Sample Prostheses: Alejandro Padilla
Anaplastology is a specialized healthcare field that provides patient-specific, restorative prostheses for patients who have suffered trauma to or loss of anatomy due to injury, disease, or congenital origin. Customized prosthetic rehabilitation may be an alternative treatment option to surgical reconstruction. Anaplastology services are intended to restore affected anatomical features of the body including but not limited to the face, hands, feet, or breast.
The IAA promotes quality patient care by supporting the development of best practices in anaplastology through educational conferences, networking, publication, and advocacy opportunities.
Two Days of Inspiring Discussion
June 4 & 5, 2021

We admit this year’s theme is somewhat abstract. What do we mean by the dance? This theme aims to broadly recognize how anaplastology providers, our patients, and this organization have found themselves needing to gracefully navigate around various challenges, confront resistance and demonstrate resilience. Dance involves identifying a beat, establishing rhythm, adapting to changes, ups and downs, quick and slow, leadership, partnership, and trust. Dance can be methodical and leaves room for interpretation and exploration. There are myriad metaphors we can apply to draw relationships between dance and our work as clinical anaplastologists, the evolution and future of our profession, and even our patients’ experiences throughout the processes of rehabilitation.
This conference schedule will include presenters who creatively embrace this theme in sharing about their research and experiences. Topics we aim to address include, but are not limited to:
Materials and techniques
3d applications to treatment planning and fabrication
Alternative treatment options
Scope of practice evolution/expansion
Business development and best practices
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
We look forward to sharing a robust program highlighting the innovative and collaborative approaches various professionals take to achieve this goal.
