April 25th, 2015 was the first time the Mictoria Atresia conference was held in Russia. The conference was hosted by Alexandra Orlovskaya, a patient's parent of Dr. Reinisch and Dr. Roberson. The conference was held at the Marriot Moscow Royal Aurora Hotel and had a successful turnout with more than 40 families in attendance. Conference attendees listened to lectures by Dr. Reinisch on the Medpor ear reconstruction for Microtia and by Dr. Roberson on Atresia repair surgery. The conference was followed by one-on-one consultations for patients to have their CT scans evaulated and discuss surgery treatment plans with the two world-renowned doctors. Next year, the conference in Russia is tenatively set for May 14th and 15th. If you are interested in attending the conference, please look out for updates for conference information on our blog and social media. Conference sign up is available at www.atresiarepair.com when conference date nears. Below, please find photos from the conference.
