Nigel Mercer, Consultant Plastic Surgeon and President of BAPRAS:

“The British Association of Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgeons (BAPRAS) and the Reconstructive Surgery Trials Network (RSTN) are encouraging the next generation of surgeons to get actively involved in research through their efforts and by signing up to AllTrials.

You cannot be a modern surgeon without any knowledge of what is good or bad research and both BAPRAS and RSTN fully support the publication of all well performed, ethical research no matter what the findings show, positive or negative.

BAPRAS’ own Journal (JPRAS) is acknowledged as one of the best in the world for plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery and we fully support clarity and openness in medical research. It is essential to the future of plastic surgery and we are very proud to support AllTrials.”
