Dr Peter Sylaidis

Peter also holds a postgraduate Diploma in Head and Neck Surgery from the University of South Paris and a Master of Surgery from the University of Adelaide.

He has written over twenty publications, including seventeen as first author. Additionally, he co-authored a CD-ROM entitled Practical Skin Wound Management as a learning tool for students, trainees and GPs.

Peter operates at Burnside Hospital and Adelaide Day Surgery. He has been a volunteer surgeon with Interplast, a not-for-profit organisation established between the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and Rotary to provide free plastic surgery services in developing countries.

At Adelaide Plastic Surgery, Peter provides all types of cosmetic, plastic and reconstructive surgical procedures. His sub-speciality interest lies in head and neck plastic surgery, and he established the first service in Adelaide dedicated to those with facial paralysis.

Outside of his work, Peter’s family is his main interest, with a wife, two daughters, home and garden. His other daily co-existing interest is the study of esoteric philosophies, such as Advaita Vedanta (the basic premise of non-duality unity). When opportunities arise, he loves mountain trekking, scuba diving and skiing.

In partnership with his colleagues at Adelaide Plastic Surgery, he provides a comprehensive, 24/7 emergency plastic-surgical service.
