Our Gillies Plastic Surgery Archives contain 2,858 records, taken from operations performed between 1917 and 1925 by the legendry surgeon Dr Harold Gillies. Gillies is widely considered to be the father of Plastic surgery and became famous for the pioneering treatments he gave to thousands of young men who suffered horrific facial injuries fighting on the Western Front.
