IWGEES = International Working Group on Endoscopic Ear Surgery

International Working Group on Endoscopic Ear Surgery is a global group of highly specialized and motivated otolaryngologists and otologists who master endoscopic ear surgery, believing in the benefits of endoscopy. The group seeks to promote excellence in technique, instrument development and field research. It organizes courses and publishes publications on the endoscopic approach in the field of otology, and in particular in the treatment of middle and inner ear disease. Examples of recent publications, the result of the collaboration of various members of the group are: - Bilateral congenital cholesteatoma: Surgical treatment and considerations.
