2019 Annual Meeting

"Oncoplastics, How I Do It Now!" Video Project


A new video project of The American Society of Breast Surgeons (ASBrS) the “Oncoplastics, How I Do It Now!” video project. We would like to welcome graduates of the Society’s Beginner and Intermediate Oncoplastic Surgery Courses from 2015-2018. The goal of this new video program is to give recent oncoplastic surgery course graduates the opportunity to demonstrate new oncoplastic surgery procedures that they have learned and integrated into practices.

The “Oncoplastics, How I Do It Now!” video session is being conducted in addition to the annual “How I Do It” video session, which each year has featured novel procedures, tips or tricks for standard procedure, or new approaches to clinical problems. Selected “Oncoplastics, How I Do It Now!” videos will be presented at the 2019 Annual Meeting during a special video session and might also be selected for inclusion in the ASBrS Online Video Library. Videos will be peer-reviewed by the Society’s Oncoplastic Surgery Working Group.

Please email any questions regarding the submission process to pbunn@breastsurgeons.org or call 877-992-5470 (M-F 8:30 am– 5:00 pm ET).
