Très bonne expérience. Prise en charge très éfficace.
Gentillesse et grand professionnalisme des spécialistes et du personnel.
Très bonne expérience. Prise en charge très éfficace.
Suite à une chirurgie des valves , j’ai été admis à la clinique Bizet pour reprendre des forces et débuter une réadaptation cardiaque. La clinique est très réputée , bien située et d’un grand confort .
Le personnel soignant est très agréable, les médecins sont professionnels, très attentifs et prévenants .
La réadaptation est menée par deux charmants kinésithérapeutes, deux coachs, deux tempéraments mais un seul objectif : nous remettre en forme .
Ils sont à l’écoute de chaque personne du groupe , attentionnés dans les moments difficiles et parfois rudes face à l’effort mais toujours bienveillants.
je tiens à les remercier de m’avoir remis sur pieds
After I finished my medical studies, I wanted to do plastic surgery and I was very certain of this.
One year ago, I started writing a lot of emails to this hospital and finally someone answered and they gave me a chance. But we could not manage at that time because I had to do all my studies, my universities, my exams.
So after a year, I finally came. Paris was my first choice because I wanted to be in the capital of France. We Romanian, we know how important and how good French education is. This was my first choice and after I searched for the best center when I can learn about breasts, I found the Paris Breast Center.
I also decided then that I want to do my final paper on breast surgery and after I sent one year ago a few emails, they answered me and we communicated throughout the whole year. And I managed finally to come. I’m very happy with what I saw.
I’ve learned a lot and mostly I’m very grateful for every little thing that I see because I know this is this is the way you, you see a technique. You see how the surgeon is having their hand and you see how they are putting the needle and you see how they are putting all the passion, all the hours, all the effort.
And that is how I know that I want to do plastic surgery. I really want to come back, actually. This is also one of my biggest desire to come here and to learn something more.
I have just recently finished my fellowship and so now I will be starting work formally when I return to the United States.
I came here to the Paris Breast Center to work directly with Krishna Clough, who is very well known in the field of oncoplastic breast surgery because I wanted to improve my skills in that.
I’ve been here at the Paris Breast Center for the past one month. I came here because I wanted to gain a broader exposure to oncoplastic breast reconstruction.
I’ve been very happy with my experience here. I’ve gained a lot of new knowledge. I’ve been able to see procedures that I’ve never heard of before or seen before in the United States.
One of the most important procedures I saw and will be able to take back with me to the United States was the in-breast glandular rotation flap where you are able to resect the breast resect the breast tissue, the breast cancer and then immediately fill that defect with the patient’s own breast tissue.
When I return, I will be able to perform my own glandular rotational flaps in the breast after resection.
I continue to see the Paris Breast Centre as a place that was advancing the field and setting the trend. And I think that really spoke to me as a great opportunity to learn some of these techniques and take them back to Canada. There’s a level of expertise in France, in Europe specifically at the Paris Breast Centre that I don’t think you can obtain in Canada the United States. Their unique model, their unique approach to breast cancer was something that I wanted to take back and pursue.
The concept of oncoplastic surgery started in Europe and I think the team at the Paris Breast Center were paramount in developing these techniques. I think that these techniques are slowly getting integrated in the United States and Canada. But we have not made the jump to these techniques at this point. The best opportunity for me was to come to Paris and to learn from the group at the Paris Breast Centre who are truly the world leaders when it comes to oncoplastic breast surgery incorporating plastic surgery techniques into breast oncology. It’s an idea that was started by Dr. CLOUGH and his team in Paris.
My time in France I do not consider it as a sacrifice at all. I have thoroughly enjoyed working with the team at the Paris Breast Centre. I think I’m learning new things every day whether it be surgical techniques or patient management decisions or wound care tricks or how to set up an office, how to run an integrated Breast Centre. So to me I’m not sacrificing anything. I think it’s a great opportunity. I’m very honored to be given the opportunity.
I think the instruction is great. Dr. CLOUGH and Dr. SARFATI are excellent teachers in the operating room, always explaining what they’re doing. I truly believe this is training that I wouldn’t have obtained in Canada or the United States.
I am an associate professor of surgery and I’m the chief of the breast service at Yale in New Haven.
So I came to work and study at the Paris Breast Center and clinic Bizet for a period of three months. And the reason I wanted to come was to learn more about oncoplastic surgery.
In the United States, our training is a little bit different and we don’t have as much training in plastic surgery as many of our European colleagues. So I wanted to come and work with Krishna Clough because he’s one of the pioneers of oncoplastic surgery.
And I wanted to spend some time in Paris getting to know him and working with him and getting some firsthand experience in oncoplastics. Ideally, the reason I wanted to come is to benefit my patients to give them better cosmetic outcomes after their lumpectomies and to be able to do more breast conserving surgery.
I think the two most useful techniques that I learned here was something called an advancement flap, where I learned how to undermine the skin and free the breast gland from the muscle to fill in a lumpectomy defect and really reshape the breast after lumpectomy. So there’s no deformity.
And the other technique that I learned about was something called a rotational glandular flap, where we recruit a little bit of breast tissue from a different place after a lumpectomy and use that to fill in a cavity or a hole to get the best cosmetic outcome.
I work at Fiona Stanley Hospital, which is a tertiary hospital in Perth in Western Australia. I am an Oncoplastic breast surgeon, so I do breast cancer surgery and level one and two oncoplasty.
I’m also a general surgeon as well.
So I first met Dr Clough and Dr Isabelle Sarfati in 2013.
I attended one of the master classes about oncoplastic surgery, and this is when I first started doing this technique.
Since then, I attended different conferences, especially the one that Dr Clough had attended and presented at, because that had… That did have a big influence on improving my oncoplastic techniques.
Both Dr Clough and Dr Isabelle Sarfati have an international reputation about oncoplastic surgery. The reason that made me come to France and to the Paris breast clinic is because of the high quality teaching and the variety of cases that a surgeon will be exposed to.
One of my colleagues, actually from Fiona Stanley Hospital in Perth, he was here about a few months ago and he spoke very highly about the quality of teaching here, and that’s made me come all the way to attend different types of surgery at the Paris Breast Clinic with both Dr Clough and Dr Sarfati.
I stayed for two weeks and that was actually very useful for me. I tried to balance work and pleasure as well. Paris is a great city. There are lots of things to see here.
But during these two weeks, we did see a variety of cases and I did have the opportunity to work with both Dr Clough and Dr Sarfati. And I found that was very useful to improve
my techniques and for my profession as well
I’m very happy to announce that, after all these years spent abroad for residency and fellowship, i came back to my country to start my activity in the Shoulder Unit at Ospedale Koelliker Torino.
I must thanks another time for all the teachings recieved my mentors in Belgium at Université catholique de Louvain and the great masters of shoulder surgery as Lafosse Laurent, Thibault Lafosse and Philippe Valenti during my fellowship in France.
Last September and October as part of my final and fourth year of residency, I was able to do an international observership rotation at Clinique Bizet in Paris, France. I was lucky enough to meet and learn from Dr. Philippe V, a great mentor in shoulder surgery and great human outside the operating room. I am very humbled by this experience.
I am also very thankful to have met a wonderful group of international co-fellows Giovanni Caruso, Moussa el Jerdy and Maria Elisa Olivera and last but not least I want to thank Imen Nid Tahar research assistant for helping me along the way.
I hope to see you guys again very soon.
Merci Beaucoup et à bientôt.
