March 17 - 18
The Broadmoor Hotel, Colorado Springs

7:00 - 8:00 ASCFS Breakfast
8:00 - 9:00 Linton Whitaker Lecture: Henry Kawamoto, MD

The 2017 Whitaker Lecture will be delivered by Dr. Henry Kawamoto, who founded the ASCFS in 1992. On the 25th anniversary of ASCFS, Dr. Henry Kawamoto will chronicle the history of American craniofacial surgery. All biomedical sciences and surgical practices are dynamic and ever changing. Periodic historical perspectives allow for critical reviews of how the field started and the course it has taken. Importantly, such perspectives provide insight into the on-going challenges and what the future may hold.

The American Society for Craniofacial Surgery (ASCFS) Foundation is pleased to present the fifth Linton A. Whitaker Lecture. The Whitaker Lecture, established in 2012 to honor Linton A. Whitaker, MD for his significant and sustained contributions to craniofacial surgery, is to provide an evidence-based assessment of advances and challenges in craniofacial surgery.

8:00 - 10:00 Concurrent General Session E: ASCFS Panel

Over the last decade, virtual surgical planning has been applied to a myriad of operations in the craniomaxillofacial region. This session includes a multidisciplinary panel that will introduce the tools of virtual surgical planning and demonstrate how it can be applied to a variety of surgical problems. This session will include real time planning sessions to demonstrate the steps involved.
