Who we are
GEO saves lives and prevents avoidable deafness from ear disease for those affected by poverty and lack of care so they can reach their full human potential.
Temporal Bone Lab Design
GEO from the ground up helps design, develop, and build temporal bone labs for teaching purposes in both academic and non academic settings.
Training in surgical skills
From the temporal bone lab where the anatomy of the middle ear is learned to the operating theater where technique is refined, GEO is helping to advance surgical skills.
The GEO advisory network helps build and structure the curriculum for academic training programs in both Otology and Otolaryngology.
Post Doctorate Fellowships
GEO helps support underserved communities lacking specialists by connecting experienced ENT and otology fellows in needed communities.
Many communities are underserved and when it comes to ear disease GEO has provided surgery pro bono for those who lack access and funds for care.
Our programs and medical donations reach more than 25 developing countries each year, saving lives and transforming people.
Ten years 19 courses in Latin America
