Background information

The Prof. Guido Matton Fund was set up by Mrs. Maria Matton and Prof. Phillip Blondeel, in memory of Prof. Guido Matton. It is a tribute to the many great contributions made by Prof. Matton to the field of reconstructive and aesthetic plastic surgery during his busy career.


The aim the of the Fund is to provide financial support to award one six-month fellowship every year to a promising young plastic surgeon from Belgium, immediately following their graduation. The fellowship takes place in the Department of Plastic Surgery of the Ghent University Hospital, originally established by Prof. Guido Matton. 

During the fellowship, the selected candidate gets the chance to gain experience in the regeneration and reconstruction of human tissue, and in techniques for plastic and reconstructive surgery that they have not encountered previously, or in which they want to gain more experience. The selected candidate will participate in the daily surgical activity within the Department of Plastic Surgery.
