Surgical Trials Workshop Program

The Surgical Trials Workshop will bring together individuals interested in sleep surgery research, with the goal of advancing the science in the field. The previous Workshop at the 2014 ISSS meeting in Detroit led to the development of two multi-center studies, and updates on these efforts will be presented. In addition, the Workshop will be organized around discussions of 3 topics relevant to adult and pediatric sleep surgery. We hope you can join us!
