  • Overview

    Neck surgery has undergone recent advances with the introduction of remote endoscopic access. In addition to the benefit of being scarless surgery, these approaches benefit from image magnification, light optimization and excellent patient recovery.


    The objectives of this course are to teach both the axillary-areolar access technique and the oral access technique. Fundamental aspects of the use of these approaches are presented by a group of experienced surgeons. There will be discussion of clinical cases, tips & Tricks, and over 6 hours of hands-on training on cadaver and porcine model.


    The future of thyroid and parathyroid surgery will involve the use of these techniques, which should increasingly become the domain of the 21st century head and neck surgeon.
