Westcoast Brace & Limb was the proud host of The International Anaplastology Association (IAA) Advanced Osseointegrated Facial Implant Course: Craniofacial Prosthetic & Surgical Hands-On Training March 27-29, 2011. The course was held at our corporate office and was led by the world's only international anaplastology association and world-renowned anaplastology instructors.
The anaplastology course was a rare opportunity to witness and compare the contrasting evaluations of four different treatment styles for magnetic retention facial prostheses from world renowned leaders in the field, including Professor Anders Tjellström, a pioneer in osseointegration, and Dr. Kerstin Bergström from Sweden, Anne- Marie Riedinger from France, Jan De Cubber from Belgium, and Peter Evans from the United Kingdom.
Lab work and presentations focused on complex mid-facial, nasal, and orbital amputation. A mid-facial prosthetic patient served as a patient model and was an integral part of the interactive course. Each course participant received in depth training on the design, fabrication, and fitting of complex implant retention silicone prostheses for facial amputation.
Course participant David Robinson, Westcoast Brace & Limb’s Anaplastologist, has been a member of the International Anaplastology Association since 2005. Westcoast Brace & Limb is one of the few prosthetic facilities in Florida to offer on-site services in anaplastology. Our high realism silicone prosthetic devices replace fingers, hands, arms, toes, lower limbs, and facial anatomy.
