The mission of the 2017 Oculofacial Plastic Surgery Subspecialty Day is to provide attendees with a comprehensive, state-of-the-art update on modern techniques in oculofacial plastic surgery.
What is the professional practice gap that this activity will address?
Practice gaps involving new options for the nonsurgical and surgical treatment of the aging face will be discussed. Practice gaps regarding orbital disease diagnosis and treatment, orbital trauma, and eyelid and orbital oncology will be identified. Newer alternatives in medical and surgical management of thyroid eye disease, as well as issues regarding newer techniques in orbital surgery, nonsurgical treatment for periorbital cancers, and treatment options for orbital inflammatory disorders, will be examined.
The intended audience for this program is practicing oculofacial surgeons and comprehensive ophthalmologists from around the world with an interest in oculofacial surgery.
The goal of this program is to provide attendees with a comprehensive update on improved patient care and outcomes in oculofacial plastic surgery.
Upon completion of this activity, participants should be able to:
- Identify modern, evidence-based algorithms in oculofacial plastic surgery disease treatment and determine how to effectively apply them
- Introduce into practice the contemporary management of congenital eyelid and orbital disease, thyroid eye disease, and orbital trauma
- Evaluate complex orbital and oculoplastics cases to understand treatment outcomes
- Gain familiarity with the practice patterns of experienced oculofacial practitioners and understand differences in preferred practice patterns
