The Kentucky Society of Plastic Surgeons annual meeting

This past week, as President of the Kentucky Society of Plastic Surgeons, I was responsible for arranging and running the yearly meeting here in Louisville.I spent a fair amount of time organizing a fun and informative learning opportunity for the residents of UK and UL as well as the academic and private practice plastic surgeons from around the state.I had visiting a plastic surgeon from my alma mater at Duke, a Ph.D. from Santa Barbara and practice consultant from Ohio all make outstanding presentations to a record crowd.It was so nice to hear many compliments from my peers about what a great meeting experience it was.One of the lectures that I devised was a panel where difficult plastic surgery problems were addressed by several surgeons from around the state.In our specialty, there is often many solutions to a given problem and that is where the “art” of plastic surgery lies.We did have a little scare for our dinner plans which were scheduled for a steakhouse near my office.Apparently, there was no power at that establishment.It was Ryder Cup week in Louisville and most restaurants that could accommodate large groups had been booked long in advance.Fortunately, for us, another steakhouse had a cancellation that morning.As some of our local patients may know, hurricane force winds had wreaked havoc in greater Louisville earlier that week. We were fortunate that another group had to back out at the last minute.
