We took a break from the throes of the Mondial Soccer Games to meet at Moria Periodontal Center for a study session. Our guest lecturer, Dr Adi Rachmiel, specializes in oral and maxillofacial surgery and is the deputy head of Rambam Hospital’s Oral & Maxillofacial Department. His topic was “Lifting the Alveolar Ridge with Distraction Osteogenesis: Myth or Reality.”
Israel is unrepresented in the Mondial Games, but when it comes to the distraction method, Dr Rachmiel brings Israel great honor as one of its pioneers and as an international expert in the method’s application.
Dr Rachmiel’s lecture roused strong interest, along with the case histories and visual displays, followed by lively discussion.
