CELEBRATING COLLABORATION

The International Anaplastology Association and la Sociedad Latinoamericana de Rehabilitación Bucomaxilofacial each have a rich history of organizing educational conferences for the purpose of sharing knowledge and experience for the advancement of anaplastology and bucomaxillofacial rehabilitation. This year is the IAA's 34th Annual Educational Conference and the BMF's 15th Biennial Congress.


We are thrilled to come together to host the first Joint Conference between our two organizations!

We aim to provide an enriching experience this year in Lima where we will celebrate the possibilities that arise from continued collaboration and exploration of innovative approaches to treatment of complex head and neck conditions.

SOBRE LA BMF

La Sociedad Latinoamericana de Rehabilitación de la Cara y Prótesis Buco-Maxilo-Facial fue creada en 1977 en la ciudad de San Pablo por el Prof. Edmundo Pinto da Fonseca, el cual siendo especialista en la disciplina y profesor de la misma  en  la  Facultad de Odontología de la USP, organizó ese año un encuentro científico de la especialidad, invitando a todas las figuras más destacadas del mundo y logrando un evento de altísimo nivel en su contenido y que sirvió de marco para el surgimiento de esta nueva institución que pretendía asociar y vincular entre si a todos los especialistas que en Brasil y demás países  en  América Latina, tuvieran a su cargo la rehabilitación de los pacientes mutilados en el área de boca, cabeza y cuello.

Este año, la
 Sociedad Latinoamericana de Rehabilitación Buco-Maxilo-Facial (BMF) será la anfitriona de su 15º congreso bienal. Estamos encantados de celebrar la colaboración a través de nuestra reunión conjunta con la Asociación Internacional de Anaplastología. 

ABOUT THE IAA

In 1980 Walter Spohn and a group of like-minded colleagues founded the American Anaplastology Association (AAA) at Stanford University, in Palo Alto, California. Mr. Spohn wanted the AAA to serve as an open and inspiring "Information Exchange," welcoming all of the multidiscipline specialists involved in prosthetic rehabilitation, and to promote coordination and communication among professionals working along different but related paths in the service of the patient.

 

In 1971, Mr. Spohn became a consultant in Stanford University's Department of Surgery in Palo Alto, California. Mr. Spohn was given the opportunity to develop a formal training program for students interested in facial and somato prosthetic restorations. He called this career track, "Anaplastology." This two-year degree course curriculum included art and the basic sciences, materials and methods, ethics and business practices.

 

Mr. Spohn's legacy is the creation of the American Anaplastology Association. The AAA grew from a small group of dedicated professionals to a multinational forum of medical, dental, artistic and scientific professionals providing prosthetic restorative care for patients and advancing the knowledge of materials and techniques in the field of anaplastology.

 

In 2008 the American Anaplastology Association voted to change the name of the organization to the International Anaplastology Association in recognition of the emerging global profession of clinical anaplastology.  Today, the IAA has some of the most talented professionals in the world.
