DiGregorio Speaks At Conference

Dr. Vincent R. DiGregorio, senior surgeon at Garden City’s Long Island Plastic Surgical Group, has been selected to participate on a panel at the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons’ (ASAPS) Annual Conference in San Francisco. The panel is entitled “Nasal Airway Obstruction-What YOU Need to Know.” Nationally recognized for his expertise in the field of nasal obstruction, Dr. DiGregorio is one of five doctors throughout the United States who was asked to participate. The conference, which is held for an audience of nearly 10,000 plastic surgeons specializing in aesthetic surgery, allows for leading professionals to describe surgical techniques for procedures requiring both cosmetic and functional fixes.

As a highly respected voice on the subject, DiGregorio was both excited and honored to return as a speaker for another year at the annual conference. “The management of nasal airway obstruction has been a passion of mine since I first started”, began DiGregorio. “I’m glad to be sharing my experience in a national forum. In many cases nasal obstructions caused by trauma require the repair of both the nasal airway and nose structure. As a result, it is important for patients to visit a plastic surgeon that is trained to address both problems.”

As the leading professional organization for plastic surgeons, ASAPS’ mission is to advance the science, art, and safe practice of aesthetic plastic surgery among qualified surgeons. At the forefront of innovation, research, education and patient advocacy, the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons’ (ASAPS) has nearly 2,600 members worldwide. The panel will take place on April 28 in San Francisco.
