Fortis Escorts hosts two-days academic programme on facial trauma to impart advance technology and world-class skills

first_img Taking note of the rising incidents of accidents causing musculoskeletal disorders, the Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur has begun a two-day course on craniomaxillofacial processes to manage facial trauma. The course, conducted by both national and international faculty members, including Dr Sandeepan Mukul, Director – Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, Fortis Jaipur, is being held in association with AO CMF, a worldwide network of clinicians from the fields of oral and maxillofacial surgery, plastic surgery, ENT, head and neck surgery, ophthalmology and neurosurgery.Orofacial injuries comprise a significant number of trauma patients in the emergency department. Such injuries are associated with high morbidity due to increased cost of care and varying degrees of physical, functional and cosmetic disfigurement.“Facial trauma is one of the saddest outcomes of an accident. With the rise in numbers of accidents taking place in cities and settlements along the highways, the need of the hour is to augment the capabilities of our doctors to address the growing burden of disfigurement. Such incidents can seriously affect the confidence level of an individual and hence, deserve attention. This two-day course is a face-to-face interactive event delivered through a combination of short lectures, simulation, small group discussions and practical exercises. This combination enables participants to hear, discuss and apply the concepts of facial trauma management. With an aim to promote excellence in patient care and clinical outcomes of Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, we have initiated this academic programme.“We have nearly 100 participants from India and abroad, fully qualified surgeons who are involved in the treatment of facial trauma with up to five years’ experience, as well as residents and fellows, attending the course,” says Dr Sandeepan Mukul, Director – Plastic and Cosmetic Surgery, Fortis Escorts Hospital, Jaipur.Various types of facial trauma include maxillofacial injury, midface trauma, facial injury and LeFort injuries, commonly caused by car and motorcycle crashes, wounds, sports injuries and violence. The World Health Organization (WHO) estimate shows more than 3,000 people are killed every day on the road and at least 30,000 others are injured or disabled. Nearly 50 per cent of these patients have multiple trauma and require coordinated management among various disciplines of anaesthesiology, otolaryngology, trauma surgery, plastic surgery, ophthalmology and oral and maxillofacial surgery. craniomaxillofacial processesfacial traumaFortis Escorts News Add Comment By EH News Bureau on December 10, 2019 Menopause to become the next game-changer in global femtech solutions industry by 2025 Share Related Posts Indraprastha Apollo Hospitals releases first “Comprehensive Textbook of COVID-19” The missing informal workers in India’s vaccine story MaxiVision Eye Hospitals launches “Mucormycosis Early Detection Centre” Heartfulness group of organisations launches ‘Healthcare by Heartfulness’ COVID care app WHO tri-regional policy dialogue seeks solutions to challenges facing international mobility of health professionals Phoenix Business Consulting invests in telehealth platform Healpha Comments (0) Fortis Escorts hosts two-days academic programme on facial trauma to impart advance technology and world-class skills Nearly 100 participants from India and abroad, fully qualified surgeons who are involved in the treatment of facial trauma with up to five years’ experience, as well as residents and fellows, attending the course Read Articlelast_img read more
