This unique symposium combines classroom instruction with hands-on practice using state-of-the-art 3D models created from scans of actual patients. The workshop will provide hands-on experience performing fronto-orbital advancement for the repair of unilateral coronal synostosis and advanced endoscopic techniques for the repair of metopic and sagittal craniosynostosis.
Neurosurgical and Plastic & Reconstructive Surgical residents will find this course especially useful, but it is appropriate for any neurosurgeon or plastic/reconstructive surgeon wishing to learn the most advanced open and endoscopic techniques.
The symposium will consist of a series of brief lectures, followed by a lab practical involving lifelike craniosynostosis models created using 3D technology. Models are based on actual patient scans. Learn the latest techniques for these complex reconstructive surgeries from experts in Pediatric Neurosurgery and Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery, including symposium directors Dr. Mark Souweidane and Dr. Caitlin Hoffman.
