Welcome Message

Hello to all members of the Korean Association of Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons (KAMPRS).
You reap the efforts you sow in this prosperous season of fall. A festival of academic achievements and sharing vast knowledge accumulated over the year – I take it as my great honor to see the Pusan National University Dental School hosting the “58th Congress of Korean Association of Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons” at the International Convention Center, Busan Port.

KAMPRS, since its foundation in 1962, has been making strenuous education and research efforts in maxillofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery, on top of various symposiums and volunteer activities to develop our association. The annual congress provides a platform for the members’ academic and latest trend exchange via lectures. I am confident you will enjoy your time during the congress as the world academic trends are shared throughout our events.

Under the theme “RESPECT for Knowledge” the lecture, invited lecture, and symposium will bring prominent scholars to you for in-depth discussions and lecture sessions. I also look forward to the oral presentations many members will deliver based on their precious clinical experience and research data. Your sharing of thoughts will engage us in broad exchange of knowledge for many in-depth topics.

Dr. Farhad Naini will deliver his invited lecture on “Clinical diagnosis of the orthognathic patients: current concepts and perspectives”, followed by a meeting session.
On the second and third day of the congress, “Healthcare Insurance Seminar” and Memorial Lecture will be presented respectively by Dr. Pil Hoon Choung.

As I end my greetings, I sincerely appreciate all of our guest speakers from Korea and Overseas, as well as all of the KAMPRS members for their participation despite their busy schedule.
I would also like to extend my gratitude to the council members, Pusan National University Dental School’s Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons, and my alumnus for all their hard work in successfully hosting this year’s congress.

I wish the best for your family, good health, and happiness.
Thank you.

Shin, Sang-hun
