Mr Guido Köhler
Consultant Plastic Surgeon
FRCS Plast equi.
"Spire Healthcare provides a professional, efficient, friendly and safe environment for my patients and for me as a surgeon."
My main areas of expertise are cosmetic and reconstruction surgery and removal of small lesions such as warts, moles, cysts and basal cell carcinomas. I am also interested in weight loss surgery, which includes abdominoplasty, brachioplasty and breast reconstructive surgery - including augmentations, reductions and breast lifts.
It is important to me that all my patients have a good result, which meets their expectations and that they are happy. I enjoy getting to know my patients and to understand them.
I have been a consultant at the Norfolk & Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) since 2017, having completed plastic surgical residencies in Germany and I also trained in the USA. After being a board certified plastic surgeon in 2009, I worked as a consultant at the University of Würzburg, Germany. I also led a private clinic for aesthetic surgery and also opened my own practice. In the UK I have built-up my private practice at Spire Norwich Hospital, as well as my NHS practice at the NNUH.
I have volunteered for two-three weeks on board of the hospital ship 'Africa Mercy' in West Africa every year since 2002. Where I solely perform reconstructive procedures, such as severe burn contracture release, removal of large soft tissue tumours, hypospadias and congenital abnormalities.
Some of the principal treatments carried out by Mr Guido Köhler at Spire include:
Spire Norwich Hospital is only able to provide COVID-19 tests to patients undergoing surgery at our hospital. COVID-19 testing or antibody tests are not available as a standalone service.
License to practice medicine, medical doctor, plastic surgeon / Ludwig Maximilian University of Munich / 2002
Graduation from medical school and defence of the doctor's thesis as well as passing the board exam for plastic surgical
Before coming to the UK, I ran the private Schlosspark Klinik (a clinic solely for Plastic Surgery) as an employed consultant expanding my organisational skills. Being able to enlarge my skills in business and leadership was a privilege.
My outside interests are spending time with a wonderful family (one wife, three kids) and friends, doing sports (mountain/road biking, trekking, skiing, hunting), working with power tools (especially from Stihl) and music (piano and trumpet).
