Breast cancer : Oncologic and reconstructive surgery
and web event

European Institute of Oncology - IEO
March 21st and 22nd, 2017

We will not be organizing our traditional breast surgery course during June 2016, as we have decided to unite all our efforts to organize a “mega” course in Milan, on March 21st and 22nd, 2017.

The programme will be composed of two full days of live surgery (from 8 am to 6 pm) using two or three operating rooms in order to cover all the surgical techniques in breast cancer treatments including breast reconstruction and aesthetic surgery.

  • Sentinel node biopsy and axillary dissection.
  • Conservative breast cancer surgery and bilateral oncoplastic reshaping
  • Nipple sparing mastectomy and immediate breast reconstruction with implants or tissue expander.
  • Immediate breast reconstruction with implants and ADM.
  • Delayed breast reconstruction with implants
  • Tissue expander replacement and nipple and areola reconstruction.
  • Reduction and augmentation mammaplasty
  • Poland Syndrome treatment.
  • Mastectomy and implant reconstruction in robotic technology. new entry!
  • Lymphaticovenous anastomosis for lymphedema treatment. new entry!

There will be three different types of registrations that you will be able to choose from, that will allow you to participate and follow our course:

1. Join us at IEO

Our “On Site” course: held at the European Institute of Oncology, organized with our chairmen (Werner Audretsch and Jean Yves Petit), this is the more traditional way of following the course, where you watch our surgeries in HD transmission in the fully equipped meeting room at the EIO and are able to take part in “live” discussion with our experts. During the changeover of the surgical patients in the operating theatre, our chairmen will show you few relevant presentations and also short edited videos to clarify the surgical technical aspects.

2. Attend the course from your country

A “Satellite Course”: if you would like to organize a parallel course in your country, in your institution or another venue, connecting to our transmissions and discussions using internet, this is the option for you. This modality also offers the possibility of a complete integration with our course, participating in discussions and sending questions to the invited faculty and surgeons through internet applications. It would also be very interesting to suggest that you invite few “local” experts to stimulate the various discussions. After the end of the course, the surgeries with be edited and all the “Satellite Course” participants will be given a free access to use for the duration of one year to watch the surgeries whenever they want.

3. Watch from your private device

A “Private Course Connection”: this option will supply registration to allow you to follow the course using your own private computer or iPad. The connection also allows you to participate during the discussion times with questions sent by you to the invited faculty and surgeons using an internet application. After the end of the course, the surgeries will be edited and all the “Private Course Connection” participants will be given an access code to use for the duration of one year to watch the surgeries whenever they want.

I would be very pleased to have you join us during the “On Site” residential course in Milan next year, but I want to remind you that the internet transmission was tested last year during our annual course with an excellent quality of the video conference webcast. This means that if you cannot join us personally in Milan, the other options that are suggested are excellent solutions that allow you to follow our course, from a distance, but strongly connected to us by internet.

I send my very best regards and am available for any queries you may have regarding the 2017 Live Surgery course.
