I usually lecture at national and international meetings 12-15 times a year and it is always a great experience to meet new docs and share the podium with so many national experts in cosmetic surgery. Last weekend I had the honor to speak in Nashville at the Tennessee Society for Laser Medicine and Surgery Meeting which is an annual event hosted by well-known dermatologist Michael Gold and oculoplastic surgeon Dr. Brian Biesman. The guys really know how to plan a meeting and throw a party. Several hundred dermatologists, plastic surgeons, facial plastic surgeons, ophthalmologists and other specialists gathered in Nashville for this faced paced meeting that covered cosmetic surgery from head to toe. I always enjoy lecturing with my two good dermatology friends Jeanine Downie, M.D. and Doris Day, M.D.. If these names sound familiar it is because they are frequently on The View, The Today Show, and Dr. Oz.

Besides Drs. Gold and Biesman, some of my other hero docs made the meeting special. Rox Anderson, M.D. from Harvard pretty much rules the laser world and has more hobbies than 10 people. Richard Fitzpartick, M.D. is also legend in dermatology and cosmetic surgery and is a great guy to be around. Barry DiBernardo, M.D. is a very talented plastic surgeon and teacher and added a lot to the topics.
My wife April and I went to the Grand Ole Opry on Friday and it was amazing. It is actually a live radio show, which most people are unaware. Had some time to buzz through the country music honky tonks on Broadway which is like Bourbon Street in New Orleans, but for cowboys.
Dr. Gold, Biesman and Niamtu discuss cosmetic practice marketing on the final day of the course.
The final night Dr. Gold hosted a party at his home. He leaves down the street from Keith Urban……nuff said! Awesome home, great wife Cindee (the hostess) and fab party.
For any cosmetic docs reading this blog, if you want a great experience, don’t miss this meeting next February.
