World's largest meeting of ear, nose and throat doctors

Alexandria, VA - The 2011 Annual Meeting & OTO EXPO of the American Academy of Otolaryngology Head and Neck Surgery Foundation (AAO-HNSF), the largest meeting of ear, nose, and throat doctors in the world, will convene September 11-14, 2011 in San Francisco, CA.

Featuring more than 386 scientific research sessions, 468 posters, and several hundred instruction course hours for attendees, the annual meeting is a unique opportunity for journalists from around the world to cover breaking science and medical news. Reporters will have access to the latest research and clinical advances in the field of otolaryngology head and neck surgery.

Otolaryngologists are specialty physicians and surgeons dedicated to diagnosing and treating disorders of the ear, nose, throat, and related structures of the head and neck. As many as 9,000 such specialists from North and South America, Europe, Asia, Africa, and Australia attend to learn the latest research findings in patient care.

The scientific program and poster sessions will address medical disorders that are among the most common afflictions to all ages and both sexes. These include hearing loss, sleep disorders, allergies, ear infections, voice disorders, sinusitis, head and neck cancer, and pediatric ENT health issues. Additional sessions will focus on the role of HPV in otolaryngology, the state of the science in treating food allergies, and new guidelines for the treatment of hoarseness.
