On behalf of  the Belgian Association of Oral and Maxillofacial Surgery, we mourn on Professor Doctor Hugo Obwegeser, who passed away last week. Professor Obwegeser was an honorary member of our Society. He was a pioneer in Maxillofacial surgery  and became a real icon in this field. He was a lighting example for many Trainees not only in Maxillo-Facial Surgery, but also for trainees in the adjacent specialties. Colleagues from all over the world came to visit him in the Zurich Centre and learned from his inspiring drive to bring things further. On top of this all he founded the European Association of Cranio-Maxillo-Facial surgery, a Society we’re all proud of!
Professor Obwegeser: Thank you and fare well!

Prof. Obewegeser
