I want to thank Dr. Yadranko Ducic for serving as guest editor for this issue of Seminars in Plastic Surgery on “Skull Base Reconstruction”. We also appreciate the efforts made by each outstanding author for sharing with us their knowledge.

Dr. Yadranko Ducic was born in the former Yugoslavia and moved with his parents to Canada at the age of 6. He grew up in the beautiful city of Ottawa, the capital of Canada, where he completed much of his training. He moved to the United States to complete a Fellowship in Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery at the University of Minnesota. Dr Ducic then moved to the Dallas–Fort Worth Metroplex.

Dr. Ducic is a plastic surgeon in Fort Worth, Texas and is affiliated with multiple hospitals in the area, including Baylor All Saints Medical Center at Fort Worth and Methodist Medical Center at Dallas. He received his medical degree from the University of Ottawa, Faculty of Medicine and has been in practice for more than 20 years. He is board certified in both Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery and Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery.

He has published a large number of articles in the fields of cosmetic surgery (including rhinoplasty, chin augmentation, face lift, lip augmentation, laser resurfacing, and ear shaping surgery), reconstructive surgery (including several different flaps to assist in restoring the face and neck), maxillofacial trauma, and skull base surgery (including various approaches to access lesions of the skull base as well as several techniques to optimize appearance postoperatively).

Dr. Yadro has four children: Aleksa, Luka, Nikola, and Nadia. Dr. Ducic enjoys spending time with his family and likes sports and travelling.
