Since 1997 "Vienna Hands-on Dissection Courses" has been an outstanding platform for highly professional training on fresh specimens, for both, dental implantology and aesthetic and reconstructive surgery. In more than 200 postgraduate-courses, doctors from over 80 nations, experienced the knowledge of famous lecturers.

These are our ambitious goals:

  best lecturers from all over the world
  demanding and relevant topics
  state-of-the art facilities
  personal attendance from our experienced team
  positive & personal atmosphere
course language: English

During our 2- or 3- days "Hands-on-Courses" you will perform standard and advanced procedures, step by step (80% hands-on, 20% lectures).


The completely new, technically highly advanced ANATOMY TRAINING CENTER of the Medical University of Vienna has been inaugurated in 2008. That venue guarantees the best standard for a privileged post graduate training and is a real state of the art location for fresh specimen dissection courses in Europe. It has a capacity of 42 dissection places, each equipped with all material required to perform your training, depending on the demands of the course chosen.

After a very short theoretical introduction of the surgical procedure by the lecturer you can monitor the life surgery on the flat screen close to you. You accompany each detail in “real time”, simulating a close 1:1 reality on your “patient”.

After the teaching and the instruction you will perform the surgical training on the fresh skull, guided by us, step by step. A maximum of two doctors is assigned to one fresh (not embalmed) skull, a well trained team is always around you, to help and assist.

The team Dr. Fock/Prof. Dr. Traxler has given more than 200 international courses by now and is fit to handle each situation during your course. Being pioneers in that field they know how to meet your specific needs, to get you familiar with both the surgical procedures and the delicate anatomical structures of the face and neck. There will always be a focus on pitfalls and danger zones for each surgical procedure. There is absolutely no need to be intimidated or concerned with your anatomy and surgery knowledge as you are guided through the entire process.

80-90% of the course time is hands-on training after in in-depth explanation.
