Billroth Memorial Laryngectomy Conference

23 nov 2023 09:00 - 24 nov 2023 16:00, Antoni van Leeuwenhoek

150th Anniversary of Total Laryngectomy

For 150 years, the total laryngectomy has preserved its place as the primary surgical solution for patients suffering of advanced larynx cancer or as a salvage procedure for patients with recurrent disease after organ preservation treatment.

This conference is celebrating the 150th anniversary of Total Laryngectomy in honor of Prof. Dr. Theodor Billroth (1829-1894) by addressing development of new surgical techniques, major achievements in postlaryngectomy speech and pulmonary rehabilitation, future perspectives of organ preservation therapies and possible benefits of silent speech research.
