This meeting will describe what skull base surgery is as a subspecialty. It promotes as understanding of the interdisciplinary role of the MDT and gives an overview of the history of how it has evolved. The meeting should also provide an understanding of the different pathologies that can be treated and the different techniques that can now be used for treating such pathologies.
Why should you attend?
This is a subspecialty that is interdisciplinary, involving maxillofacial, ENT, occuloplastics, plastics and neurosurgery together with interventional radiology and oncology.
It is a specialty that few trainees and consultants have any experience of. However it is a specialty that has evolved and can treat many pathologies. It is important that all doctors are aware of it’s existence and how patients are treated.
This day should appeal to all those interested in head and neck, neurosurgery, plastics, ENT and maxillofacial surgery. It is also of interest to GPs, nurses, physiotherapists and occupational therapists, and medical students.
It should also be targeted at those junior doctors who are considering broadening their knowledge, or considering this type of specialty.
