Both courses for rhinoplasty specialists are some of the best educational events that will be held all year!" according to Dr. Rod J. Rohrich M.D., F.A.C.S. Dr. Rohrich was the organizer and chair for the recent 35th anniversary of the Dallas Rhinoplasty Meeting that took place March 2 - 3, 2018.

The customizable program is designed so that rhinoplasty surgeons at any stages in their careers – both beginners and those who are proficient – can benefit from the different educational tracks.
