“One should always strive to improve the quality and efficiency of the healthcare service you provide”

For healthcare professionals, research is fundamental to the continual improvement in the care one can provide to patients. During his early pioneering years as a plastic surgeon, Dr Dona described many new techniques in hand surgery resulting in improved outcomes for patients with hand injuries. His contribution to the hand surgery literature ensures that patients are always in good hands.
