Dear Friends and Colleagues,
Thank you for showing interest in the ASEAN ORL Temporal Bone and Cochlear Implant Workshop 2019 which is jointly organised by SOHNSS and the Changi General Hospital Department of Otorhinolaryngology - Ear, Nose, Throat, Head and Neck Surgery.
This workshop is targeted at both Residents and Specialists, who are interested in honing their understanding and practice of Otologic surgery. This will be held in our newly renovated lab, which is fully equipped with operative microscopes, and micro-instruments. Cadaveric heads will be used for this workshop, thus providing participants with the opportunity to learn soft tissue management in temporal bone surgery. The schedule of the workshop, lectures and live demonstrations has been planned such that participants will be systematically brought through the dissection of the temporal bone. Beyond basic dissection, the workshop covers lateral skull base techniques, and participants will get to experience the insertion of cochlear implants and middle ear prostheses.
The local and international faculty present will ensure an interesting and fruitful course. We hope to see you soon!
DR YUEN HENG WAI
