ASCFS Annual Meeting
The Broadmoor Hotel
Colorado Springs, Colorado
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.

Craniofacial Surgical techniques have advanced rapidly over the past several years, and the increasing complexity of cases treated requires meticulous treatment planning. The purpose of this symposium will be to present the approach craniofacial surgeons are using to treatment plan complex cases to achieve optimal outcomes. The panel will have four surgeons presenting different cases and demonstrate how each surgeon approaches the evaluation and management of their particular case. The cases presented will include orbitozygomatic osteotomy, mandibular reconstruction, cranial vault remodeling for synostosis, and hemifacial microsomia.
The American Society for Craniofacial Surgeons will also have material that can be downloaded from its website that will assist the surgeon in planning and preparing to implement this technology into his or her practice. A brief introduction to the technology will precede case presentation and then a question and answer period will conclude the panel.
