A Dame We Knew
A tribute to Dame Cecily Pickerill
This is a story about the life and times of Dame Cecily Pickerill, a pioneering New Zealand plastic surgeon who operated on many hundreds of infants with cleft problems.
Along with her husband she believed in the early repair for a thriving baby. She did not use a series of nurses for this but the babies’ own mothers, whose immunity they passed to their infants and whose love covered 24 hour care, seven days a week, no problems, no ‘H Bug’.
The many stories are written by many people who knew her and appreciated her care.
