THE GOAL OF SORSSA IS EDUCATION
AND EXCHANGE OF EXPERIENCE
SOCIETY OF RHINOPLASTY SURGEONS OF SOUTH AFRICA
The goal of the Society is education and exchange of experience. Therefore the bylaws are structured that plastic surgeons, otorhinolaryngologists and maxillofacial surgeons will be represented on the Board of Directors.
The intention of the Founding Members was that the Rhinoplasty Society of South Africa acts as an educational platform for its members, to allow specialized members who have a strong clinical, teaching, and research interest in plastic, reconstructive and aesthetic rhinoplasty to exchange and develop their ideas and to work out problems in a common forum of mutual respect and collegiality.
Message from the President, Dr Stuart Geldenhuys
Welcome to the website of The Society of Rhinoplasty Surgeons of South Africa (SORSSA).
Our PURPOSE at SORSSA is the pursuit of EXCELLENCE IN RHINOPLASTY.
It is widely acknowledged that Rhinoplasty is one of the most challenging and complex surgical procedures requiring a lifetime of dedication to achieve consistently optimal results. Rhinoplasty has also evolved significantly in the last decade and will undoubtedly continue to do so, requiring ongoing training in this super-speciality.
SORSSA is a unique association of Plastic and Reconstructive, ENT and Maxilo-Facial Surgeons dedicated to perfecting the practice of Rhinoplasty. Its diversity, across several surgical specialities as well as the depth of expertise shared across the SORSSA platform enables its members to achieve better results for their patients.
SORRSA’s key objectives:
To promote the highest standards of professional skill and competence among rhinoplasty surgeons.
To create an inclusive, non-political forum for fellow colleagues, dedicated to the study of Rhinoplasty in South Africa. To learn from one another to achieve excellence in Rhinoplasty.
To co-operate with other surgical associations and specialities both locally and abroad for the advancement of knowledge in the field of rhinoplasty.
SORSSA has since its inception provided several interactive platforms to achieve its objectives;
An annual Rhinoplasty Congress
Exciting Webinars featuring international guests and experts in rhinoplasty surgery
‘Lockdown Tuesdays’ and ‘Thursdays’
‘World Rhinoplasty Day’™ - The first of its kind globally. A continuous 24 hour, international, interactive virtual event, with an exceptional faculty from 47 countries, celebrating rhinoplasty.
A SORSSA social media group which includes the world’s leading rhinoplasty experts, providing an interactive discussion forum.
SORSSA continuously strives to create exciting learning opportunities for its members and Rhinoplasty enthusiasts. It is through these interactive engagements that SORSSA has been able to improve the quality of rhinoplasties performed in South Africa.
SORSSA’s value to patients:
Patients consider rhinoplasty surgery for a variety of reasons; typically because of breathing difficulties or to enhance their nasal appearance and frequently both. As a prospective rhinoplasty patient it is important to understand that rhinoplasty surgery, being one of the most intricate and challenging procedures to perform, requires a surgeon dedicated to this super-speciality to achieve optimal and constant results. All members listed on the SORSSA website represent surgeons who are dedicated to our objectives. SORSSA is committed to continue to develop the content on its website to provide basic rhinoplasty information.
