Welcome letter

Dear Colleagues


It is our great pleasure, to invite you to participate in the first International surgical hands-on course for "One step unilateral cleft lip and palate surgery" from 11 - 13 June 2020 at the University Hospital Basel in Switzerland.


It is the first course of it's kind and we would like to share our passion for cleft lip and palate surgery with the concept we are pursuing . The aim is to combine the expertise of three major cleft centers working with the concept of one surgery for cleft repair for our course participants.

The historical background, anatomy and surgical technique necessary for understanding will be discussed, elaborated in workshops, demonstrated and implemented by the participants in models and cadaver surgical repair and dissection.


We are looking forward to welcoming you in Basel to our course.
