Mr Nicholas Kalavrezos is a Head and Neck Reconstructive Surgeon at the Harley Street Clinic and at the University College London Hospital with a background in Oral and Maxillo-Facial surgery. Mr Kalavrezos is also the Lead Head and Neck Sarcoma Surgeon for the London Sarcoma Service. His clinical practice ranges from comprehensive diagnostic procedures for lumps and bumps and skin and mucosal changes of mouth, face and neck to major ablative and reconstructive surgery for the head and neck. In addition, Nicholas practices “scarless” face lift approaches for the salivary gland tumours while he covers the complete spectrum including thyroid surgery and facial trauma surgery.
Mr Kalavrezos’ research interests include applications of “tissue engineering”. He is a founding member of the “Centre for Reconstructive Surgery” at University College London. He has joint research projects in the Nanotechnology Lab of UCL on “tissue engineered bio-scaffolding” aiming to replace defects of the head and neck with tissue–engineered based micro-vascular flap reconstruction while all complex reconstructive cases are subject to pre-operative “virtual surgical planning”.
Lecturing regularly both nationally and internationally, Mr Kalavrezos holds the position of the Secretary General of the European Association for Cranio-Maxillofacial Surgery (EACMFS).
