Dear Colleagues and Friends,

 

On behalf of the Taiwan Oncoplastic Breast Surgery Society, it is my great pleasure and honor to extend my cordial welcome to every one joining the 2022 annual meeting, which is held on Dec 3-4, 2022 in a hybrid format; physically and virtually (oversea speakers) at HNBK International Convention Center in Taipei, Taiwan.

 

This year, the theme of TOPBS is “ Better Shape for Better Life”, with the goal of improving breast surgical technique for surgeons, hence improving the quality of life for the breast cancer patients.

 

The concept of oncoplastic breast surgery began in 1993 in the western countries, but the development of oncoplastic surgery in Asian countries started only in the past 10 - 12 years. 

 

In this meeting, we have invited expert surgeons in oncoplastic surgery from the UK and from the USA to share with us their techniques and experiences. On the other hand, we have also invited breast and plastic surgeons from our neighboring countries such as Singapore, Malaysia, Japan, and Korea. They will also share with us their experiences in developing oncoplastic breast surgery, as well as their respective educational programs to train the young surgeons. 

 

In this meeting we have included some controversial issues (topics) in a debate format, because we believe that the audience could derive inspiration from this open-minded-debate.   

 

  Look forward to your participation!

 

 

President, Taiwan Oncoplastic Breast Surgery Society
