Minimally Invasive Maxillofacial Surgery
For decades, Dr. Ambrose imparted his zest for practical dentistry and high standards of professional ethics to hundreds of young people, all of whom were well guided by his dedication, compassion and his common sense approach. McGill has had a great tradition of exceptional practitioners and teachers. It is my honor to serve as a lecturer for the Dr. Ernie Ambrose Lectureship.
Advances in technology and instrumentation have allowed surgeons to develop and refine minimally invasive procedures to replace standard, maximally invasive operations in many surgical specialties. Minimally invasive surgery, with decreased morbidity, decreased hospital stay and quicker recovery has been well accepted in many surgical disciplines and has been especially well accepted by the patients who it benefits.
Initially, minimally invasive surgery was synonymous to endoscopy. It has now evolved to be “the discipline of surgical innovation combined with technology.” The field of minimally invasive surgery has grown because patients embrace the better outcomes with less swelling, less pain, shorter hospital stay and earlier return to work. This is cost-effective and “state-of-the-art medical care”. This talk represents one oral and maxillofacial surgeon’s journey as a translational scientist, bench-to-bedside, and will include distraction osteogenesis, endoscopy for reconstruction of the ramus/condyle unit, sialoendoscopy and tissue engineering.
8:00 - 9:30 Homecoming Breakfast
9:30 - 11:30 Lecture (Dr. Maria Troulis)
Dr. Troulis received her Bachelor of Science in Anatomy and Histology and Doctorate of Dental Surgery (Class of ’91) from McGill University and completed the Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery Residency Program at the Montreal General Hospital in 1997 under Dr. K. Bentley and Dr. T. Head’s tutelage. After her residency training, Dr. Troulis joined Dr. L. Kaban’s group at Massachusetts General Hospital (MGH), Pediatric Craniofacial Clinical Research Fellowship. There she developed an animal model to study distraction osteogenesis. During her fellowship she started working on the development of minimally invasive approaches for mandibular reconstruction and continued in this subspeciality as she joined at the MGH in 1999. In 2002, she was named Director of the Skeletal Biology Research Laboratory (with multiple NIH-NIDCR-SBIR grants), and in 2005, she became the OMFS Residency Program Director.
Dr. Troulis is a co-editor of 2 textbooks and 1 atlas and has authored over 80 peer-reviewed articles and 20 chapters/invited articles. In addition, she has produced 3 teaching videotapes. Dr. Troulis’ primary clinical interests are in the areas of pediatric oral and maxillofacial surgery, reconstructive surgery, orthognathic surgery and dentoalveolar reconstruction.
In 2015, Dr. Troulis was named Chief of the MGH Department of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery and the Walter C. Guralnick Professor and Chair of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery at Harvard.
