Welcome to Cholesteatoma!
Dear Colleagues,
I am delighted to invite you all to Cholesteatoma2018 - First International Cholesteatoma Live Surgical Workshop and Conference in Bangalore, India. Buoyed by the tremendous response to “Otology 25” conference which was conducted last year, I have decided to conduct a dedicated, single-faculty live surgical workshop exclusively on cholesteatoma, on popular demand.

A surgeon's success depends upon his knowledge and skill, which are the two edges of his sword. Most of the workshops impart either theoretical knowledge or practical skills. You will be surprised to witness a new scenario wherein theoretical concept of Cholesteatoma and the corresponding surgical procedure will be demonstrated back to back. Yes, this workshop is planned and designed to teach in the best way possible to sharpen both edges of the sword.
The surgical cases for this workshop will be chosen to showcase the three main goals of an otologist with regard to the disease - Prevention of cholesteatoma formation, prevention of recurrence following surgery, and eliminating cavity problems. I will also be showcasing a number of presentations done by me at various international conferences and a variety of live cholesteatoma surgeries.

All the live surgeries will be relayed via 4K technology using  Vario Zeiss microscope with 4K camera.

I expect all 873 delegates of Otology 25 to attend this unique event, along with their colleagues and friends and I am sure this event will be of great benefit to each and every otologist.
I am very sure that this workshop will be one of its kind, and will be internationally acclaimed. I invite you all to this august and unmatched festival which is bound to mutually benefit us.

I request you all to register for Cholesteatoma2018 and make this event a grand success.
Looking forward to seeing you all in Bangalore.

I am conducting this workshop in memory of my beloved teacher, Late Dr.A.Mahadevaiah, who was a pioneer in cholesteatoma surgery, and whose teachings, ethics and surgical skills, I try to emulate everyday.
