Miss Sherina Balaratnam Published as Co-author in The Oxford Textbook Of Plastic And Reconstructive Surgery

Today marks a very special day, when I received my copy of the newly published ‘Oxford Textbook of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery’


Oxford Textbook of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery

I am deeply honoured to have been invited to co-author the chapter on Botulinum Toxins, alongside Consultant Dermatologist Dr Tamara Griffith and Specialist Oral Surgeon, Mr Sami Stagnell:


12. Cosmetic Surgery

12.4:Botulinum Toxins, Tamara Griffith, Sherina Balaratnam, and S Stagnell

“The Oxford Textbook of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery is a comprehensive reference text detailing all aspects of plastic surgery pertinent to a surgeon in training for specialisation and suitable to use in preparation for the Intercollegiate Examination as all aspects of the curriculum are covered. It is part of the Oxford Textbooks in Surgery series, edited by Professor Sir Peter Morris.”

“This prestigious publication will be used as an educational resource for a generation of Plastic Surgeons and is split into 13 comprehensive sections; including General Principles, Burns, Nerve, Limbs, Facial Trauma, Cosmetic surgery, and Ethics among other key areas in the field.”

Former NHS Surgeon

As a former NHS Surgeon myself, including 7 years plastic surgery training covering reconstructive burn surgery, paediatric burns, trauma surgery and skin cancer reconstruction, I am proud to have been able to contribute some of my experience to the next generation of plastic surgeons as they embark on what is a formidable but incredible career.
