Obstructive Sleep Apnea Upper Airway Surgery
COURSE OVERVIEW

This two-day course will allow you to learn up-to-date surgical procedures available to treat obstructive sleep apnea.

With a strong practical focus (8 hours of cadaver dissection), the faculty will give you a comprehensive overview of the different surgical steps and technological options.

 A panel of prominent leaders in these fields of expertise will deliver lectures focusing on upper airway anatomy, nasal surgeries, adenoidectomy, tonsilectomy, pharyngoplasty, palatal surgeries and tongue surgeries.

 Faculty led clinical case discussions will also consolidate the learning objectives.

Attendees will benefit from 8 hours of hands-on dissection in the outstanding IRCAD surgical lab environment with state-of-the-art equipment provided by our dedicated sponsors. During hands-on sessions, live demonstration will be performed at the master table, broadcasted at each workstation. In the meantime, participants will work in pairs on anatomical specimens, under the guidance of a distinguished expert faculty.
