Through videos and clinical photographs he described how he has evolved his surgical technique over the years in order to get best results in these cases, Prof.Saman   Waranakulsuriya OBE and WHO authority on oral cancers was in the audience and greatly appreciated the innovative surgical technique- . Dr.Kapre’s Mandibular Mucoperiosteal Flap.

Dr. Kapre also outlined the efforts taken by Government and Rotary Club for awareness amongst the public about ill effects of tobacco chewing habit.

With growing Asian population in the United Kingdom, the doctors there are beginning to see patients suffering from Oral Submucous  Fibrosis, but are not clear about its management.  Therefore the surgeons who attended this lecture benefitted a great deal to learn the management of this condition. Truly a case of “East teaches West”.
