Highlights

  • Breast reconstructive service. Working in conjunction with multidisciplinary teams at multiple Epworth sites, the plastic surgery unit offers the full range of reconstructive options
  • Epworth is a major provider of care of maxillo-facial trauma patients through Emergency Department referrals, with close links to the AFL and Rugby leagues
  • Experience in caring for complex facial deformity patients for over 30 years
  • In an Australian-first surgical procedure, Epworth’s oral and maxillofacial surgeon George Dimitroulis in 2015 corrected a young man’s rare congenital jaw deformity, using a 3D printed jaw joint that was designed and created in Melbourne. Mr Dimitroulis led the surgical team who reconstructed the missing jaw with a custom-made jaw that was the result of careful collaboration between doctors, 3D Medical (ASX:3DM), and researchers from the School of Engineering at the University of Melbourne
  • Trauma service. Emergency cases are accepted via emergency departments and as direct referrals
