Hosts & History

BAKER GORDON SYMPOSIUM HISTORY

The history of the Baker Gordon Symposium parallels the evolution of interest and technical advances in cosmetic surgery. In 1967, Thomas Baker decided to invite innovators in cosmetic surgery who were willing to share their expertise to perform live surgery at Cedars Medical Center in Miami, Florida. The first invited guest surgeons included Salvador Castanares, a pioneer in modern blepharoplasty and Thomas D. Rees, who authored the first comprehensive textbook on aesthetic surgery. Twenty plastic surgeons from many parts of the United States gathered in the operating room to observe these experts and learn from their expertise.

Fifty-two years later, the contributions of Thomas J. Baker continues. The Baker Gordon Symposium has become the largest live surgery symposia in the United States, and has trained thousands of plastic surgeons both through attendance, as well as through distribution of edited videos.
