Plastic Surgery 11 THE Meeting

The Plastic Surgery Education Network (PSEN) was everywhere at Plastic Surgery 11 THE Meeting.  PSEN recorded dozens of lectures and panels, videotaped clinical news interviews with many of the presenters and maintained a demonstration booth to show surgeons the new online education website in the Exhibit Hall. The annual scientific meeting of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), Plastic Surgery Foundation (PSF) and American Society of Maxillofacial Surgeons (ASMS) was held September 23-27, 2011 in Denver. Nearly 4,700 physicians, staff, allied medical personnel, and more attended the meeting to discuss the hot topics, technologies and latest research in plastic surgery. From body contouring after bariatric surgery to breast augmentation to hand rejuvenation to robotics, the scope of the meeting was as wide as the specialty.

More presentations and courses based on select lectures for CME credit will be released in the weeks to come.

New Surgery Spotlight: SIEA Flap Breast Reconstruction

The November Surgery Spotlight program is now live on PSEN. This month our exclusive HD video program features David H. Song, MD, MBA demonstrating SIEA Flap Breast Reconstruction.

Dr. David H. Song is Vice Chairman of the department of surgery and Chief of plastic and reconstructive surgery at The University of Chicago Medical Center. He specializes in breast reconstruction and oncoplastic surgery.

Surgery Spotlight is a monthly video-based activity produced by the PSEN. The series of surgical videos aim to put you in the operating room with the demonstrating surgeon. Watch the advantages of this technique (vs. the free-TRAM or DIEP), and tell us what you think!

The full-length surgical videos can be purchased and viewed for CME credit, or a shorter version can be viewed for free on PSEN.
