Taner Yilmaz, MD, Professor and Chairman of Department of Otolaryngology-Head and Neck Surgery at Hacettepe University Faculty of Medicine in Ankara, Turkey. I graduated and completed residency in the same university and department. I am a laryngologist and phonosurgeon. I perform exclusively laryngeal and phonosurgical procedures in my practice; I don't do any other ENT operations. I am a member of European Laryngological Society, International Association of Phonosurgery and American Laryngological Association. I try to participate in every ELS, IAP and ALA meeting and present a paper there. My main interest topics are arytenoidectomy for bilateral vocal fold paralysis, transoral laryngeal microsurgery for early glottic cancer, surgery for voice feminization and transoral surgery for glottic and supraglottic stenosis. I published various new surgical procedures for the above-mentioned topics. I own two patents, a laryngoscope that elevates intubation tube anteriorly during posterior laryngeal procedures and a epiglottis holding forceps used to hold a floppy epiglottis that is folding inside the larynx during insertion of a surgical laryngoscope.
