Drs. Arndt and Dover just returned from directing the annual "Controversies and Conversations in Cutaneous Laser and Cosmetic Surgery" advanced symposium, which was held at the Fairmont Banff Springs Hotel in Banff, Canada. Over 200 attendees traveled to this exciting and educational meeting to hear about state-of-the-art treatments and developments in this rapidly evolving area. Drs. Kaminer and Rohrer also participated in the program. "Controversies" , which has traditionally been held each summer for over the past two decades, is attended by physicians of many specialties, other health care providers and representatives from the medical laser and aesthetic industry, all of whom enthusiastically comment that this is the "best meeting of the year".
