Dear Industry Partner,
On behalf of the Plastic Surgery Foundation, I would like to invite you to join us for the third Technology Innovation in Plastic Surgery (TIPS) meeting. TIPS is designed to fill a professional gap facing healthcare workers involved in aesthetic procedures, reconstructive surgery, and wound care. Our goal is to initiate a conversation between clinicians and industry representatives to accelerate the development of technologies that will improve the lives of patients. No other meeting within the field has advanced technology innovation so directly.
As you’ll see in the agenda, a global faculty of leading dermatologists, plastic surgeons, and wound care experts will convene to provide clinicians with a practical knowledge base of the current available technologies. We will simultaneously create a networking opportunity for physicians who would like to become active participants in the innovation process. Your company’s involvement will enable us to offer attendees a broad view of innovations that have shaped the industry and a glimpse of what products and technologies are on the horizon. Most importantly, your presence at the meeting will allow participants to fully engage as innovators, inventors, and potentially as future industry partners and collaborators. I hope that you will consider partnering with us as a sponsor of this annual event.
TIPS has been enthusiastically embraced by the leadership and membership of the plastic surgery and reconstructive wound care communities. Initial comments from the plastic surgery community suggest that TIPS has the potential to be the meeting of the decade.
I hope to see you in San Francisco in May.
Geoffrey C. Gurtner, MD
