Update on Celiac Disease

Presented by Stanford Health Library

Celiac disease is a genetically linked disease with an environmental trigger that can be set off by foods containing gluten. This elicits an autoimmune response that causes damage to the small intestine. Celiac disease is a surprisingly common, though frequently undiagnosed disease. This talk will provide insight into celiac disease, its symptoms, diagnosis and treatment.

Minimally Invasive Aesthetic and Functional Jaw Surgery — State of the Art

Presented by Stanford Health Library

Traditionally patients with an imbalanced facial appearance, dental and orthodontic problems, and sleep and breathing disturbances, need to undergo orthognathic “jaw” surgery. It has recently been shown that facial growth can be stimulated and orthodontic treatment be accelerated by minimally invasive procedures possibly avoiding the need for jaw surgery. In this talk the current state of the art of jaw surgery and minimally invasive procedures will be reviewed.
