"I chose the specialty of plastic and reconstructive surgery because of the wide variety of both illnesses and problems that I encounter and that we are able to treat. It is exciting to be able to offer a reconstructive algorithm to patients in order to treat their medical conditions."

''Dr Ljung is very caring, answered all my questions. I had a surgical procedure done by Dr Ljung and could not be happier with the outcome. His staff is very caring and supportive. Definitely recommend for any cosmetic or plastic surgery needs.''
