Dr Vlad ILLIE is an Australian trained Specialist in Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery working at St Vincent’s Hospitals, Sydney. He enjoys managing a wide range of pathology, having main interests in microsurgical reconstructions with a focus on Breast and Head & Neck (as a member of Kinghorn Cancer Centre).

Dr Vlad ILLIE completed further international sub-specialty training. His first fellowship was in Stuttgart- Germany, working alongside world-renowned specialists in microsurgery, breast and nasal reconstruction, and rhinoplasty. This was followed by a fellowship in Oxford-UK, gaining experience in reconstructing complex sarcoma cases, lower limb reconstruction (the only Bone Infection Unit in UK) and Vascularized Composite Allotransplantation (VCA). Vlad is fascinated by both the underlying science and the clinical utility of reconstructive transplantation, being a strong believer that VCAs have potential to improve monitoring in heart and lung transplantation.

Teaching and supervising junior doctors is something that Dr ILLIE is passionate about. Being involved first hand in running an experimental microsurgery laboratory early in his training, and then becoming an Instructor for practical courses in Microsurgery gave him the necessary skillset for complex reconstructive cases. He is involved in multiple facets of Plastic Surgery teaching and research, having received the John Loewenthal Scholarship for his Master of Surgery at the University of Sydney.
