Welcome address

The German Society of Plastic and Reconconstructive Surgery DGPW takes pride in announcing the launch of our new scientific online journal "GMS Interdisciplinary Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery DGPW" at the beginning of our 50th anniversary.

Our main focus has always been the interdisciplinary discussion of plastic and reconstructive aspects of surgery.

DGPW today therefore represents 700 members from all surgical areas of expertise interested in reconstruction of trauma or tumor related defects, deformities and malfunctions.

According to our philosophy the new journal offers a platform for presentation and discussion for a wide range of surgical topics.

For our launch articles on urological, gynaecological, bariatric, septic, traumatological and abdomino-surgical topics have been submitted, reviewed and are now available for open access.

More papers are being reviewed at the moment and will be avialable soon.

I invite and encourage all our readers to submit original and review articles for publication.

With my best wishes for 2012
Ralf H. Gahr
Editor-in-Chief/General Secretary DGPW
