Oncoplastic Surgery Masterclass provides the spectrum of oncoplastic procedures available to breast surgeons. Hands-on education is provided by nationally recognized experts in an individualized method.

Oncoplastic Surgery is safe, has fewer re-excisions, has improved cosmetic results and has been embraced by many breast surgery organizations here and abroad. Join us at our newly expanded three-day “Oncoplastic Surgery Masterclass” using environmentally conscious customized Mastotrainer models to perform a variety of oncoplastic surgical procedures, from basic to complex. These models provide predictable anatomic issues that can be corrected using the variety of oncoplastic techniques.

One-on-one instruction will occur in a see-one do-one process. Surgeons of all breast surgical skills can learn new techniques. Those who already perform oncoplastic surgery may consider applying for the “Certi­ficate of Performance in Oncoplastic Surgery™.” This process will include educational lectures, documented performance of multiple techniques, and an oncoplastic surgery written test. An award report will be given that documents each procedure and all educational content and testing to validate one’s own performance.

For those looking to validate your own Oncoplastic Surgery experience, apply for the “Certificate of Performance in Oncoplastic Surgery” (extra charge).


Oncoplastic surgery has become a valuable addition to the breast surgeon’s skills. Since this is an evolving set of surgical procedures and residencies and fellowships are only gradually integrating these techniques into training, other options to learn these skills have developed. Some surgeons have integrated these techniques in their set of options for patients and other surgeons have used only a few basic techniques.

There is no consistent standardization of skills that is uniformly used to validate performance, making it difficult for surgeons to demonstrate their abilities.

We have developed a comprehensive assessment tool to validate the necessary components of skills and knowledge necessary to perform oncoplastic surgery. This process does not guarantee hospitals will approve privileges for these surgeons, but it provides a tangible document verifying that all the components of oncoplastic surgery competence have been successfully addressed in the lab via practical and written assessments.

This process includes:

  • 1a) General or Breast Surgeon Board Certified/Eligible with at least one year of practice,
  • 1b) Entry level documentation of at least one prior educational course in oncoplastic surgery and confirmation (stipulation) that at least some oncoplastic procedures have been performed,
  • 2) Benelli/Round Block Mastopexy,
  • 3) Inframammary approach,
  • 4) Anchor/inverted T approach,
  • 5) Superior pedicle reduction mammoplasty via Wise Pattern,
  • 6) Inferior pedicle reduction mammoplasty via Wise Pattern.

The comprehensive nature of this certification is demonstrated with a document which includes the description of the educational content of this course, the score of the knowledge test (either passing or fail), and a series of photographs of each of the six procedures performed. Each procedure will have three pictures which include the before view, the mid-surgery view to demonstrate surgical technique, and the final result view with which to compare with the pre-surgery view. The document will have a cover page describing the educational content of the course, a brief description of the test content, and a series of 18 photos of the six procedures. At the front of the document will be the actual Certificate of Performance in Oncoplastic Surgery.

Fellows may attend without charge when attending with a certifying surgeon*

Oncoplastic surgery is a new type of procedure for breast surgeons. The breast fellows may or may not know about this, but our course is an opportunity for breast surgeons to learn oncoplastic surgery. If you were thinking of coming to the oncoplastic surgery course and you work with a breast fellow, consider coming to the course and bringing your fellow for free if you are coming for certification.

The essential oncoplastic surgery course has a series of lectures and a series of labs. If you bring your breast fellow with you, they can come to the lectures and when you’re doing the operation on the models, the fellow can assist you.

Airport Information

The two closest airports are Atlantic City (8 miles) or Philadelphia (50 miles)

Pro’s Cons of each

  1. Atlantic City (AC) is close, however, limited. The only airline available is Spirit.
  2. Philadelphia has access from everywhere. It is also a very easy drive to Caesars from the airport, it is a short trip up I95 to the Atlantic City Expressway that runs right into Caesars Atlantic City.. It takes about an hour.
