This workshop will provide participants with the opportunity to learn oncoplastic breast surgical procedures. This 100% hands-on cadaveric workshop focuses on a combination of surgical techniques which aim to provide best aesthetic outcomes with optimal surgical treatment and management of breast cancer.
This workshop also provides a focus on anatomical dissection and enhances knowledge of oncoplastic surgical anatomy, including the preservation of nerves and vessels.The workshop will use a combination of pre-reading, discussion and dissection in a supportive, stress-free environment without the time pressures of the clinical setting. Participants will have access to hands-on training in small groups under the guidance of expert faculty, with only two participants per surgical station.
It is particularly beneficial to those who have had limited exposure to procedures in the clinical setting.
