7th Radboud Aesthetic & Reconstructive Round

Advances in Reconstructive Breast Surgery

March 22nd, 2019

 With Prof. dr. Fabio Santanelli di Pompeo, Rome, Italy


Dear esteemed colleagues,


I am proud to invite you to join the 7th Radboud Aesthetic & Reconstructive Round on March 22nd, 2019 in Nijmegen with the topic ‘Advances in Reconstructive Breast Surgery’.  


The concept of the Radboud Aesthetic & Reconstructive Rounds is to get hands-on training and lectures on selected topics in plastic surgery from national and international experts. At the same time, an open and frank discussion among the attending colleagues about our own problem cases and failures is strongly encouraged. The content is suitable for residents, but also for experienced plastic surgeons who want to expand and refine their surgical armamentarium.


It gives me great pleasure to welcome Prof. Fabio Santanelli di Pompeo from Rome, Italy, to our department. 

He is head of the Department of Plastic Surgery at Sant'Andrea Hospital in Rome and holds the Chair of Plastic Surgery at University Sapienza of Rome. His main interest is reconstructive microsurgery, with a special focus on breast reconstruction with DIEP flaps and Latissimus Dorsi flap procedures. Numerous publications, lectures, and book chapters illustrate his unique expertise in the area of reconstructive breast surgery.


His intense activity in this field led to the creation of the University Master Course on Breast Reconstruction at the School of Medicine and Psychology of Sapienza University of Rome in 2007. From 2009 he is also Chief of the Fellowship Experimental Laboratory for Vascular and Nerves Microsurgery at the Department of Biosciences, Tecnopolo, in Rome. His commitment and contribution to the scientific research in plastic surgery brought national and international recognition, with the consequent appointment as Secretary General of the European Association of Plastic Surgeons (EURAPS), since May 2014.


I look forward to welcoming you in Nijmegen to join an exciting hands-on training in reconstructive breast surgery and state-of-the-art lectures! 


Kind regards,


Dietmar Ulrich
