Since his appointment in 1988, as an Assistant Professor at the University of Ottawa and a previous Acting Chief of Plastic Surgery at the Civic Hospital, his interests have been directed towards the cosmetic surgery side of his Plastic Surgery specialty. This focus demands that he maintain ongoing educational exposure in the form of meetings and courses. New advances in the form of laser technology and skin care management as well as variations in surgical procedures continue to evolve in his efforts to improve surgical outcomes.
Dr. Van Wyck has spent time and effort incorporating many of these new advances into his own practice. As a reflection of his efforts in maintaining his level of standards, he was both privileged and honored to have received the Consumers Choice Award in the Cosmetic Surgery Category.
His efforts remain directed towards serving your needs, whether they are for body contouring, facial rejuvenation or one of a number of breast reshaping procedures.
