Letter from The President


Martin Halle, President

The Swedish Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery

Dear friends and colleagues,

It is a great pleasure and honor for us to announce the next Annual Meeting with The Swedish Society for Reconstructive Microsurgery (SFRM) that will be held in Stockholm November 9th-10th 2023. The meeting will be focused on sarcoma reconstruction, a field where reconstructive plastic surgery has paramount impact on multidisciplinary cancer treatment from head to toe.  Creativity and back-up solutions with a broad toolbox are mandatory qualifications whenever we join these cases. In fact, we enable large tumor resections only when other surgical specialities can rely on our capability to restore and rebuild after their resection. This is why they call us ”the surgeon´s surgeon”.

We restore, rebuild, and make whole those parts which nature hath given, but which fortune has taken away. Not so much that it may delight the eye, but that it might buoy up the spirit, and help the mind of the afflicted.”

With a great faculty of international speakers from The United States, Italy and U.K, me and our local hosts Nathalie Mobarga and Jenny Löfgren encourage all centers to select and submit challenging cases for lively discussions. Looking forward to welcoming you at Karolinska University Hospital.
