Dear Colleagues and Friends,
It is a matter of great privilege and honour for me to invite you to the holy city of Amritsar for 15th Biennial Conference of the “Indian Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery” to be held from 20th March to 22nd March, 2020. In recent years reconstructive microsurgery is fast expanding not only into new territories but is also stretching its limits further in the traditional microsurgery fields of replantations, revascularisations and free tissue transfer for post traumatic and post excisional composite tissue defects. Successful hand transplantations done by our colleagues at Kochi and Chennai has ignited interest in composite tissue transplantation amongst Indian microvascular surgeons and we are looking forward to other centres taking up this challenging task. Management of Lymphoedema with the use of microsurgery is another exciting field for the microvascular surgeons and some centres in India have already started doing it. Post Mastectomy Breast Reconstruction has been a rarity in our country but with increasing awareness amongst patients, microsurgical breast reconstruction is picking up in a big way.
In line with the "Expanding Horizons" theme of the conference, we have invited national and international experts in all these fields of reconstructive microsurgery sharing their rich experience in their respective areas of interest for the benefit of experienced as well as young microvascular surgeons.
For encouraging participation by PG students and young plastic surgeons (less than 5 years of PG) Best Paper Session and Best Poster Presentation have been planned with prize money of Rs. 10,000/- and Rs. 5,000/- respectively.
Looking forward to see all of you in ISRM 2020 in large numbers!
