The International Surgical Sleep Society is the world’s major organization dedicated to snoring and sleep apnea surgery. I am honored to be the current President of the ISSS and am excited with new developments that we have recently announced.
Next ISSS Meeting: Sao Paulo, Brazil in April 2016
The ISSS has focused their efforts on major scientific meetings that bring together the world’s experts in snoring and sleep apnea surgery. The 7th ISSS meeting that will be held in Sao Paulo, Brazil on April 15-16, 2016, and will build on the tremendous successes of previous meetings. Details and registration information are available at the conference website. Some of the highlights are:
- Outstanding faculty from around the world, including both the speakers and moderators leading the discussion in each session
- Two lecture rooms running simultaneously, enhancing the program and enabling substantial time for discussion that should be one of the best parts of the meeting
- Expanded coverage of a full spectrum of topics in sleep surgery, including airway evaluation, surgical techniques, pediatric sleep surgery, oral and maxillofacial surgery, and oral appliances
- Oral and poster research presentations: online abstract submission, with deadline January 20, 2016
We hope all surgeons who are interested in snoring and sleep apnea surgery will be able to join us in Sao Paulo for what promises to be a fantastic educational program in a beautiful country!
