Live not as thought there were a thousand years ahead of you. Fate is at your elbow; make yourself good while life and power are still yours. – Marcus Aurelius

Moenie leef asof daar ‘n duisend jaar vir jou voorlé nie. Die noodlot staan reeds teen jou elmboog; lrrf deugsaam terwyl jy nog lewenskragtig is. ( vertaal F Bredenkamp. )

WELCOME

The International Working Group on Endoscopic Ear Surgery aims to develop the method of endoscopic ear surgery in conjunction with the use of the microscope to provide the best possible surgical approaches to treat patients.

WHO

The IWGEES – International Working Group on Endoscopic Ear Surgery is a group of highly specialized and motivated ear surgeons who are mastering Endoscopic Ear Surgery.  The group promotes strict methodological research and teaching of the approach, believing in the advantages that endoscopy carries in the field of otology as well as the future of the technique in dealing with middle ear disease.

WHERE

We offer regular courses and meetings for members and guests of IWGEES. You can view our upcoming sessions and apply to attend in a city near you.

WHAT

The use of the endoscope enables the surgeon to visualize past the shaft of larger surgical instruments, such as drills and curettes.  This allows better visualization and understanding of contextual anatomy of the ear.

HOW

The IWGEES group members have published several videos of endoscopic procedures. Head over to our ‘How’ page to get involved and learn more about ear endoscopic procedures.
