Dr Radoslaw Jadach is coming back to Sydney, Australia in July 2020 with a two day hands-on cadaver workshop. We all know that the theoretical knowledge is completely different than experience and hand skills and your ability to do very precision techniques. It is time to start putting all your knowledge to the test! Dr Radoslaw will show you a lot of very rare and complex techniques. They are not easy, they are very rare in our offices, but if you're able to understand and complete this kind of procedure or know how to take more than one or two kinds of approaches you may have less failures. Having the understanding and knowledge of how to change your technique, how to change your treatment plan when complication exist. How do you manage complications during surgery? If you are aware of multiple approaches you will have more skills in your tool kit to deal with problems that may arise. For example, if you are doing a split-thickness flap, and want to place a soft tissue graft in that area, should we perforate mucosa or detach the periosteum completely from the bone. How should you fix this graft? You have to finish the case safely for your patient with good results. It is not good enough to stop the surgery, closed the wound and start again after two months or refer on. Today, if you wish to be a good surgeon, it means that you must know how to deal with complications, and how to fix it immediately. Further event information
