Dear Participants of the 1st Workshop of the European Head & Neck Society (EHNS) on transoral robotic surgery in head and neck cancer
We would like to welcome you to our first workshop on transoral robotic surgery in head and neck cancer organised by the European Head and Neck Society.

Transoral robotic surgery has gained within the last years more and more interest and support. There is a consensus of head and neck surgeons on the importance of transoral surgery in general and transoral robotic surgery in particular. Multiple trials are currently ongoing that are exploring the role of this type of surgery in the context of various malignant diseases mostly of the oropharynx, but transoral robotic surgery goes beyond treating malignant diseases of the oropharynx only.
Within the course that we have organised for you, we would like to show you what transoral robotic surgery can do in the oropharynx and beyond. The scheme of the course is consisting of two parts, where within the 1st part we will discuss indications, anatomy, decision making (also in terms of the adjuvant treatment), and the role of transoral robotic surgery in various areas of the upper aero digestive tract. The aspects of cost effectiveness will also be adressed. In a round table at the end of the 1st part, indications and contraindications for using TORS will be discussed.
The 2nd part of the workshop is meant to familiarize you with the procedures for various localisations. This will be done in the context of life surgery and surgical videos presented and explained by experts in the field. We will here not only discuss the surgery of the oropharynx but also discuss supraglottic laryngectomies, hypopharyngeal resections, parapharyngeal space approaches and nasopharyngeal resections. Since we anticipate interest on endoscopic thyroid and neck dissection we will discuss this subject as well.
The evening event will take place in “Le chalet Suisse” and it will be a typical Swiss evening which we are certain you will enjoy.
We all look forward seeing you on the course here in Lausanne in November.
