The Columbia University Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery is proud to announce its brand-new Temporal Bone Surgical Dissection Lab. A ribbon cutting was held earlier this year. This state-of-the-art facility features nine operative stations for learning the complex anatomy of the base of the skull including the temporal bone and the ear.
Each station features operating room-grade equipment to make training exercises as realistic as possible. In addition, live screens at every station allow instructors to closely supervise trainee progress. The laboratory will host a regularly scheduled dissection course for Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery residents. In addition, it will host regional, national, and international courses to teach advanced ear, temporal bone, and skull base surgical techniques.
