Live demonstration of Breast Surgery: The workshop gave a deep insight into the current management of breast cancer and shed light on patient selection for upfront surgery vs. neoadjuvant chemotherapy, targeted therapy, and immunotherapy followed by reconstruction techniques. Through three different case capsules, the workshop also focused on the management of axilla-like sentinel lymph node mapping and oncoplastic breast surgery which has proven to improve the quality of life in patients’ post-surgery. The workshop was attended by 42 delegates. Padmashree Dr. R.A.
