Last weekend, Professor Federico Hernández Alfaro participated in the 1st. Surgery First Summit, an unprecedented event that commemorates the tenth anniversary of the beginnings of Surgery First, an innovative technique in the field of orthodontic and maxillofacial surgery that involves changing the classical treatment sequence (orthodontic treatment-orthognathic surgery-orthodontic treatment), and replace it with surgery-orthodontic treatment, presenting numerous advantages for patients who are candidates.
Under the motto: "Shorter, safer and with greater certainty", experts from all over the world met in Sendai, Japan to exchange knowledge and techniques in this Symposium, where Professor Hernández Alfaro, as international expert and pioneer in Surgery First , had the honor of being one of the main speakers. In his lecture "On an Adequate timing for Orthognathic surgery", Dr. Hernandez Alfaro presented a revolutionary form of facial transformation with the nasion vertical plane as an absolute aesthetic reference in ortofacial surgery.
This historical event has undoubtedly laid the foundations for the future of Surgery First treatment and surgical orthodontics, and thanks to the innovative work of our Director, at the Maxillofacial Institute we proudly stand at the forefront of oral and maxillofacial surgery techniques.
