The Royal Free Hospital is set to have a new state-of-the-art surgical centre designed to treat patients with disfigurements.
The Charles Wolfson Centre for Reconstructive Surgery will give surgeons access to ground breaking technology and equipment to provide reconstructive surgery.
The £3 million centre will also have a newly-designed lab for research into the latest plastic reconstructive surgery, led by surgeon Professor Peter Butler.
Prof Butler said: “I am delighted that this centre is going to be developed. This will be one of the largest centres for plastic reconstructive surgery in the country.
“We will be researching new treatments for patients with burns, for example, as well as treatments for armed forces personnel who have combat injuries.”
