Coming up at the end of October, Dr. Franklyn Elliott will be attending Plastic Surgery The Meeting from October 26th-30th in New Orleans. This annual conference will feature numerous panels and lectures about plastic and reconstructive surgery, scientific paper sessions, small group interactive sessions, and instructional courses.
Dr. Elliott enjoys both attending and participating in various plastic surgery events. Just this past summer he was able to travel to Rome and Uzbekistan to share his passion for teaching with other surgeons about the latest plastic and reconstructive breast surgery techniques and technology.
In New Orleans, Dr. Elliott will be part of the event’s panel discussing comprehensive breast reconstruction. This three hour course will review all methods of breast reconstruction, including latissimus reconstruction, implant reconstruction and TRAM flap reconstruction. Other topics that will be discussed during the course include patient selection, management of complications, and methods for secondary correction including nipple-areolar reconstruction.
Dr. Elliott finds these conferences important as they provide the opportunity for plastic surgeons from all over to share thoughts and ideas to continually improve the plastic surgery field. He is looking forward to interacting with colleagues, sharing his knowledge, and will be sure to report the highlights when he returns from The Big Easy.
