Dr. De Meyere studied medicine at the Katholieke Universiteit van Leuven, graduating in 1987. He spent three years training in general surgery and then trained in Plastic Surgery in Leuven (B), Chepstow (G.B.) and Nice (F).
From 1994 to 2004 he worked as a plastic surgeon for three hospitals in and around Ghent and for five years he was the only plastic surgeon working at Mediconsult, a private clinic in Haarlem (NL). During this period he gradually built up his own private clinic in Ghent.
As the workload of this private clinic grew, he gradually cut back on his hospital work. Since August 2004 Dr. De Meyere has been working exclusively in his own clinic, which now goes by the name of Artemedis.
Artemedis was the first centre in Belgium to carry out all cosmetic surgical procedures under total intravenous anaesthesia or TIVA, a technique that has been used as standard for day surgery for more than 10 years in the United States.
Dr. De Meyere receives all consultations and carries out all treatments and follow-up checks in person and can be contacted day and night if problems arise.
