Welcoming leaders in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery

About Toronto Breast Surgery Symposium

The Toronto Annual Breast Surgery Symposium was started as a combined effort between the Division of Plastic Surgery and Reconstructive Surgery and The Continuing Medical Education Office at The University of Toronto. The first symposium took place in April 2001 and was held at Mount Sinai Hospital in downtown Toronto.

Entering its 20th year, we have already welcomed a variety of well-respected national and international leaders in aesthetic and reconstructive breast surgery as guest faculty. This year we will continue to cover current concepts and innovations in reconstructive and aesthetic breast surgery. Our guest faculty will present information in didactic lectures, video presentations, open panel discussions, and question and answer sessions.

Please visit the supporter recognition area of our site. The Toronto Breast Surgery Symposium would not be possible without the generous support of our corporate supporters.

We look forward to seeing you on Thursday, April 4, 2024.
