Come and experience
This hands-on course, aimed at Consultants (and senior trainees) in OMFS/Maxillofacial Prosthodontics, is the first of it's kind in the UK.
It brings together over 10 years of clinical experience from this Liverpool-based clinical team in the use of conventional and oncology-modified Zygomatic Implants in the prosthetic rehabilitation of patients with maxillary and mid-facial malignant tumours.
We invite you to join us for a two-day intensive experience that brings together treatment planning discussions, didactic clinical training and cadaveric workshop incorporating the use of conventional and oncology Zygomatic Implants as well as the placement of other angled implants with significant advantages in the oncology setting. The course is being held in the Manchester Surgical Simulation Centre, a state of the art training facility in the heart of Manchester, UK.
Find out how to take the low-level maxillectomy patient from resection to full fixed prosthodontic rehabilitation within a matter of weeks post surgery and how zygomatic implants can be used to provide early loading opportunities for patients requiring prosthodontics obturator, rhinectomy and/or mid-facial resections.
