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.

This course is targeted to practicing ophthalmologists and orbital surgeons.

Friday, March 6, 2020- Dissection Laboratory, CHS 53-129

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. Limited enrollment will promote close interaction between participants and faculty.

Satellite Session, CHS 53-129

For those who may prefer prosection to direct dissection, we will be offering an audio-visual suite option for the first day activities. Live instructor-led dissection will be broadcast with a two-way live video feed and mediated by course faculty in the suite. Dissections, videos and lectures, led by Dr. Jack Rootman and other guest faculty, will be streamed live to the suite and participants will be provided opportunity to interact in real time.

Saturday, March 7, 2020- Didactic and Interactive Sessions, UCLA Stein Eye Institute, RPB Auditorium

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, inflammatory 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 first day dissection course are welcome to attend.

April 23-24, 2020 in Tel Aviv

What have we learned in the last decade?

Dear Colleagues and friends.
We are pleased to invite you to the upcoming “Oculoplastic Today 2020” conference that will be held on April 23-24, 2020 in Tel Aviv.

10 years have passed since the first “Oculoplastic Today” conference. Over the years the field of oculoplastic surgery has evolved greatly: advanced technologies, new drugs and surgeries have come into use. At the conference we will examine their impact on our work as well as try to provide a glimpse into the fascinating decade ahead.

The Oculoplastic Today conference faculty will include world leading experts from USA, Europe and the Far East. The conference will focus on both reconstructive and aesthetic oculoplastic surgery.

The conference will be held in Tel Aviv, one of the most vibrant cities in the world. Titled the “Mediterranean Capital of Cool” by the New York Times, this is a 24 hours city with a unique pulse, combining sandy Mediterranean beaches with a world-class night life, a buzzing cultural scene, incredible food, UNESCO recognized architecture and an international outlook . Don’t miss it!
We look forward to welcome you to the “Oculoplastic Today 2020” and hope we will all use it as a springboard for continuing an active dialogue and cooperation in the future, and for strengthening our professional and personal relationship.

Yours sincerely,

Iftach Yassur and Guy Ben Simon
