Mayo Clinic Chang Gung

Symposium 2016

October 19-22, 2016  |  Munich


Dear colleagues and friends,

Dear industry participants,


As course directors and local hosts, it is our pleasure and privilege to welcome you to the 6th Mayo Clinic Chang Gung Symposium in RECONSTRUCTIVE SURGERY, which will be held in Munich Germany October 19-22, 2016. This Symposium has been organized as a collaboration between Mayo Clinic & Chang Gung Memorial Hospital since 2009 and it has become one of the most prestigious and scientifically invigorating meetings in the field of reconstructive surgery. Until now, this Symposium has been held in the USA and Asia.


In 2016 this meeting will be the first time it will be held in Europe. Munich is a cosmopolitan city with an exceptional infrastructure.  It offers its guests a unique atmosphere and well-known welcoming hospitality.  Based on an excellent transportation system the city can be easily reached from everywhere. In 2010, Monocle ranked Munich as the world's most livable city.


The scientific program will focus on new developments in plastic, reconstructive, craniofacial and for the first time in aesthetic surgery especially in the multidisciplinary setting of regenerative medicine from diagnosis to state-of-the-art of less invasive treatment approaches. This meeting will offer a great faculty from the fields of reconstructive surgery, craniofacial surgery and for the first time keynote lectures in aesthetic procedures giving the platform for scientific exchange and discussion. We would like to present the way to achieve excellence in function and aesthetics through reconstructive surgery.


It is well known that this Symposium offers a great opportunity for all of us to update our knowledge, meet up with friends and colleagues, old and new, and enjoy each other’s company. This is the best occasion to prepare the soil for fruitful scientific co-operation in the field of plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic surgery.


Apart from the exciting scientific schedule, you will certainly have the opportunity to get a taste of Munich’s artistic and cultural richness and exciting concerts, impressive exhibitions, culinary delights, sports events and excellent shopping. There is more to Munich than meets the eye!


We look forward to spending some inspiring days with you.
