02 March 2018

On Monday March 5, 2018, the HYGEIA Hospital Endoscopic Paranasal & Skull Base Surgery Department is participating in the 3rd LION-ESS (Live International Otolaryngology Network – Endoscopic Sinus and Skull Base Surgery) Broadcast.

Selected surgical procedures that will take place from 9am to 6pm on that day will be streamed live through the www.lion-web.org platform.

A total of 6 international centers of excellence from 6 countries are participating in this year’s LION-ESS broadcast: Switzerland, USA, Spain, Italy, UK and Greece. The procedures will be performed by 8 world-renowned surgeons:

  • Daniel Simmen – Hislanden Clinic, Zurich, Switzerland
  • Jim Palmer – University of Pennsylvania, Philadelphia, USA
  • Riccardo Carrau and Daniel Prevedello – Wexner Medical Center Ohio State University, USA
  • Manuel Bernal – Spekelsen Hospital Quiron University, Valencia, Spain
  • Paolo Castelnuovo – University of Insubria, Varese, Italy
  • Anshul Sama – The Spire Hospital, Nottingham, UK
  • Christos Georgalas – HYGEIA Hospital, Athens, Greece

The broadcast will include all the centers, with free-of-charge online access. Viewers will have the chance to interact directly with the surgeons (Q&A) via the two moderators, Ashok Rokade and Zara Patel, who will be located in Utrecht.

As noted by Mr Christos Georgalas, Director of the HYGEIA Hospital Endoscopic Paranasal Sinus & Skull Base Surgery Department, “Our participation in LION-ESS confirms that, despite its relocation from the Netherlands to Greece, the ESA – Endoscopic Paranasal Sinus & Skull Base Surgery Department continues to be one of the main international centers of excellence, both in clinical terms as well as in education and academic terms, with numerous international collaborations and fellows.”

Note that more than 10,000 health professionals from around the globe had watched the previous event.
