Personal profile

Biography

Dr. Suami (MD, PhD) trained in Japan as a reconstructive microsurgeon. He was admitted to the Japan Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery in 1999. Dr Suami started lymphatic research in 2001 when he worked in the Reconstructive Microsurgery Research Unit at the University of Melbourne, Australia. Dr Suami developed a novel radiographic technique to demonstrate the lymphatic system in a cadaver model in 2003 and in 2005 he was awarded the Basic Science Award from the Plastic Surgery Education Foundation in the USA. In 2009, Dr Suami joined the Department of Plastic Surgery at the MD Anderson Cancer Centre in Houston, Texas as Assistant Professor and a director of the microsurgery research centre. Here he developed a large animal model for lymphoedema and assisted with indocyanine green fluorescence lymphography in over 250 surgical lymphoedema cases. Dr Suami was recruited to the Faculty of Medicine and Health Sciences at Macquarie University in 2015 and works with the Australian Lymphatic Education, Research and Treatment (ALERT).
