SKILLS LAB IN PHONOSURGERY

Hands-on Workshop, October, 18-19, 2024

Dear colleagues,
We are pleased to announce an advanced workshop designed to provide comprehensive knowledge and hands-on experience in the field of laryngology, with a focus on phonosurgical procedures and office-based interventions, including state-of-the-art laser surgery techniques.
These procedures are now the preferred method for treating a wide range of laryngeal diseasesand disorders.
Our workshop integrates a blend of advanced endoscopy and phonosurgery, covering both indirect transoral and transnasal approaches. It is structured around key „hot topics“ in the field as well as basic surgical techniques. Through expert-led demonstrations, participants will gain insight into the critical decision-making process that applies to both standard and complex cases.
A significant portion of our two-day workshop is dedicated to laboratory-based hands-on training, emphasizing the essential skills required for successful office-based procedures and fiber-guided laser surgery. A highlight of the workshop will be an exploration of the capabilities of blue light lasers.
Participants will have ample opportunity to practice and refine their skills during the hands on sessions of the workshop, ensuring a deep understanding and competency in the latest surgical techniques in laryngology.
We are looking forward to your participation.
Welcome to Hamburg
