Implant Surgery Mini-Residency Module VII
A RARE 2-day comprehensive patient-based hands-on experience!
In this Module of the ISMR, Dr. Joan Pi-Anfruns and Dr. Richard G. Stevenson will focus on the basic principles of wound healing and bone grafting, providing the basic knowledge to understand the healing mechanisms in grafting procedures. This session is part one of a two-part intense and detailed approach to understanding everything from the types of grafts available to what bone graft to use in each scenario to obtain the best results. During each session, participants will participate directly in live patient surgeries.
