Historical Background

Following the introduction of ultrasonic surgical devices in oromaxillofacial surgery, oral surgery and  dentalimplantology a group of craniomaxillofacial surgeons and dental practitioners from Austria and Germany formed a study club to share research and information. This European study club eventually concluded that an international organization was essential to foster education and advancement in this field. As a result, the International Academy for Ultrasonic Surgery and Implantology was formed.

The first Annual Meeting of International Academy for Ultrasonic Surgery and Implantology was held in May, 2007, in Vienna , Austria . An Executive Board was elected to include representatives from omf-surgery, oral surgery, periodontics, prosthodontics, general surgery, ENT-, neuro-, and cosmetic surgery and general medicine.

The International Academy for Ultrasonic Surgery and Implantology has become associated within a short time period with leading professional national organizations and Universities in Germany, Poland, Ukraine, Greece, France, Egypt, Lebanon, Singapore, Asia, South America, Australia and the USA, numbers still growing.
