Atlanta, GA (PRWEB) January 03, 2013
Northside Hospital and The Southeastern Society of Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (SESPRS) are hosting the 29th Annual Breast Surgery Symposium. Chairman of the meeting, Dr. Mark Codner, states that this state of the art educational event is internationally recognized and attended by plastic surgeons from over 15 countries. The Atlanta meeting has become synonymous with the forefront of innovations in breast surgery since Dr. Carl Hartrampf, the original Founder of the meeting, held the first meeting almost 30 years ago. The co-chairs of the meeting Atlanta Plastic Surgeons James Namnoum, M.D., Albert Losken, M.D, and L. Franklyn Elliott, M.D. will present global advances in plastic surgery of the breast in the 2013 scientific program entitled Balance Without Bias.
In addition, the SESPRS has funded The Foreign Scholar Program which supports chief plastic surgery residents from around the world by bringing them to Atlanta to attend and be honored at the meeting. The 2013 Foreign Scholars are from South Korea and countries that have benefited from this program in the past include: Russia, Israel, New Zealand, Australia, China, Japan, Columbia, Costa Rica, Philippines, Italy, France, and Iraq.
The Symposium will feature The Honorary Hartrampf Guest Lecture, named after Atlanta breast reconstruction pioneer Dr. Carl Hartrampf who is credited for developing the TRAM Flap, one of the most innovative breast reconstruction techniques used by plastic surgeons today.
