AO CMF NA Computer Aided Maxillofacial Surgery (with Human Anatomical Specimens)
Join world-renowned experts in discussions and lab exercises focused on applying digital tools—such as virtual reconstruction—to complex maxillofacial surgeries
November 11-13, 2022, Tampa, Florida
During this course, world-renowned experts will give lectures on topics in congenital, post-trauma & oncologic reconstruction, intra-operative imaging, navigation, microvascular and orthognathic surgery.
After the lecture series, participants will complete three different surgical modules:
- Post traumatic orbito-zygomatic reconstruction
- Mandibular reconstruction (fibula free flap)
- Orthognathic reconstruction
Participants will first perform a virtual reconstruction (pre-surgical plan) for each scenario. Then they will move into the lab to complete the pre-planned surgical repair. The laboratory session will include access to intra-operative imaging tools (navigation and CT) for real time feedback during the repair. Finally, participants will compare their pre-surgical virtual plan to the actual reconstruction.
Learning will be delivered through
- Hands on lab exercises with human anatomical specimens
- Small group case-based discussions

Upon completion of this event, participants will be able to Display current knowledge regarding computer aided surgical planning and intra-operative navigation in the field of maxillofacial surgery Identify appropriate applications for computer aided pre-surgical planning and intra-operative navigation for treatment of traumatic, neoplastic and congenital diseases Discuss the applicability of computer aided techniques when analyzing postoperative results and outcome analysis Demonstrate the psychomotor skills to necessary to perform both pre-surgical planning and intra-operative navigation Generate a pre-surgical plan using computer aided planning software Apply intra-operative navigation to guide fracture reduction and hardware placement Evaluate the applicability of computer aided techniques when analyzing postoperative results and outcome analysis Explain the indications for and application of patient specific cutting guides and implants
