Aim of Course

This course will explore in depth the novel oncoplastic approach to breast cancer surgery where plastic surgical techniques are used to improve the oncological and esthetic outcomes of breast cancer surgery.

The systematic approach will address topics from treatment planning through various oncoplastic surgical techniques, methods to improve surgical resection margins and improving patient satisfaction.

The course will provide a practical,workshop-based approach for surgeons to achieve the best cosmetic results in breast cancer surgery without compromising cancer surgery outcomes.
