Remembering Dr. Wolf Losken

Remembering Dr. Wolf Losken

We recently lost Dr. Wolf Losken, a dedicated Alliance for Smiles surgeon and educator. Wolf volunteered on many surgical missions, and was instrumental in training local surgeons at our Treatment Centers in Harbin, Jiujiang, and Wenzhou China.

AfS co-founder Anita Stangl offers the following remembrance:

Wolf was a fantastic human being, a brilliant surgeon, and wonderful teacher.  He was also a dedicated family man. I met Wolf on the first AfS mission to Jiujiang China. He brought with him his star third year resident, Dr. Sumeet Teotia, who himself went on to became a dedicated AfS volunteer.

Throughout the history of AfS he went on a number of missions and mentored many Chinese plastic surgeons both during and after the missions, taking whatever time it took to teach them. He was frequently accompanied by his lovely wife Daisy who worked wonders with the children in the pediatric unit.

Dr. Losken will be remembered by so many AfS volunteers and the loss of him is felt by all of us.
