Dear Colleagues,

It is our great pleasure to invite you to register for the Barcelona Breast Meeting (BBM 2020) held in Hospital de Sant Pau, Barcelona on March 12th-13th, 2020.

We have an exciting scientific program that we are sure you will find dynamic and diverse. The focus for 2020 is the searching for the ideal results with maximum patient safety, with Faculty from all over the world providing their expertise, tips and tricks on surgical technique.

We are planning to do live surgery to highlight trends and innovations in these fields and there will be a video-surgery session showing tips and tricks of some of the leading world experts. We know you will find this year´s program particularly motivating and inspiring.

In conjunction with the Breast Meeting 2020 this year we are holding the 9th World Symposium on Lymphedema Surgery (WSLS).

.

We are organizing this symposium together with Prof. David Chang (Chicago University Hospital) and Prof. Ming Huei Cheng (Chang Gun Memorial Hospital) and Prof Isao Koshima (Hiroshima Hospital) who will discuss the indications for this highly complex procedure and present the techniques used and progress to date.

Spring is a perfect time to visit Barcelona and we look forward to helping you have an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Yours sincerely,

J. Farhadi & J. Masià
