Mr Georgios Orfaniotis is a fully accredited Plastic Surgeon who practices as a Consultant in both the NHS and private sector. He holds a full-time, substantive Consultant post at Guys and St Thomas’ Hospitals London, where he regularly performs complex reconstructive and corrective surgery in the Head and Neck area. In his private practice he offers a wide range of plastic surgery treatments in prime central London locations.
Georgios has obtained the Plastic Surgery Fellowship exam of the Royal College of Surgeons (FRCS Plast) and the European plastic surgery board exam (EBOPRAS). He was entered onto the GMC specialist register for Plastic surgery in 2015. He is a full member of the British Association of Plastic Surgeons (BAPRAS), the International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (ISAPS) and the British Association of Head & Neck oncologists (BAHNO).
Mr Orfaniotis is one of the very few surgeons in the UK who has undertaken 3 years of advanced international fellowship training before taking his Consultant role in 2017. This included senior fellow positions in world-renowned Plastic surgery units in Taichung - Taiwan, Guys and St Thomas’ Hospital - London, and the Royal Melbourne Hospital - Australia. He consolidated his specialist aesthetic training with a prestigious aesthetic fellowship at the Wellington Hospital - London.
Prior to these additional fellowships, Georgios completed 7 years of higher specialist Plastic surgery training working as a senior registrar in several pioneering UK hospitals including Canniesburn Plastic surgery Unit - Glasgow, Queen Victoria hospital - East Grinstead, St Thomas’ hospital - London, and Addenbrookes hospital - Cambridge.
He graduated in Thessaloniki, Greece in 2002 and after completing his core surgical training he served as a doctor in the Greek army for 1 year. He moved to the UK in 2006 where he obtained the Membership exam of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS) and continued higher specialist Plastic surgery training.
Mr Orfaniotis has been recognised internationally as invited faculty and has won travelling fellowship awards from the Royal College of Surgeons of England. Georgios has also travelled to Ethiopia as a volunteer expert surgeon to perform life-changing reconstructive surgery to people who suffered disfiguring facial deformities. He has a keen interest in teaching and innovation and enjoys clinical research, with over 30 published articles in peer-reviewed plastic surgery journals.
