Endoscopic Ear Surgery is a growing approach to otology and in certain cases has advantages over conventional microscope-based techniques. It is a useful skill as part of an otologist’s arsenal for selected cases.

Locally, endoscopic ear surgery has already been performed with success in a number of cases by Dr Alexander Saxby(RPAH), Dr Jonathan Kong (RPAH) and by Dr Nirmal Patel (RNSH), and registrars are already being exposed to the technique during their rotations.

Update 27th April 2014:

Registration by full payment is NOW OPEN for the EES Course on the registration page.

NB: Cost of fresh cadaver heads (one whole head per dissector) is significant, but this provides the highest quality for our EES course.
