EFP announces live surgery day with the Osteology Foundation

The EFP is teaming up with the Osteology Foundation to offer a day of live periodontal and peri-implant surgery.
     The "Osteology-EFP Virtual Live Surgery Day" takes place on June 17 and will feature surgery performed by Anton Sculean (EFP president 2018-19) and Andreas Stavropoulos (EFP president-elect) with presentations by keynote speakers Martina Stefanini and Frank Schwarz. The event will be moderated by Mariano Sanz and Giovanni Salvi.
     The opening session, moderated by Mariano Sanz, focuses on the treatment of mandibular recessions. Martina Stefanini will talk about the possibilities and limits of recession coverage in the mandible and Anton Sculean will then perform live surgery to treat this problem. In the second session, moderated by Giovanni Salvi, Frank Schwarz will explain the possibilities and limits of surgical treatment for peri-implantitis and Andreas Stavropoulos will perform live peri-implantitis surgery in the anterior zone. Both sessions will be followed by panel discussions with questions and answers.
     "This event will be unique because high-quality, evidence-based lectures will be coupled with live surgery and everything will be streamed on an online platform globally," said Prof Sculean. 
     Registration for the event (€40 including VAT if booked before 3 June, €60 if booked later) is now open. The registration fee includes access to the live event and to the recordings of it.
     The language of live surgery day will be English, with simultaneous translation into Spanish, Russian, and Chinese.
