The Kenya Society of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (KSPRAS) was established in 2006 and is the leading Plastic Surgery organization in Kenya. The society collaborates with the relevant government bodies in oversight and licensing of Plastic Surgery Practice in Kenya.
The founder Chairman was Dr Bernard Mwangi Githae and the second chairman was Professor Stanley Ominde Khainga.
On Thursday 26th May 2022 at White Sands Resort in Mombasa, I stepped into the big shoes of my two predecessors as the third KSPRAS Chairman and together with the KSPRAS Executive and members we continue to work hard to propel the society to great heights. The society’s mission is to ensure safe and high quality client care, advocacy and facilitation of research and Continuous Medical Education (CMEs) for its members.
Membership is restricted to local or international plastic surgeons and plastic surgery trainees (Residents/Registrars). The number of KSPRAS members continues to grow every year with addition of both locally and internationally trained plastic surgeons.
The scientific conference is usually a prominent feature of the KSPRAS events calendar and in 2023 the Pre-Conference Workshop and 7th Scientific Conference will be held at Sarova Imperial Hotel in Kisumu from 23rd to 26th May 2023. The society’s other main activity is the outreach program during which reconstructive surgery services are taken closer to the people through collaboration with local government, mission and private hospitals as well as Non-Governmental Organizations (NGOs).
A good number of our members are also proficient in a wide array of aesthetic (cosmetic) procedures and operations and we are pleased to note that a significant volume of the local and regional demand for cosmetic surgery is now being taken care of locally. The KSPRAS member skill base includes inter alia; Hand Surgery, Microvascular Surgery, Craniofacial Surgery (Including Cleft Surgery), Breast augmentation/reduction/lift, Abdominoplasty, Rhinoplasty, Hair Transplantation, Clitoroplasty, Vulvo-Vaginal Rejuvenation, and Non-Surgical Aesthetic procedures (e.g. Facial rejuvenation with Botox/Fillers).
On behalf of the Kenyan Plastic Surgery fraternity, I welcome you to this website and I hope you will patronize our members’ services and give us feedback.
