Submit your own cases to be reviewed by our Salivary Surgery Experts, Dr. Rohan Walvekar and Dr. Barry Schaitkin. Cases will be selected prior to the session and those selected will be notified. Our experts, joined by guest panelists, will review the case details, provide their perspective, and go over alternative methods to consider when presented with a similar case.
If you feel uncomfortable submitting patient information, you can just bring the information to the session and present it directly to the experts. Here is what you need to have prepared when you join the webinar:
• Short patient history – medical and surgical
• Findings from images or scans – the actual images and scans are helpful too
• Any kind of operative images or videos that can help showcase the problem
• A question to pose to the expert panel
