Special Award from the Voice

The Warsaw Voice has decided to hand a Special Award for 2013 to Prof. Adam Maciejewski, a Polish surgeon who, together with a team of colleagues, has performed the world’s first face transplant in order to save a patient’s life.

The Voice has decided to hand out a Special Award for the first time in its 25-year history. We are doing so in order to highlight a breakthrough achievement in surgery that was noticed around the world.

On May 15, 2013, a team of surgeons under Prof. Maciejewski successfully performed the operation—the first face transplant in the history of Polish medicine—at the Marie Sk│odowska-Curie Institute of Oncology in the southern city of Gliwice. The operation demonstrates that Polish medicine, and especially transplant surgery, is setting the pace internationally.

The Voice aims to help international readers understand today’s Poland. Over the years we have earned a reputation as a reliable source of information about this country and the region. We follow the same high standards in giving out our awards.

Prof. Maciejewski and his team are at the forefront of their highly specialized medical field. They have achieved this position thanks to their determination, talent, hard work and, no less important, their organizational skills. I hope our award will encourage them to explore new avenues and set an example that others will follow.
