Drs Farjo took part in the ISHRS (International Society of Hair Restoration Surgery) FUE Immersion World Live Surgery Workshop held in Polanica, Poland October 1-2, 2017
It was a 2 day event comprising of morning lectures followed by live hair transplant surgery demonstrations in the afternoons. A Beginners course preceded the main event. Dr Bessam Farjo acted as live surgery moderator over both days facilitating an experienced link between the surgery and the delegates in both the operating rooms and the video auditorium.

However, the main event of that week, and the whole year in our field was the 25th ISHRS World Congress in Prague, Czech Republic on October 4-7, 2018.
