Fourth Annual Selected Topics in Neuroplastic and Reconstructive Surgery Banner


Date & Location
Saturday, November 3, 2018 - Sunday, November 4, 2018, 12:00 AM, Chevy Chase Auditorium, Baltimore, MD

Target Audience
Neurosurgery

Overview
Modern-day cranioplasty, along with the burgeoning field of Neuroplastic and Reconstructive Surgery, is undergoing a significant paradigm shift related to various techniques, surgical advancements, implantable neurotechnology, and improved biomaterials. These changes have stimulated us to assemble premier thought leaders in various specialties including neurosurgery, neuroplastic surgery, craniofacial surgery, and plastic surgery to meet for the fourth annual symposium dedicated to the subjects of “cranioplasty”, “implantable neurotechnology”, and “neuroplastic surgery”— to be hosted this year in Baltimore, Maryland. The faculty will gather to present evidence-based data on surgical approaches and state-of-the-art materials, engage and network within a broad array of colleagues and experts, and share high-yield experiences to help attendees improve their patient outcomes. Interactive panel discussions following each lecture will offer the opportunity to debate the evidence, exchange ideas, and gain invaluable insight to assist with the most challenging cases. This year’s symposium will engage an international faculty and audience consisting of neurosurgery, neuroplastic surgery, craniofacial surgery, plastic/reconstructive surgery, oral/maxillofacial surgery, and otolaryngology/head and neck surgery to explore and elucidate the new insights and advances relative to skull reconstruction, cranial implants, and groundbreaking neurotechnologies.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND
This activity is intended for residents, fellows and physicians in Neurosurgery, Craniofacial Surgery, Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, Otolaryngology—Head and Neck Surgery, Oral Maxillofacial Surgery and Oculoplastic Surgery.
