Leading tissue bank partners with American Society of Plastic Surgeons at largest plastic surgery conference

Arlington Heights, Ill. - In one week, an estimated 4,500 attendees will descend upon San Diego for the industry's largest aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgery educational and networking event: Plastic Surgery The Meeting. The Meeting, hosted by the American Society of Plastic Surgeons (ASPS), welcomes MTF, the Musculoskeletal Transplant Foundation, as a Gold supporter.

The ASPS Premier Support program provides industry partners with increased visibility, additional benefits and greater recognition for their support at Plastic Surgery The Meeting. Partnering with ASPS provides unprecedented opportunities to communicate and engage with aesthetic and reconstructive plastic surgeons from around the world.

"MTF's support reinforces the impact that plastic surgery can have on people's lives. Their contribution extends beyond The Meeting to important patient education initiatives such as annual Breast Reconstruction Awareness Day. We're proud to have them join us at the premier conference for aesthetic and reconstructive surgery," said ASPS president Gregory Evans, MD.

Plastic Surgery The Meeting features the latest research, techniques and technology in cosmetic and reconstructive plastic surgery, and will have a reinvigorated focus on cosmetic surgery. More than 300 exhibitors will showcase cutting-edge products and services.

"MTF's sponsorship of The Plastic Surgery Meeting is in perfect alignment with our mission and core values. We recognize the importance of plastic and reconstructive surgery, and the impact these procedures can have on a patient's quality of life. MTF has enjoyed a strong partnership with the American Society of Plastic Surgeons over the past year and this sponsorship further solidifies our commitment to this specialty," said Bruce Stroever, CEO, MTF.

Noteworthy program improvements to Plastic Surgery The Meeting include:

  • Corporate non-CME programming opportunities will take place on Saturday and Sunday, along with additional new programs in the early morning and evening hours.
  • Residents Day is being expanded to welcome younger residents as well as offer practical clinical workshops on breast reconstruction and injectables
