In his inspirational keynote, Borsuk will talk about the pearls and pitfalls that he has learned during the development of bespoke facial restorative surgeries.
Borsuk will take the audience on a journey centered around how microsurgical, aesthetic, and craniomaxillofacial techniques, combined with vascularized composite facial allotransplantation and cutting-edge surgical simulation, have transformed the field restorative surgery, empowering surgeons to offer patients individualized comprehensive facial treatment plans—with often-astonishing results for the patient.
"Our job is to give hope to those who live with facial deformities. Our job is to inspire those around us to face the world with confidence and a bolstered feeling of self-worth."
Daniel Borsuk is the chief of the Division of Plastic Surgery at the Université de Montreal Pediatric teaching hospital Sainte-Justine in Montreal, Quebec. Teaching and learning with surgical residents and medical students in attempting to offer patients the gold standard of health care through the combination of science, technology, engineering, and art are his passion.
