LEADING INTERNATIONAL HAIR RESTORATION SURGERY ORGANIZATION HOSTS WORLD LIVE SURGERY WORKSHOP IN DUBAI
Dubai Healthcare City, UAE (February 21, 2018) The International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery (ISHRS), the leading authority on hair loss treatment and restoration with more than 1,100 members throughout 70 countries worldwide, will host the 2018 World Live Surgery Workshop (www.2018wlswdubai.org/2018WLSWDubai/) for surgeons and physicians both experienced and new to the hair restoration surgery field. The live surgery workshop will be held at the American Academy of Cosmetic Surgery Hospital, the ISHRS’s partnering hospital, in Dubai Healthcare City, UAE, from March 8-10.
The program will provide an intensive educational experience. A faculty of more than 35 leading experts will teach state of the art of hair restoration, including more than 20 international guest surgeons, who are leaders in the field, demonstrating techniques during live surgeries. There will be five simultaneous surgeries in operating theaters on each day in which attendees may freely rotate to observe.
“It is important now more than ever for both physicians and consumers to recognize the value of trained, qualified hair restoration surgeons. Education provided through the ISHRS helps to ensure these surgeons have the appropriate education to safely and effectively treat hair loss,” said Switzerland-based Conradin von Albertini, MD, FISHRS, Chair, 2018 World Live Surgery Workshop.
“Far too often we see patients approach our members for help, after suffering from the work of an unqualified professional. Educational programs such as the World Live Surgery Workshop improve outcomes for both physicians and patients,” he added.
