Mr Teo graduated in medicine from the University of Aberdeen in 1982, where he was awarded a distinction in anatomy and surgery. At Harvard University in Boston, USA, his post-doctoral thesis on burn injuries was awarded the Cash Medal for the best thesis. He initially trained for 8 years in general surgery in the Aberdeen Hospitals, after which he completed another 8 years of plastic surgery training in a number of centres including St Thomas’ Hospital in London and The Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead.
He completed several fellowships with world famous and revolutionary plastic surgeons such as J. Mustarde in Ghana, M. Tonkin in Australia and F.C. Wei in Taiwan. This extensive and extremely broad training has helped to develop Mr Teo’s human, medical and surgical skills which enable him to face to the most difficult cases in any field of Plastic, Aesthetic and Reconstructive surgery. Since 1998, he has worked as a consultant at the Queen Victoria Hospital in East Grinstead, where he performs a wide range of plastic surgery operations and trains many future plastic surgeons.
