This course on temporal bone surgery includes dynamic lectures from nationally and internationally recognized otologists and otolaryngologists and features a hands-on
cadaver dissection laboratory. Participants will learn the latest information on research and surgical techniques to treat temporal bone disorders.
This anatomical and surgical refresher course will enable otologists and otolaryngologists to review temporal bone surgical procedures on cadavers under the instruction of nationally recognized otologists.
This course should enable participants to:
• Outline practical approaches in diagnosing and treating hearing and balance disorders in children, adults and the elderly.
• Review the medical management of hearing loss with ossiculoplasty, aural rehabilitation and amplification, and implantable hearing devices.
• Select appropriate surgical approaches to manage chronic ear disease,cholesteatoma and alterations in hearing function.
• Review current evaluations and treatment of neurotologic disorders such as epidermoids, glomus and schwannomas.
• Evaluate new treatment options for hearing restoration.
This course is designed for practicing otolaryngologists, otologists, audiologists, hearing and balance researchers, and general practitioners with an interest in hearing and balance dysfunction.
