9th International Symposium on Middle Ear Mechanics in Research and Otology

All registration packages include three days of scientific meetings, breakfast and lunch daily, coffee and snack breaks, and admission the Welcome Reception and Conference Banquet. Attendees will also have the option to register for a post-course excursion to Rocky Mountain National Park and the Middle-Ear Mechanics Surgical Seminar that will be held in the afternoon preceding the Welcome Reception.

The Middle-Ear Mechanics Surgical Seminar is designed for otologic surgeons who wish to improve their understanding of the principle middle ear mechanics that underlie successful tympanoplasty and ossiculoplasty surgery. Lectures, case studies, and discussion will be led by an international team of surgeons and directed to advanced training in tympanoplasty techniques, ossicular chain reconstruction and stapes surgery.
