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.
Dear Members of the Korean Association of Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgeons!
I sincerely congratulate the hosting of the 58th congress of the Koreana ssociation of maxillofacial plastic and reconstructive surgeons by Pusan National University Dental School in this bright season of autumn. Our senior surgeons, with their gifted foresight, founded the Korean association of maxillofacial plastic and reconstructive surgeons (KAMPRS) in 1962. Since its founding, KAMPRS has continued to develop the field of maxillofacial plastic and reconstructive surgery. Thanks to dedicated efforts from our members, we founded the Orthognathic Institute, and we have been hosting maxillofacial plastic workshops regularly to provide plastic surgery guidelines for the members as well as the dentists. Our association’s journal “Maxillofacial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery” is gaining wide popularity around the globe.
This year’s congress will be hosted from 31 October to 2 November at Busan Port International Convention Center. The theme for this year’s congress is “Respect for Knowledge” – focused on our members’ recent areas of interests. Overseas guest speakers include Dr. Bryan Bell, Dr. George Sandor, Dr. Farhad Naini, and Dr. Lian Ma. Korean speakers are Professor Kim, Jae-seung and Professor Lee, Jong-ho. Our guest speakers will share their insight on advanced diagnosis methods and operation with emphasis on orthognathic surgery and head and neck tumor/reconstruction. As always, we are joined by symposium speakers and delegations of organizations that have sister relationship with KAMPRS – Japanese Society for Jaw Deformity, Taiwanese Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, and National Hospital of Odontostomatology in Hanoi.
Orthognathic Institute hosts a symposium oriented towards mandibular protrusion. Also, Professor Jeong, Pil-hun is delivering a special lecture commemorating his retirement – all interested members may join the special lecture. Each and every segment of the entire itinerary are significant, but what I find most meaningful is that this congress provides a venue for all members to get together and engage in academic exchange while sharing friendship. I hope all the members enjoy their time to the fullest during this academic festival.
I wholeheartedly appreciate all guest speakers and symposium speakers for accepting this invitation despite their busy schedules. I also thank all the members who have taken their time to be here. Dr. Shin, Sang-hoon and the staff from Pusan National University Dental School’s members of Maxillofacial Surgery – thank you for all your hard work in successfully hosting this year’s congress. I also want to convey my gratitude to the executive members of our association, as well as all members of organizations that took part in this year’s exhibition.
I have no doubt that the 58th congress of the Korean association of maxillofacial plastic and reconstructive surgeons will be successful. I wish good health and happiness to all participants.
