Academic background

Miss Cerovac subspecialises in hand and wrist and aesthetic surgery. She has held a substantive NHS post at St George’s Hospital since 2008 and is currently the Lead Consultant for the Department of Plastic Surgery.

Her specialist skills focus on aesthetic, hand and wrist surgery.

Sonja’s cosmetic practice is focused on operative rejuvenation of the face, breast and body, but she also offers patients non-surgical treatments with dermal fillers and botulinum toxin injections. Skin surgery, soft tissue reconstruction and scar revisions are integral part of her practice and she welcomes prompt service for removal of skin cancers and benign lumps.

Within her NHS job at St George’s Hospital, one of the largest trauma centres in the country, Sonja regularly looks after patients with complex hand and wrist problems, life and limb threatening injuries and infections. Due to her cross speciality training, she is versatile with techniques of microsurgery as well as wrist arthroscopy (keyhole surgery). She is keen and flexible to see and treat patients with acute trauma at the short notice whenever possible, to avoid difficulties in management of late, missed injuries.

Following graduation from the Medical School at Belgrade University in Serbia, Sonja commenced her surgical training at busy general and plastic surgery units there. After moving to the UK in 1995, she completed the South London Plastic Surgery Specialist Rotation and focused further career on cosmetic and hand surgery. Sonja was awarded a title of Master in Surgical Science for her postgraduate research thesis in the field of flexor tendon surgery from the University of London in 1999. She accomplished aesthetic surgery fellowship at the McIndoe Surgical Centre in East Grinstead, orthopaedic wrist training at Wrightington Hospital in Wigan and hand fellowship at Windsor Hand Clinic in 2008.
