Short autobiography:

I received my basic training in plastic surgery in Plovdiv, Bulgaria and Lille, France.

From 2010 special interests in cleft lip and palate, and ear reconstruction with the idea to work on a PhD thesis related to ear reconstruction.

I`m member of ALA – the parent organisation for facial anomalies in Bulgaria from 2009

Participated in a STSM - Read the report

Reason for joining: The Unit is a national center for facial anomalies and has sufficient recruitment. Our personal experience will gain quality if we can obtain a more close contact with other international center with more experience in the field. The psychosocial aspects in CLP patients are relatively under development, but the same cannot be affirmed in relation to patients with otomandibular syndromes. A parallel psychological evaluation protocol for level of satisfaction outcomes for these patient could be developed and the results could be evaluated in short perspective
Current research interest in relation to the COST Action: Education of Health professionals in the front line, surgical outcomes, psychosocial support
