UCLA Stein Eye Orbital Surgery Master’s Symposium and Dissection Workshop

Course Description

The Orbital Surgery course is a tightly focused program of techniques and concepts related to orbital disease and its management. The multidisciplinary faculty, renown experts in their fields, focus on practical techniques and conceptual pearls designed to send participants home with tools and knowledge that they can immediately apply to their own practice.

The dissection workshop focuses on anatomic and surgical pearls of core orbital surgery including decompression techniques, approaches to the optic nerve, the orbital apex and cavernous sinus, orbital trauma and advanced endonasal surgery. The various procedures will be reviewed in step-by-step fashion, utilizing a detailed dissection manual, bullet point surgical videos, and prosections by faculty experts. A limited enrollment will promote close interaction between participants and faculty.

For those who may prefer prosection to direct dissection, an audio-visual suite with high-resolution video feed of an instructor-led a dissection station will be offered. Legendary orbit surgeon, Jack Rootman, M.D, will perform the live cadaver dissections and interact in real time with participants and an instructor-mediator located in the audio-visual suite during the entire course of the dissections and associated lectures.

The second day of the course will include didactic sessions covering modern understanding of orbital disease and advanced techniques for management. The faculty consists of experts in the area of orbital disease and treatment who will share their knowledge and experience with participants. A range of high yield topics will be covered including orbital trauma, vascular lesions, tumors, in ammatory disease and thyroid related orbitopathy. Complex cases presented by participants will be discussed by expert panel members in an interactive manner. Individuals unable to participate in the 1st day dissection course will be welcome to attend.
