This unique course, is the first cadaver hands-on-dissection course, that which allows to perform surgical procedures on 2 fresh-frozen heads for each participant. According to our philosophy, it is wrong to contrast the closed approach with the open approach. The facial surgeon must have mastered both techniques, in order to be able to apply the most appropriate choice in the single clinical case. It is not surgery that has to adapt to the surgeon’s cultural background, but the opposite.
Course aimed at senior trainees and consultants in MaxilloFacial, ENT and Plastic surgery. Supervised by very experienced surgical faculty.
