The Society was established in June, 1983 in Montreal as the Craniofacial Chapter of the International Confederation for Plastic, Reconstructive and Aesthetic Surgery. The establishing members constitute the 18 renowned plastic surgeons in the world with an enthusiasm for and pivot on craniofacial surgery. At first named the International Society of Craniomaxillofacial Surgery, the association renamed itself as the International Society of Craniomaxillofacial Surgery to more absolutely reflect the work of the enrolment and to perceive the uniqueness of the fields. The establishing members then represented, and in numerous occurrences still do represented, the leading plastic surgeons in the world with an enthusiasm for and accentuation on craniofacial surgery.
The Society's first meeting was held in La Napoule, France in 1985, with Paul Tessier directing as privileged President. In New Delhi, India, the meeting was held in 1987 at the time of the International Confederation meeting, under the supervision of Dr. Paul Tessier.
ISCFS met in 1989, in Florence, Italy, Ian Munro directing; in 1991, the meeting was in Santiago de Compostela, Spain, taking after the International Confederation meeting, Dr. Joseph McCarthy directing. In 1993, the ISCFS met in Oaxaca, Mexico, Fernando Ortiz-Monasterio managing. St. Tropez, France, Daniel Marchac directed the meeting in 1995.
In the United States, ISCFS met the first time The Seventh Biennial Congress of the Society. The ISCFS assemble in Santa Fe, New Mexico, September 15-17, 1997, directed by Linton A. Whitaker.
The Seventh biennial meeting was gone to by a bigger number of registrants than were available at the past meeting, proceeding with the unfaltering biennial increments in participation. At the ISCFS's most recent meeting, from 29 countries 270 registrants attended which was held in France.
The biennial Congress' paper presentations have advanced from depictions of essential procedures of how to do craniofacial surgery, at the first meeting, to results studies and presentations of new methods and technology.
Most recently, meeting papers have tended to such matters as: an attention on molecular biology as it identifies with craniofacial development and improvement, negligibly intrusive strategies for treatment of craniofacial anomalies, such as a diversion osteogenesis, the utilization of endoscopic systems, application of advanced imaging techniques, and the proceeding with appraisal of strategy right now being used.Read More»
