Dr. Michael Stosich, a Lake Forest and Grayslake orthodontist and
craniofacial expert, recently left for Montpellier, France to participate
in a French and American medical team collaboration conducting research
on complex orthodontic and craniofacial cases. 

    Stosich's involvement with this team began three years ago during his
time at Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, where he completed a
craniofacial fellowship. U.S. medical and orthodontic experts are working
with French craniofacial and pediatric surgeons on cutting-edge
treatments and research.

    "We're identifying ways of bringing care to cleft patients and those with
Crouzon Syndrome," said Stosich, whose practice -- iDentity Orthodontics
-- provides orthodontics for children and adults. "We're also conducting
lab research and looking at ways to introduce tissue engineering to this

    Stosich has brought a new perspective to the research into treatment
modalities, because an orthodontist is not among the French team. 

    "It's truly a privilege to be part of this research," said Libertyville
orthodontist, Dr. Michael Stosich. 

    Work will focus this year on how to develop trained craniofacial teams.
Accomplishing this will improve the present French scenario where
pediatric surgeons perform a surgical procedure with no orthodontic
guidance or input. Then the patient gets referred to a private practice
orthodontist for further treatment. In the States, every treatment aspect
is integrated from the day the baby is born, and the collaboration among
specialists continues as the child grows. 

    "Our desire is to advance French treatment to the point where an
orthodontist is brought in once a week instead of referring the patient
to a private practice," Stosich said. "It's exhilarating to have a role
in improving treatment for patients globally."
