3rd Mediterranean FUE Workshop – Day 2 (Part 2)
The afternoon progressed with a second day of surgical observation rotations, again in four surgical rooms with surgeries being performed by faculty members; Dr. Erdogan, Dr. Harris, Dr. Lorenzo, Dr. Lupanzula and Dr. Cole who demonstrated his skill at performing extractions on non-shaven patients.
After a few hours to relax, participants and their guests boarded buses and traveled along Istanbul’s Asian Bosphorus Sea coastline to the resplendent Adile Sultan Palace for a Gala Dinner. The palace was the former residence of the Ottoman princess Adile and affords magnificent views, especially at sunset, of the Bosphorus Sea and the Istanbul skyline from its perch high on a cliff.
As the evening progressed, each faculty member was graciously presented with a participatory plaque by hosts Dr. Erdogan, Dr. Ginzburg and Dr. Lorenzo and the enthusiasm and clapping was instantly transformed into a magical energy that lit up the dance floor. The merriment could have easily progressed into the early morning, but alas, there was still a day of learning and sharing ahead.
