VIVIANA GÓMEZ ORTEGA

Position: Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeon PIEL PARA RENACER

“I am a specialist in Maxillofacial Reconstructive Aesthetic Plastic Surgery and the hand of the Military University New Granada, and superspecialist in craniofacial surgery of the University Foundation of Health Sciences. Combining science and art in plastic, aesthetic and reconstructive surgery is increasingly difficult. Without scientific knowledge, compassion has no meaning, but scientific knowledge without humanism transforms us into mere mechanics of the profession. The work in the foundation allows to be a scientist and artist simultaneously, but a scientist and artist different from any other, since science and art in plastic surgery do not antagonize but complement each other”.
