The guru of plastic surgery, Dr. Rod Rohrich
Fifty-two years ago, a surgeon by the name Thomas Baker invited fellow surgeons to perform live surgeries with the intention of training aspiring surgeons in the United States. The event was attended by several surgeons from all over the country, and the tradition has been held on up to this era. Currently, the event is known as the Baker Gordon Educational Symposium that is held annually and is responsible for training thousands of plastic surgeons in the country. Behind the symposium is a group of well-regarded faculty members including Dr. Rod Rohrich who chaired this year’s symposium among the three conferences that he is said to chair including the 21st worldwide Dallas medicine and cosmetics surgery meeting and the 35th Dallas Rhinoplasty meeting.
Dr. Rod Rohrich is a renowned plastic surgeon as well as an educator and innovative spearhead in the scene of plastic surgery. With a certification by the American Plastic Surgeon’s Board and a medical degree from the University of Baylor, Ron runs a private practice clinic. His practice is located in University Hospitals and the Institute of Plastic Surgery at Dallas. Furthermore, he is a professor at the Dallas Southwestern Medical Centre for plastic surgery to which he also plays the role of founding chairperson and the president of the Plastic Surgery Academic Chairmen Association.
Dr. Rod Rohrich is an active member of several professional associations and societies like the ASPS, ABPS and ASAPS that are all involved in plastic surgery. He also holds two decades of experience in organized medicine under his sleeves and holds a patent on new breast implants and has also developed educational approaches that aim at bringing technological advancement into plastic surgery.
Dr. Rohrich has received numerous awards for his contribution in the world of plastic surgery through research and teaching. All this experience makes him the right person to chair these events where he is also scheduled to perform a number of live surgeries. He will be joined by a team of expert surgeons that will take part in the events and also offer their insight on plastic surgery and hopefully inspire the up-coming group of plastic surgeons that will be in attendance as well as those who have been in the scene for a while but yearn to learn something new.
