UCLA Orbital Center Master's Symposium and Dissection Workshop
UCLA Stein Eye Institute Los Angeles, California
March 06, 2020 to March 07, 2020
The Orbital Surgery course is a tightly focused program of techniques and concepts related to orbital disease and its management. The multidisciplinary faculty, renown experts in their fields, focus on practical techniques and conceptual pearls designed to send participants home with tools and knowledge that they can immediately apply to their own practice.
This course is targeted to practicing ophthalmologists and orbital surgeons.
Friday, March 6, 2020- Dissection Laboratory, CHS 53-129
The dissection workshop focuses on anatomic and surgical pearls of core orbital surgery including decompression techniques, approaches to the optic nerve, the orbital apex and cavernous sinus, orbital trauma and advanced endonasal surgery. The various procedures will be reviewed in step-by-step fashion, utilizing a detailed dissection manual, bullet point surgical videos, and prosections by faculty experts. Limited enrollment will promote close interaction between participants and faculty.
Satellite Session, CHS 53-129
For those who may prefer prosection to direct dissection, we will be offering an audio-visual suite option for the first day activities. Live instructor-led dissection will be broadcast with a two-way live video feed and mediated by course faculty in the suite. Dissections, videos and lectures, led by Dr. Jack Rootman and other guest faculty, will be streamed live to the suite and participants will be provided opportunity to interact in real time.
Saturday, March 7, 2020- Didactic and Interactive Sessions, UCLA Stein Eye Institute, RPB Auditorium
The second day of the course will include didactic sessions covering modern understanding of orbital disease and advanced techniques for management. The faculty consists of experts in the area of orbital disease and treatment who will share their knowledge and experience with participants. A range of high yield topics will be covered including orbital trauma, vascular lesions, tumors, inflammatory disease and thyroid related orbitopathy. Complex cases presented by participants will be discussed by expert panel members in an interactive manner. Individuals unable to participate in the first day dissection course are welcome to attend.
