

Surgeons at GRACE are one of the first and, in some cases, the only ones in Ukraine who have membership in leading international associations: American Association of Plastic Surgeons, International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery, All-Ukrainian Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons, European Society for Aesthetic Gynecology and others.
.

Surgeons at GRACE are the first in Ukraine to be invited to participate in operations in leading European clinics: in Germany, Austria, France, Sweden and other countries. The entire medical staff of GRACE has been a cohesive team for more than 20 years. In each operation, our assistant physician is always the assistant of the operating surgeon, and not an intern or a nurse.
