International hands-on courses on "Reconstruction of the middle ear" and "Implantable Hearing System" held in Dresden

International otosurgeons were visiting the Dresden ORL-HNS clinic and the ERCD this week to learn about the current state of the art in ear surgery methods, middle ear mechanics and hearing prostheses. Professor Zahnert and his staff demonstrated e.g. cochlear implant operations, which can be used to treat even complete loss of hearing, as well as the use of passive ossicular prostheses and implantable hearing aids. The newly built "Haus 32" offers the newest and most advanced operating rooms in all of Europe.

The ORL-HNS clinic is successfully developing such highly advanced devices, and both research and medical staff are proud to convey their knowledge to their international guests. The cutting edge research being brought to clinical application is made possible through the seamless integration of the ERCD (Ear Research Center Dresden) and the SCIC (Saxonian Cochlear Implant Center) into the medical work performed at the clinic.
