Dear Colleagues and Friends,

As President of the Organizing Committee of the 2019 World Phonosurgery Congress, I have the great pleasure of inviting you to participate in this Congress that will take place on September 5 and 6, 2019 in the city of Buenos Aires, Argentina.

This event is organized by the International Association of Phonosurgery – IAP together with the Sociedad Argentina de la Voz - SAV which will be the IAP’s 14th meeting  and the SAV’s  2nd Congress.

The program of this Congress will include the most important topics of interest in laryngology, voice, swallowing and specially phonosurgery. The aim is to exchange knowledge and strengthen ties between colleagues in a globalized world

The Sociedad Argentina de la Voz is honored to be the host of this event, welcoming professionals from different countries who will share their experiences and their friendship in this unique meeting in our field.

The Congress will also be a very good opportunity for those who do not know our country and its capital city to discover its culture and its people.

We are sure that this Congress will enrich us all and renew our enthusiasm and passion for such an inspiring subject as the human voice.

We hope to see you all here,

                                                                        Iris Rodríguez, MD

IAP - Presidential Letter

On behalf of the International Association of Phonosurgery and the Sociedad Argentina de la Voz I am pleased to welcome you to World Phonosurgery Congress 2019 and the 14th meeting of the International Association of Phonosurgery. We are excited to share this program with our hosts, Sociedad Argentina de la Voz, and I am sure that this meeting will be an intellectually stimulating and complete educational experience related to the study of the human voice and surgical treatment. We have worked to bring to you an unprecedented group of international speakers in an effort to present a contemporary and worldwide approach to voice science and care. The meeting is set in the backdrop of the natural beauty and unique cultural environment of Argentina and we hope that you will enjoy not only the excellent education program but the social events, opportunities to connect with colleagues from many nations and enjoy the wonders of Buenos Aires and Argentina.

The International Association of Phonosurgery was founded in 1990 with its first meeting in Belgrade, Yugoslavia and a Mission which “Gathers voice surgeons and scientists of related disciplines, devoted to promote better voice care around the world by means of organizing and supporting educational and training activities, and also by cooperating with different international entities in order to facilitate the access to state of the art technology and training in areas of the world in need of progress.” The name was changed from the original “Phonosurgeons” to ‘Phonosurgery” to better represent the multidisciplinary efforts surrounding the surgical management of laryngeal and voice disorders. The IAP formally meets biennially, usually in association with another international voice meetings. In addition to our formal biennial meetings, the IAP also supports numerous other international programs by providing content and speakers. World Phonosurgery Congress 2019 is the 14th meeting of the International Association of Phonosurgery.

I hope that you will enjoy the Congress, the city of Buenos Aires and Argentina.

                                                                       Michael S. Benninger, MD
                                            President, International Association of Phonosurgery
