Cadaver Dissection

Fresh frozen cadaver dissection is an important teaching tool and a unique opportunity to gain knowledge of the surgical anatomy and to practice surgical techniques in modern rhinoplasty. A full color dissection manual and supervised hands-on experience is available. The dissection manual consists of a basic and a advanced part, each of which takes two to three hours of practice.
Instruments of the highest quality will be available for each participant (NT-instruments).
