Additional Info:


An interactive symposium designed for plastic surgeons involved in cosmetic and reconstructive surgery.


This exclusive symposium is only being offered to a small group of plastic surgeons nationwide who are engaged in both cosmetic and reconstructive abdominal wall surgery. Our nationally and internationally recognized faculty will include professors from top leading academic institutions. Surgeons will be asked to participate in a survey and provide their professional feedback to enhance the evening dinner discussions. At the conclusion of the symposium, all survey information will be disseminated throughout BDI Surgery’s internal leadership teams for evaluation. The evening portion of the conference will include an exchange of ideas between both faculty and peers with discussions focusing on the collective clinical experience.
Surgeons will have the opportunity to participate in a hands-on bioskills lab under the direct supervision of faculty. 
This symposium covers an extraordinary amount of information using a variety of learning modalities. This will be an exceptional educational experience for all that attend.
