Mr Chatterjee moved to North America to undertake a 1 Year Post-CCT Breast Reconstruction Fellowship at the University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada in 2014-2015 which also afforded further cosmetic surgery experience.  Being dual fellowship trained has afforded Mr Chatterjee a breadth of expertise.
