Overview

Our unique Endoscopic Maxillofacial Fellowship allows fellows to learn endoscopic surgical techniques in the Department of Oral & Maxillofacial Surgery (OMFS) under the guidance of Joseph McCain, DMD, FACS, program director. Endoscopic maxillofacial surgery couples high-definition video technology with minimal access exposure to execute precise surgical maneuvers. 

Goals

Through this fellowship, we aim to:

  • Prepare the fellow to be competent in performing endoscopic-assisted procedures
  • Provide a comprehensive clinical and didactic training in minimally invasive endoscopic techniques, either as the primary procedure or endoscopic-assisted procedures
  • Advance technology and surgical procedures in order to provide precise intervention and reduce morbidity

Curriculum

Surgical procedures may include:

  • Temporomandibular joint (TMJ) arthroscopy, diagnostic and advanced
  • Sialoendoscopy
  • Endoscopic-assisted orthognathic surgery
  • Endoscopic-assisted maxillofacial trauma
  • Endoscopic-assisted TMJ
  • Total joint reconstruction
  • Sinus endoscopy

Clinical Experience

The fellow will gain experience as an attending physician and receive constructive feedback from supervisors. They will be expected to function as a primary attending for Level I Trauma, elective OMFS and resident case coverage. Additionally, they will teach residents endoscopy and general OMFS.

Research Experience

The fellow will have multiple research opportunities available in both the Center for Applied Clinical Investigation and the Skeletal Biology Research Center.
