Welcome letter from National Secretary ISAPS Peter Scott

Peter Scott - ISAPS

Dear Colleagues

As the local organising chairman of the ISAPS meeting South Africa, 20 -22 March 2015, I would like to invite you to join me in the Cape for this meeting.

This year by popular request we have returned to the Lord Charles Hotel and again they have promised to pull out all the stops to give us excellent conference facilities, trade area and quality food.

I have secured 2 excellent speakers:

  1. Renalto Saltz hails from Utah, USA. He is Vice President of ISAPS and Past President of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. He has a huge CV and is an excellent speaker. He also heads the ISAPS Visiting Professors Program and has offered to stay on an extra few days for a registrar Symposium to be hosted by Professor Frank Graewe, where they will be treated to lectures and live surgery.

  2. Our second speaker is Vakis Kontoes, from Athens, who is an ISAPS Professor and is also on the Visiting Professors Program. He is Nazim Cerkes’s second in charge in the ISAPS Educational Committee.

We plan a session on aesthetic breast reconstruction to be sponsored by Allergan and finally I would like to bring back our “My worst complication of last year” session as there is a lot to learn from problem solving these patients. Please scour your patient files to come up with a few cases.

As always, March is a perfect time to visit the Cape and I’m sure that you can add on a few days to enjoy their hospitality.

Our congress organiser is Hendrika Van Der Merwe and her email address for the congress is: congress.isaps@gmail.com.

Yours sincerely
