Local Chairperson:
Dr. Akira Watanabe, Tokyo, Japan

Target audience
Recommended for a surgeon who already has experience with Orthognathic Surgery and who is about to perform Orthognathic Surgery.

Main specialty of the event
Starting with classification of the injury or deformity, the faculty members share their preferred approach, treatment and follow-up of cases with basic to advanced difficulty.

Expected total number of participants

Educational needs
Dealing with challenging fractures and deformities, consultants request exchange through case discussions both theoretically and through surgeries. Beside state-of-the-art approaches, expert opinions and discussions are highly appreciated to scientifically elaborate improvements when dealing with difficult cases.

Expected educational outcomes
Extend common knowledge and skills and awareness of surgical techniques by exchanging less frequent or demanding cases of orthopedics and traumatology.

Nature of the event
The course offers ideal conditions for the introduction and consolidation of surgical techniques. Participants learn about current treatment concepts as well as new techniques on internal fixation. Experienced surgeons provide theoretical insight into therapy concepts and will focus on clinical anatomy, fracture classification, approaches and last but not least, many case discussions. Workshops permit the attendees to apply the gained skills on anatomical bone models under directed supervision.


Methods to promote active learning
Multimedia presentations; time for question & answer sessions and discussion; workshops on anatomical bone models with helpful hints demonstrated by faculty members.
