Welcome message

We are honoured to offer you again a team of excellent lecturers who will come and share their knowledge and expertise with the course participants during two days packed with theoretical information combined with practical experience. 

Unfortunately Prof. Danielle Marchioni could not make it to the 2023 course in person and joined us through his excellent prerecorded talks. He kindly agreed to personally attend and show us not only his surgical skills. He is the world leader in the endoscopic ear surgery who pushes the limits of the field toward inner ear. It may not be generally known that he is the author of middle ear drawings used by many around the world. Dr. Marco Bonali from Modena is not only an excellent endoscopic ear surgeon, he is a da Vinci robotic head and neck surgeon as well. Dr. Jan Vodička is one of the first endoscopic ear surgeons in Czechia. He has started with TEES quite a few years ago and ever since he has performed numerous endoscopic or combined approach cases. He is an excellent tutor tirelessly circulating among course attendees to share his expertise.

The course will be conducted in the modern facility at the Faculty of Medicine and Dentistry of The Palacky University in Olomouc. The companies Olympus and Radix CZ will provide us with state of art endoscopic towers, specifically designed endoscopic instruments. Additionally, course participants will be given an opportunity to practise microsurgical technique under endoscopic guidence in a 3D printed Otoskills trainer.

We are looking forward to meeting you in Olomouc

Course Director


Introduction to the course
The course includes lectures, temporal bone dissection held in a step-by-step mode and panel discussions. Variety of lectures will cover all aspects of endoscopic ear surgery – principles, starting with ‘How to begin‘, equipment and instrumentation, OR set-up, raising tympanomeatal flap, endoscopic ear anatomy, basic and advanced techniques. The main emphasis will be given to hands-on temporal bone dissection.

Course objectives
This course aims to introduce endoscopic ear surgery techniques to ENT specialists and trainees. It will cover endoscopic ear surgery in its entirety. The course should provide necessary knowledge and expertise to allow participants to incorporate endoscopic ear surgery into their clinical practice.

Target audience
The course is intended for otorhinolaryngology residents, otology fellows, and otologists who would like to begin or deepen their knowledge and refine their skills in endoscopic ear surgery. The number of participants is strictly limited to 20. The course itself and lab dissection are suitable for both junior trainees and practising endoscopic ear surgeons. We offer an observer registration as well.
