8:00 10:00 am   Session E: ASCFS Panel on Treacher Collins Syndrome
Interdisciplinary Management of Treacher Collins Syndrome From Birth To Adulthood
Goal: To present a comprehensive approach to the diagnosis and management of individuals with Treacher Collins syndrome.
Objective: Attendees will be able to identify the spectrum of Treacher Collins syndrome, and discuss current diagnostic and surgical approaches to the treatment of Treacher Collins syndrome.
Session Chair: Stephen Beals, MD
Session Co-Chair: Jesse Taylor, MD

Treacher Collins syndrome (TCS), or mandibulofacial dysostosis, remains one of the most challenging craniofacial anomalies treat. The panel will present the clinical pathway for interdisciplinary management of TCS from birth to adulthood. The audience will receive a contemporary treatment protocol that will improve the clinical management of patients with TCS. The attendee will gain increased competence which will contribute better long term outcomes.
