Amsterdam Orbital Congress 2018 (including cadaveric dissection course)

Dear colleague,

Honoring the 50th anniversary of the Orbita Center, we cordially invite you to attend the Amsterdam Orbital Congress 2018.

The orbital center  was founded 50 years ago by Dr. Gabe Bleeker with the aim to develop a multidisciplinary approach towards the treatment of orbital disorders. Over the years, the center has established itself amongst the most internationally renowned institutes in the field of orbital disease. Since its inception, many (international) fellows have been trained in our center.

For this  anniversary we offer a course in orbital surgery, between 7-9 June 2018. Through didactic sessions and hands-on cadaver dissections, this course will cover the anatomy of the orbit and orbital surgery techniques while learning to avoid well-known pitfalls.

In intermezzo sessions we will discuss controversial issues in the field of orbital surgery.

This comprehensive course is suitable for both beginners and more experienced surgeons in orbital surgery.

Course Highlights
The highlights of this meeting include a course in Graves orbitopathy, orbital trauma, orbital tumors and new approaches to treat  these conditions.

Cadaveric Dissection
One day is reserved for hands-on cadaver dissection using fresh, frozen human cadavers. There will be demonstrations of the different approaches to the orbit, orbital decompression surgery and the treatment of orbital fractures. In the afternoon, participants are offered the opportunity to acquire experience in eyelid surgery and the use of fillers and botulin toxin in the peri-orbital area.

We are looking forward to welcoming you for the meeting.

With best wishes,

Peerooz Saeed, head Orbital Center Amsterdam
