We're excited to share insights and takeaways from the latest medical conference hosted by the Institute of Tissue Regeneration & Repair, which took place at the Westin Fort Lauderdale Beach Resort in Florida from September 30th  – October 1st. While part of The Institute of Tissue Regeneration & Repair's 2023 conference series, this particular event was the first of its kind in the U.S. dedicated exclusively to the use of AWT shockwave therapy in the field of aesthetics, dermatology, and wound. CuraMedix, STORZ Medical, and Cervos Medical proudly sponsored the ‘SKIN’ themed conference. 

CuraMedix’s leadership expressed the privilege of working alongside a remarkable group of dedicated medical professionals who share a deep passion for these technologies. Witnessing the growing interest and adoption of shockwave and AWT (Acoustic Wave Therapy) in patient care is phenomenal. Discover firsthand how game-changing technologies and regenerative approaches can transform patient care and practice growth.

Attendees with a keen interest in Aesthetic and Anti-Aging Medicine and medical professionals specializing in Wound Care were treated to an immersive learning experience like no other.

The conference was engaging on many levels, and attendees had the privilege of learning from and interacting with expert presenters and panelists, including AWT experts Prof. Dr. Karsten Knobloch, FACS, Dr. med. Bettina Rümmelein, and Deborah Sanfilippo as well as STORZ Medical’ s Thomas Stierle. Special guests also included Dr. Christopher Kyriakides and Dr. Chris Kyriakides.

An Immersive and Engaging Medical Conference

6 PanelEach Institute of Tissue Regeneration & Repair conference is tailored to meet the needs of the audience of professionals and medical providers in attendance by offering:

  • Best-in-class education and training
  • Presentations that reveal the latest research, techniques, protocols, and practice management tips.
  • Exceptional hands-on training to enhance patient outcomes and practice growth
  • Direct access to world renowned thought leaders and medical experts in regenerative medicine
  • Multifaceted learning formats tailored to meet the needs of multiple medical disciplines
  • Opportunities to network and collaborate with peers

This time around, it was all about treating skin. Since skin is the body’s largest organ, it’s no wonder an entire conference was dedicated to its care, restoration, and regeneration. Turns out cellulite, facial wrinkles, wounds, and scars were no match for this enthusiastic and engaged group. 

Deborah TreatingSharing of information and collaboration took center stage and the opportunity for hands-on access brought engagement to new heights. With ample opportunities for hands-on exploration, attendees became very comfortable with these groundbreaking technologies: shockwave, Acoustic Wave Therapy (AWT), and EMTT. 

During two action-packed days, participants immersed themselves in a rich program filled with enlightening presentations, insightful panel discussions, and meaningful interactions among peers. Most importantly, attendees discovered innovative ways to integrate shockwave into their continuum of care and achieve exceptional results.

No other medical conference compares to this unique opportunity for dedicated learning focused exclusively on Shockwave (EPAT/ESWT), Extracorporeal Magnetotransduction Therapy (EMTT), and other regenerative modalities.
