Balkan Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery Congress, 2019

Afisari: 623

The organization of a congress of the Balkan Association of Plastic Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery (BAPRAS) every two years became already a tradition. Founded in 1998 in Thessaloniki, BAPRAS has evolved during time, and now is in a process of improving its activities. According with the opinion of the member  societies and the new projects, it is almost sure that our society will change its name from BAPRAS to BASPRAS.
Our Society consolidates through a process of maturation, which is substantially founded upon the quality and number of contributions of the member nations. Such a contribution is brought, keeping each specific cultural makeup, within a common language and in the interest of a shared cultural and operational purpose.
The full integration of our Society in the European plastic surgery should represent one of the most heartfelt BAPRAS (BASPRAS) current objectives, and it will happen through the harmonization of the formative processes, research, study, information and accreditation in which our Society takes interest.
In the wish to continue the tradition of organizing very successfull  congresses, the Romanian plastic surgeons, hand surgeons and microsurgeons are honored to invite all the plastic surgeons from the Balkan area, and also from all over the world, to attend the 11th BAPRAS (BASPRAS) Congress, which will be organized in Cluj Napoca, Romania, between  May 9-11, 2019.
Cluj Napoca – the capital of Transilvania with its already famous for the Dracula Castle – is nowadays the second biggest town in Romania, and is wellknown for its cultural richness and hospitality.
The Program of the 11th Congress, under the title „Pushing the Borders in Plastic Surgery”, clearly expresses this assumption: it deals with the accomplishment in the field of plastic surgery did by prominent European and World plastic surgeons. The program, including instructional courses, panels, conferences, free papers will cover all the fields of modern plastic surgery. We will try to bring together plastic surgeons with long standing experience, which will offer pearls of their wisdom and creativity to the young and enthusiastic colleagues.
We will encourage our young colleagues to attend the congress, and, during the congress a contest will be organized for free papers and posters presented by residents only. There would be a best case award and a best young surgeon award.
It is in our hands, minds and hearts to mould an impressive future together!
We are looking forward to see you in Cluj Napoca, to share this wonderful scientific and social event!
