NEWTEC Seminar in Bruges
By Dennis Hurwitz on October 20, 2010
On Ocotber 18, 2010, Dr. Dennis just returns to Pittsburgh after giving guest faculty lectures and performing televised Total Body Lift Surgery at the NEWTEC aesthetic surgery seminar in Bruges, Belgium. By all accounts his lectures on Post Bariatric Torsoplasty and Facelift after Weight Loss were well received and considered major contributions. He featured the use of Quill Barbed sutures for closures and suspensions in body lift, breast lifts and facelift. The Belgium anesthesiologist, who cared for his patient who lives in Oregon, USA was amazed that this American surgeon over 6 hours could "transform a monstrous body form into a beautiful woman." She recovered nicely to travel to Pittsburgh later in the week to complete her early healing. By arriving a day early, Dr. Hurwitz could enjoy the beautiful vistas and richly adorned museums of this magnificiently restored Midieval City with cannals. In the city photo the famous Bruges Clock Tower lies beyond the cannal in the center. The small group photo has Dr. Hurwitz in a black leather jacket, sitting next to his host and director of the world famous Cosmipolis clinic, Dr.Bart Decoopman. On the far left is Prof./Dr. Albert Demey of Brussels, Belgium and on the far right scientific program director and ski companion from the University of Ghent, Begium Prof./Dr. Phillip Bondeel.
