The previous 3 AWR Europe meetings have represented a fertile meeting ground for both general and plastic surgeons so that together, we can continue to make rapid advances in surgical techniques and procedures, for the benefit of our patients.
AWR Europe 2019 aims to build on the success of these meetings, and provide a further forum for learning, discussion and comparison. Our aim is to inspire and illuminate clinicians and para-surgical professionals with the diversity of this emerging field, and the philosophy and methods that we can apply to our practice.
A combination of plenary lectures, technique videos, debates and panel discussions will ensure maximum coverage of the subject areas so that you can leave feeling inspired and armed with new knowledge that you can apply to your practice.
Finally, there will be plenty of time to network with your peers through regular discussion periods, networking receptions and social functions.
We hope that you can join us!
