ZAGA Zygomatic Course

The Reference in zygomatic implant education

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the ZAGA Course – June 2020 edition is postponed to September 30th, October 1st and October 2nd, 2020, in Barcelona. Current bookings are moved to this date. Please contact us if this date does not allow you to attend the event.

Throughout three days of an intensive course, a description of our experience of more than 25 years with zygomatic implants in the rehabilitation of the extremely resorbed maxilla is shared. The participants acquire knowledge regarding the use of zygomatic implants in different anatomic setups and their related prosthetic rehabilitation. We review different surgical techniques, their benefits, and limitations including the classic intra-sinusal technique, the extra-sinusal technique up to the ZAGA philosophy. We provide detailed insights into the latter in order to prevent surgical and prosthetic complications. Live surgery along with immediate prosthetic delivery is performed and commented. Moreover, zygomatic planning and hands-on training in customized artificial phantoms are performed. Finally, surgical training on cryopreserved human heads is offered.

Dr. Johann Styger

Intense, comprehensive and a must for any surgeon interested in providing this treatment. [Now ZAGA Center Surrey County]

Dr. Alan Meltzer

Excellent experience. I highly recommend this course.

Dr. Miguel Nunes

Fantastic course and organization. Little to be improved. Best course I’ve been to. Congratulations to you all.

Dr. Luis M Bruzual

This is a unique course for those seeking an alternative option for patients with severe maxillary atrophy. The course is very well structured and delivered by Dr. Aparicio who has developed the ZAGA classification that simplifies the technique and makes it less aggressive without compromising the stability of the implant. The first day of theory is delivered by Dr. Aparicio with great real examples, details of the ZAGA classification are explained according to anatomical variations. There is a live surgery and the participant is able to see a real case from the beginning to the end. Each participant had the opportunity to pre-plan their case on a real CBCT from a cadaver specimen. A stereolithographic model was provided to do hands-on practice. The final day the same cadaver specimen was used to place zygomatic implants with the ZAGA technique. Dr. Aparicio and his team have well amalgamated a complete course that will prepare you to start delivering the ZAGA approach as a predictive technique for your patients. Well done ZAGA centers.

Dr. Giuseppe Piemontese

I have taken several zygoma courses before but think this is the best because of the organization with real DICOM files and because of the incredible theoretical part of Dr. Aparicio. Congratulations!

A wonderful program highly recommended. This is the absolute future of complex reconstruction, and Dr. Aparicio is clearly the foremost expert in this approach. Bravo!

Prof. Cemal Ucer

One of the most structured and well-delivered courses I’ve seen. Carlos Aparicio is an outstanding surgeon and an amazing educator. Evidence-based ZAGA success code will definitely re-establish the role of the Zygomatic implants as a real alternative therapeutic option for the rehabilitation of the severely atrophic Maxilla. I am looking forward to working closely with Dr. Carlos Aparicio and his ZAGA team in the future. [Now ZAGA Center Manchester]

An amazing course. Dr. Aparicio is on a mission to spread the best zygoma implant technique and to improve it as best as is possible. At a time in his career where he could stop and take it easy, you can see him trying to make it a life quest! Thank you and much respect to you all.
