Sinus Augmentation Course

Dates for next course:

  • London: Thursday 11th July - Saturday 13th July 2019 at St George's Hospital and Anatomy Suite and LCIAD
  • Manchester:Thursday 14th November - Saturday 16th November 2019 at The Manchester Surgical Skills and Simulation Centre  and Implant Centres of Excellence (ICE)


The three-day sinus augmentation cadaver course has been run since 2007 by Dr Koray Feran and Professor Cemal Ucer and ENT consultant colleagues Mr Abad Toma and Ms Sarah Little.

There are 2 courses each year:

London: 2019 at St George's Hospital Anatomy Suite and Teaching centre and LCIAD, Dr Feran’s private practice in Wimpole Street in the summer

Manchester at The Manchester Surgical Skills and Simulation Centre and ICE, Professor Ucer's Implant Centres of Excellence new teaching centre in the late autumn

Conceived of by Dr Koray Feran and Prof Cemal Ucer, this course has grown to be one of the most comprehensive hands on bone augmentation courses in the UK. We are also pleased to be ably assisted by Mr Abbad Toma or Ms Sarah Little, Consultant ENT surgeons to cover the anatomical, physiological and pathological aspects of sinus surgery in implant dentistry.

The course, run in conjunction with Botiss UK, is a comprehensive theoretical and practical introduction to advanced sinus and bone augmentation surgery for implant surgeons. The course consists of lectures, hands-on surgical training in sinus and other bone and soft tissue suturing techniques on fresh frozen cadaver heads at the prestigious Wolfson Surgical Suite at the Royal College (London) and at the Manchester Surgical Skills and Simulation Centre Skills Lab. There is also observation of live surgery at Dr Feran’s practice LCIAD in Wimpole Street and by Prof Ucer at ICE . The course will cover everything you need to know about Advanced Bone and Soft tissue Reconstruction Surgery taught by a faculty of eminent medical and dental experts.

  • Aetiology of bone loss
  • Surgical anatomy of the maxillary sinus
  • Indications for sinus augmentation and grafting and restorative considerations
  • Evidence base for maxillary sinus grafting procedures
  • Closed and open sinus lift procedures
  • Regenerative materials, science, handling, assorted dedicated equipment and instrumentation
  • Intra-oral bone harvesting techniques
  • Prevention and management of complications

Dear Koray and Cemal:...

Many Thanks for the excellent course you organised with Professor Vishy Mahadevan. In my career spanning 34 years, I can say with conviction, that I can hardly recall a few that were as good and of a high standard as the one you have just done. What is more, I feel very comfortable doing Sinus Lifts. What a Lift! Many Thanks once again. Best Wishes,  
Dr Vasant Patel

I would like to send my thanks and congratulations on a most wonderful course. It is rare that I leave a course with such a gain in knowledge and  can honestly say that it is the only course that I have ever attended that has left me with a completely new attitude and enthusiasm toward dentistry. I feel so rejuvenated and  really want to improve my quality of care I offer. Thanks again to you both - you will never know how much you have changed the life of someone that was really getting despondent with their career.

My sincere thanks for a great course over the last 3 days. My desired learning outcome was that I would be able to perform the lateral sinus lift in a practice environment in a safe and predictable manner. Your course met that objective admirably. I am much better informed about planning the surgery, the clinical detail of the technique and the hazards. The structure of the course was excellent. I was left with a much better understanding of the regional anatomy, the disease processes and the work of the ENT surgeons in this area. The cadaver surgery was also excellent. I was very fortunate to have 2 sinuses to work on; they were different cadavers with sinuses with quite different bone thicknesses at different stages of pneumatisation, and this was very useful to me. 28 Wimpole St. is a great environment for a course and your (Koray's) staff made us very welcome and looked after us. Please extend my thanks to them. With my sincere thanks to Mr. Abbad Toma and Professor Vishy Mahadevan.

Dr Simon Martin
