This course aims to improve participants' ability to provide advanced surgical management for patients with TMJ disorders.
The topics of the course will be discussed during two days and taught in three main ways. Comprehensive lectures on the first day will concentrate on the understanding of the core material. On the second day, practical exercises on Thiel- fixated human specimens will cover specific surgery techniques. At the beginning of each surgical section, a short lecture and a demonstration by an instructor will be given. In order to link the lecture material and practical skills taught with the problems encountered in daily practice, participants will have an opportunity for discussion with the instructors and the audience after each hands-on exercise section.
