Innovations in Endoscopic Ear Surgery

  • Seiji KakehataEmail author


This book Innovations in Endoscopic Ear Surgery is designed with two objectives in mind: (1) to introduce new and exciting innovations, as our title implies in endoscopic ear surgery, and specifically transcanal endoscopic ear surgery (TEES), to those who are already experienced TEES surgeons and (2) to spark interest in those ear surgeons who are either unfamiliar with TEES or familiar with TEES but unsure of its value and/or safety.
