Prof Klaus-Dietrich Wolff

K.-D. Wolff (Munich, Germany) researches in the area of tumor and reconstructive surgery. The aim of his research is to improve the microsurgical tissue transfer through a better understanding of anatomy and a systematic approach to flap raising. He developed the German Guideline for the treatment of oral cancer and contributed to establish perforator flaps for intraoral reconstruction. Actually, he persues the idea to use an extracorporeal perfusion system for free flap transfer in difficult cases.
K.-D. Wolff has published more than 250 Medline-listed papers and is President of the European Association for Cranio-Maxillo-Facial Surgery 2016-2018.
