Quick access

The course is comprised of two parts: orthognathic planning and surgery to treat obstructive sleep apnea (OSA).
Orthognathic surgery planning is the key of success in treating patients with dentofacial deformities. Detailed
customized planning is required in each case to address a wide spectrum of patients with various kinds of
dentofacial deformities to achieve good functional and aesthetic outcomes.

OSA has received increasing attention due to its serious morbidities and implications to quality of life of
patients. Craniomaxillofacial surgeons have a unique role in treating this prevalent and emerging condition.
Surgical treatment may offer a permanent cure to OSA patients and can prevent the development of subsequent
morbidities. An understanding of the principles and practices, combined with knowledge of recent advances in
surgical techniques and technology help the clinicians effectively treat challenging cases.
A multi-disciplinary approach consisting of non-surgical and surgical modalities have been advocated in the
treatment of OSA.

This course includes a series of lectures and case-based discussions on treatment planning for orthognathic
surgeries, various treatment modalities, surgical techniques, and treatment of OSA. The lectures are presented
by distinguished international, regional, and local faculty. World-renowned speakers will present cutting edge
knowledge of conventional and digitalized computerized orthognathic planning as well as the tips to achieve
improved outcomes.

Explain the principles in treating patients presented with various dentofacial deformities for aesthetic and functional improvement
Describe the current advances for planning orthognathic surgeries
Appreciate the multidisciplinary approaches to management of obstructive sleep apnea
