Description

This three-day course focuses on state-of-the-art techniques and best practices at a master's level in orthognathic surgery. Emerging technologies and clinical controversies in orthognathics are addressed. Using human anatomical specimens, surgical access techniques are developed and chin wing, Le Fort I-III, and BSSO type Obwegeser osteotomies are performed. Patient cases
and outcomes are addressed with expert faculty in small group discussions.

This course is delivered using a combination of small group discussions, cases, exercises with human anatomical specimens or other simulation materials, and summary lectures. All activities are moderated by expert faculty in a highly interactive learning environment. Participants are encouraged to discuss the cases and content in an open manner and to share their own experiences.
