Welcome message:

Dear colleagues,

We are very pleased to invite you to the annual International 3D-Surgery Course which will be held from 18 to 21 of September 2019 in Munich.

The “International” 3D-Surgery Course has taken place in Istanbul since 2015. As an exception for 2019 the course will be held in Munich to celebrate the 10th anniversary of 3D-Surgery Munich.

The Course will take place in the honourable Department of Anatomy (“Anatomische Anstalt”) of the Ludwig-Maximilians-University in Munich, Germany. The venue is located in the so-called Clinic Quarter, which was established 200 years ago. In the immediate vicinity of the city centre of Munich you might find time to enjoy Munich’s multiple attractions in architecture, art and lifestyle.

A renowned international faculty will present current and future concepts for 3D surgery, which means bone defects, deformities and limb length discrepancies. Modern techniques like locking plates, computer assisted hexapod systems and fully implantable lengthening nails are well established and there are various osteotomy types and tools. Still the course is not only about how to technically reconstruct a bone defect e.g. by callotasis, how to correct a bone deformity by a locking plate or a lengthening a leg by telescoping intramedullary nails.

The goal of the course is to fully understand the specific case by proper analysis, then to plan the surgery meticulously and choosing the best procedure for this individual patient. We will present elaborated concepts for analysis and planning like practicable tools for planning on paper, affordable software tools and the End-Point-First technique (EPF) for planning of surgeries. Masters of those topics will give an up-to-date overview and tips and tricks on analysis and planning, on surgical techniques and on implant technology.
A large amount of the content will be supported by hands-on experience e.g. in drawing labs and bone model labs and there is an option to additionally perform various surgical techniques during the cadaver lab.

We will do our best to provide an intellectually stimulating time a most enjoyable stay in Munich and to promote future clinical and academic relations in the field of 3D-Surgery.

With the best wishes
