I’d appreciate if you can forward the following announcement to your respective society:The field of robotics in head and neck surgery has grown tremendously within the last five years and represents the successful translation of robotic technology in the care of the head and neck cancer patient. This has greatly facilitated the development of minimally invasive and aesthetic approaches for the treatment of head and neck cancers and thyroid disorders reducing the morbidity of past treatment approaches. As the body of evidence supporting transoral approaches to the head and neck grows, so too does the knowledge base of adjuvant treatment including radiation-oncology, medical-oncology, and speech-language pathology. It is this multi-disciplinary approach to patient care that our course will focus on. We will go beyond the mere nuts and bolts of transoral surgery, but focus on the rapidly advancing intersection between patient care and technology. As a joint effort between the Johns Hopkins Department of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck Surgery and the Whiting School of Engineering, this will be the first course of its kind to bring together an international, renowned group of clinicians and world-class engineers in the field of robotics and haptic research who are advancing the field of head and neck robotic and transoral surgery.The goal of this course is to provide the attendee with up-to-date knowledge in state-of-the-art robotic head and neck surgery, transoral surgery, adjuvant treatment, and emerging robotic technologies. This course will also identify current clinical challenges and foster discussions as to how current and future clinical trials in collaboration with technologic advancements may further facilitate advancements in patient care.Please take a look at our exciting Program below. Note that transportation will be provided to NYC for those planning on attending the IFHNOS/AHNS Congress afterwards.Jeremy Richmon, MDAssistant Professor, Otolaryngology-Head & Neck SurgeryDirector, Robotic Head and Neck SurgeryHarry Quon, MD, MSAssociate Professor of Radiation Oncology and Molecular Radiation Sciences, Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery and OncologyCo-Director, Multidisciplinary Head and Neck ProgramRussell Taylor, PhDProfessor, Department of Computer ScienceWhiting School of Engineering Johns Hopkins UniversityDirector, Engineering Research Center for Computer-Integrated Surgical Systems and Technology (CISST ERC)Registration at: http://www.hopkinscme.edu/coursedetail.aspx/80033089FeesPhysicians:Before Dec 31, 2013: $450.00Early Registration (Until April 1, 2014): $500.00Late Registration (After April 1, 2014): $550.00Allied Practitioners (SLPs and nurses,):Before Dec 31, 2013: $350.00Early Registration (Until April 1, 2014): $400.00Late Registration (After April 1, 2014): $450.00Engineers:Before Dec 31, 2013: $250.00Early Registration (Until April 1, 2014): $300.00Late Registration (After April 1, 2014): $350.00Single day: $175Residents and Students:Early Registration (Until April 1, 2014): $100.00Late Registration (After April 1, 2014): $120.00Transportation to NYC: TBDGuest FacultyEun Chang Choi, MD, PhDProfessor of OtorhinolaryngologyYonsei University College of MedicineSouth KoreaDavid Goldenberg, MD, FACSDirector of Head and Neck SurgeryProfessor of Surgery and OncologyPenn State Hershey Medical CenterHershey, PennsylvaniaBruce Haughey, MBChB, MSKimbrough Professor of Otolaryngology – Head and Neck SurgeryDirector, Head and Neck Cancer CenterWashington University School of Medicine in St. LouisSt. Louis, MissouriMichael Hinni, MDProfessor of OtolaryngologyMayo ClinicPhoenix, ArizonaEmad Kandil, MD, FACSEdward G.
