Live injection course: Dr Azizzadeh demonstrating technique

The 13th International Facial Nerve Symposium took places in Los Angeles in August 2017 and attracted over 500 guests from more than 40 countries. Hosted by Dr. Babak Azizzadeh and Dr. William Slattery III, the 13th International Facial Nerve Symposium was the largest facial nerve conference to date. Over the course of four days, 400 speakers gave over 650 lectures to showcase a multi-specialty approach to facial nerve care and the latest advances in facial nerve treatment, including Facial Plastic Surgery, Neuromuscular Retraining, Otolaryngology, Neuro-otology and Oculoplastic Surgery. The Symposium successfully helped push the frontiers for a greater understanding of facial nerve disorders and treatment.
