AO North America is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education to provide continuing medical education for physicians.

AONA has been resurveyed by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) and awarded Accreditation with Commendation.

Continuing Education Dental Credit Statement

As an Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) accredited provider, AO North America meets the definition of a constituent or component organization of the AMA and thereby meets most state dental board requirements of an approved sponsor of continuing education. This course is focused on clinical issues in oral-maxillofacial surgery that are relevant to the treatment and care of dental patients. Most states accept AMA constituents as approved sponsors for continuing dental education credit. If you have questions, your state dental board can confirm eligibility of this course.

Designation Statement - AO North America designates this live educational activity for a maximum of [Hours Pending] AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.

The Continuing Medical Education (CME) mission of AO North America (AONA®) is to provide comprehensive multidisciplinary needs based education to surgeons, fellows, and residents in the specialties of orthopedic, hand, craniomaxillofacial, spine, neurosurgery, and veterinary surgery in the areas of trauma (i.e.), operative reduction and fixation), degenerative disorders, deformities, tumors, and reconstruction.

Expected results of AONA's CME activities for surgeons, fellows, and residents are to: 

• Increase their knowledge base and surgical skill level

• Improve competence by applying advances of knowledge in patient care in the areas of trauma, degenerative disorders, deformities, tumors, and reconstructive surgical techniques 

• Address practice performance gaps by improving management of aspects of traumatic injuries and musculoskeletal disorders (i.e., pre-operative planning to post-operative care)

Event Overview
Welcome message:

The evaluation and treatment of orbital and mid-facial fractures, and peri-orbital soft tissue injuries continues to be a challenging problem, even for the most experienced surgeons. The key anatomical landmarks within the orbit are often difficult to visualize, and the relationships between important structures remain unclear to many surgeons. This is complicated by the presence of a fragile and highly specialized structure, the globe, and its associated adnexal structures, such as the extraocular muscles, and lacrimal system within the orbit, and eyelids externally.

In addition, there is much debate regarding which orbital injuries should be repaired, with what surgical approach, and the optimal timing for the repair, if performed. These factors all contribute to the difficulty of accurate orbital reconstruction. A secondary problem associated with treatment of orbital injuries is that the orbit is a region of the face that’s shared by several specialties, but not completely treated by any one specialty. For example, many ophthalmologists, are well trained in evaluating and treating eyelid lacerations, extraocular muscle problems, and lacrimal injuries, but are uncomfortable with orbital fractures, especially multi-wall injuries, or orbital fractures associated with other mid-facial injuries. Surgeons trained in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Otolaryngology, and Plastic Surgery, have varying experience with the bony reconstruction of the orbit and mid-face, and may have some experience with the soft tissue reconstruction of this region, but many do not have significant training in the internal orbital contents.

This Course is intended for instructional training in the operative treatment of orbit and midface fractures, and secondary facial reconstruction involving the orbit, according to AO principles and techniques. The Faculty are national and internationally recognized leaders in orbital reconstruction, and will discuss subjects covering craniofacial trauma and reconstructive surgery techniques. Lectures by distinguished surgeons will be combined with demonstrations, discussions and practical exercises. A “hands-on” approach to learning will be emphasized. 

Target Audience

This course is primarily designed for attending surgeons in the fields of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, Otolaryngology, Plastic and Reconstruction, Ophthalmology and Oculoplastics. Senior Residents (PGY 4 and above) and Fellows may also find this course beneficial.

Course Pre-requisite: Senior Resident PGY 4 or Above.
