1st International webinar for one step unilateral cleft lip and palate surgery leading to pure primar healing


University of Basel, Switzerland

11 - 12 June 2020


Exclusive Webinar

One step unilateral cleft lip and palate surgery with pure primary healing

Get the joint know-how and experience gained from over 90 years of one-step practice at the cleft centers Basel, Warsaw and Yokohama.

Learn about the historical evolution of one cleft surgery and dive into its current state of the art. Appreciate the common principle of complete primary wound healing on the palate. Understand which of the variations can be potentially aligned with your current techniques in use. We demonstrate one cleft surgery methods: with and without presurgical orthopedics, with or without gingivoperiostplasty, with intravelar or double-Z veloplasty, and with variations on lip-nose repair.

We offer an identical webinar on two dates as below. This will allow optimal time slots for participants around the world.

At each date, we are pleased to welcome a total of 300 participants.


We look forward to your participation.
