New for Nottingham 2019 – workshops


On Friday morning there are two pre-meeting industry sponsored workshops – a new innovation for BOPSS this year. The workshops are available to delegates who have bought tickets for the full scientific meeting.

Miss Sabrina Shah-Desai will share her experience on working with fillers with a practical lecture demonstration with lots of videos on technique and tips. This lecture demonstration is free and we can accommodate approximately 100 delegates in lecture theatre 3.

Prof Ganga Sundar (Singapore) and Dr Dilp Srinavasan (Maxillofacial Surgeon, Nottingham) will run a practical hands on, one-hour orbital trauma workshop using 3D printed skulls with fractures, reconstructed using 3D CT scanning from actual patients. Titanium meshes and a new Biosorbable mesh will be available to understand how these defects can be repaired. There will be short video demonstrations and handouts. This workshop is limited to approximately 60 people
