Sixth Bergamo Open Rhinoplasty Course


Over the last years, the biennial Bergamo Open Rhinoplasty Course has progressively grown in format and reputation so as to become one of the foremost rhinoplasty symposia worldwide.   

The 2016 Edition counted 423 attendees from 52 different countries and enjoyed overwhelmingly positive feedback. For this success we are so grateful to our Faculty of internationally acknowledged Masters who have spared no effort to provide the best possible teaching and the most effective education.

The 2018 Edition will be our 10th Anniversary, and we want its format to be as LOGICAL, PROGRESSIVE and USEFUL as possible.  In essence, in a panorama worldwide of abundant options and multiple offers, we don’t want a course long on looks but short on utility.  Also, we want a course that will be equally, though differentially, useful to beginners in rhinoplasty as well as to established rhinoplasty surgeons.

For this reason, while preserving the well-established track of our previous courses, these will be the main features of the 2018 Edition designed to optimize learning:

  • the topmost Faculty ever assembled
  • a highly intensive progressive format with lectures, edited videos, panels, videopanels, boxing-rings and technique-focused videoclips.
  • highlight on current controversies and expert “summing-up” review of their pros and cons
  • 18 one- hour Masterclasses by world-renowned Masters: plenty of time to get into personal essential detail
  • true customizable program for attendees with different levels of experience
  • extensive presence from the industry and related workshops on topics that matter to one’s practice

Live surgery will purposely be substituted by abundant video teaching in this 10 th Anniversary Edition. The thought-out decision,  corroborated by the results of the feedback from the previous course, was taken that a  video-based format should strongly and fully characterize the 2018 educational portfolio. It is an undoubtable fact that many significant innovations are now occurring in rhinoplasty, such as new anatomical concepts, new instrumentation and new techniques, and this goes together with growing patient expectations. These innovations will to be covered by high quality video in full depth and proper time.

Also, please note that the Course will be preceded by the annual meeting of the Rhinoplasty Society of Europe, with a non-overlapping and multidisciplinary program, and will be followed on March 18 by the optional cadaver dissection day in Milan’s San Raffaele Hospital. 

Plentiful accommodation choices, convenient direct travel to one of the major hubs of low-cost airline carriers and the best Italian  hospitality, art and history in the setting of charming, human-scaled,  Bergamo will complete the picture.

Whether you have previously attended Bergamo, or never been there so far, we promise to do our very best to provide you with the best course ever!
