A Team Approach to Oncoplastic Surgery

June 28-29, 2019
Hyatt Centric Magnificent Mile
Chicago, IL

Many oncoplastic surgery techniques are basic and can be mastered in a short time; others require advanced procedures that are ideally performed in partnership with a fellowship-trained plastic surgeon. The goal of this course is to enable participants to offer oncoplastic surgery to all of their patients and to differentiate those that can be done alone versus with a team-approach.

A CME Course sponsored by the TME Foundation
Co-directed by Barry Rosen, MD & Anne Peled, MD

Up to 16 hours of CME category 1 may be applied towards ASBS certification in Oncoplastic surgery, pending ASBS approval.
Limited spots available.

We encourage breast & plastic surgeons to attend together and will offer a $500 discount for "team" registration.

Team attendance is encouraged but not required. Any individual surgeon looking to incorporate oncoplastic surgery into their practice will benefit from the course.
