He then elected to undertake a year of further training in Toronto, Canada, working with the two world leaders in Facial Reanimation Surgery and gained further experience in Cosmetic Surgery and Microsurgery. He was asked to co-author a chapter for the major Plastic Surgery text book. This chapter has been reproduced in other textbooks and is still the recognised reference for Plastic Surgery trainees.
