UPDATE: next course on Monday, September 16th 2024

Dear colleagues,

Minimally invasive thyroid surgery is becoming more and more popular. However, even for dedicated thyroid surgeons or experienced laparoscopic surgeons, proper training is necessary to learn this new method.

We are very happy to announce the fourth Viennese cadaver course on transoral endocscopic thyroidectomy vestibular approach (TOETVA) on Monday, September 16th, 2024.

The course will also cover new techniques (TOVARA – retroauricular specimen retrieval), transoral parathyroid surgery and central neck dissection. This year we also focus on pitfalls and intraoperative complications, parathyroid autofluorescence, intraoperative neuromonitoring as well as „tips and tricks“ by an international faculty of dedicated endocrine surgeons with broad experience in transoral endoscopic surgery.

This year we are honored to welcome Prof. Özer Makay (Izmir, Turkey) in the faculty.

Welcome to Vienna!
