Course Introduction

Breast cancer affects as many as one in seven women in the Netherlands. Aided by advances in diagnostics and oncology, plastic surgeons can play a pivotal role in facilitating breast conservation therapy by applying oncoplastic techniques. 

 

During this intensive two-day course, experts from the field will share their knowledge and views on oncoplastic breast surgeryThe faculty will guide participants every step of the way, as they learn to plan and mark surgeries on live models, and carry out the dissections in the wet lab.  

 

The practical sessions will be performed on fresh frozen cadavers with four participants per specimen, and will cover the essential volume displacement and volume replacement techniques.
