Between May 30th and June 01st, 2015, the first Saudi S.O.R.G. Comprehensive Course in Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery was celebrated under the auspices of the Saudi Ministry of Health, King Saud Medical City as well as the Saudi Society of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery in Riyadh. Local Chairman Dr. Khalid Almutairi could welcome 170 participant specialists from all over the country to a high-caliber scientific program on state-of-the-art OMF traumatology featuring four European S.O.R.G. members as invited lecturers.
Profs. Ruud Bos (Groningen, The Netherlands), Günter Lauer (Dresden, Germany), Niall McLeod (United Kingdom) and Wolfgang Puelacher (Innsbruck, Austria) gave a wide-range overview to their Saudi colleagues in their speeches, also involving hands-on workshops with osteosynthesis procedures on pre-fractured bone models which were very much enjoyed by all attendees. The next Saudi course supported by S.O.R.G. will be on another topic within the scope of today’s up-to-date OMF surgery.
