Dear Esteemed Guests, Distinguished Colleagues, and Honored Speakers,

It is with great pleasure and excitement that we extend a warm welcome to all of you to the 10 th World Symposium for Lymphedema Surgery, held at the prestigious Taipei Garden Hotel, Taipei, Taiwan from April 22 to April 24, 2024.

This symposium represents a significant gathering of surgical professionals, researchers, and experts from around the world, all dedicated to advancing the field of lymphedema surgery. Over the next three days, we have meticulously curated a program that offers a platform for the exchange of knowledge, the exploration of cutting-edge research, and the sharing of invaluable experiences.

One unique and groundbreaking feature of our symposium is the inclusion of the "Live Surgery Demonstrations" section. This pioneering component will allow attendees to witness, in real-time, surgical procedures related to lymphedema surgery, providing an extraordinary opportunity to observe the latest techniques and advancements firsthand. We believe this hands-on experience will greatly enhance the educational value of our symposium.

Our distinguished speakers, who are leaders in the field of lymphedema surgery, will present their insights, innovations, and breakthroughs that promise to shape the future of patient care. We are honored to have such a wealth of expertise under one roof.

Furthermore, we believe that the spirit of collaboration and networking is fundamental to progress in medicine. Therefore, we have designed this symposium to facilitate discussions, foster new collaborations, and nurture lasting professional relationships.

We express our heartfelt gratitude to all those who have contributed to the realization of this symposium—our speakers, sponsors, partners, and, of course, each and every attendee. Your presence here makes this event truly special.

As we embark on this enlightening journey together, we encourage you to engage actively, exchange ideas passionately, and, above all, take inspiration from the collective dedication to advancing the understanding and treatment of lymphedema.

Once again, welcome to the World Symposium for Lymphedema Surgery. We anticipate an inspiring and productive symposium and look forward to the groundbreaking discoveries and friendships that will undoubtedly emerge.

With warm regards,
