Argomento dell'Evento

Dear Colleagues,
It is with great pleasure that I would like to introduce you to this First Head and Neck
Surgery Course, presented entirely in 3D. This powerful technological development in
our field, as well as in other fields of surgery, is undoubtedly influencing not so much the
surgical procedure itself but the way we perform as surgeons today.
Greater attention to detail, minimal invasiveness, full sharing of all phases of the operation, video tutoring of colleagues in training: these and other aspects represent the everyday reality in many operating rooms. Moreover, what happens in the operating field can now be filmed and reviewed in 4K and 3D technology, i.e. maximum video fidelity coupled with a depth of field that in the past only the first surgeon could have.
“Better than Live” is a slogan but it also presents a real challenge: its aims are not just filming and showing surgery better than ever before, but also demonstrating how the execution of an operation under the control of 3D monitors can produce a decisive increase in minimally invasive procedures in a short time.
This will also be the occasion to introduce you to my new professional home, the FPO IRCCS in Candiolo, a Cancer Research Institute whose distinctive characteristics are, among others, the application of leading edge technology, a patient-centered approach, and attention to quality of life.
The First Course will deliberately cover all the surgical fields in our extensive discipline. It will be followed by other, more specific courses, focused on individual anatomical areas and their specific procedures. The formula is simple: two simultaneous live surgery sessions from the operating rooms and video-sessions with recorded contributions. The Italian Faculty is composed of greatly experienced surgeons who are greatly experienced at a very detailed level.
Last but not least, we have decided to join the VI Italian-Brazilian Congress of Head and Neck Surgery and we have invited some internationally acclaimed colleagues to present 3D video sessions on some of the hot surgical topics. A warm welcome to them from our scientific community! I hope to see you in Turin next February.
Giovanni Succo
