Emmanuel Mylanus is based at Radboud University Medical Center, Nijmegen, The Netherlands. After graduation from Medical College at the University of Nijmegen, he conducted research on implantable bone conduction hearing aids, which ultimately led to a PhD doctorate in 1994. He received training in otorhinolaryngology at the Queen Elisabeth Hospital in Birmingham, UK and at the Radboud University Medical Centre in Nijmegen. After qualifying in 1999, he became a staff member at the department of Otorhinolaryngology Head & Neck surgery at the Radboud UMC in Nijmegen. His interest in implantable hearing aids has led to clinical work, research projects, and presentations at international meetings on semi-implantable bone conduction devices, active middle ear implants and cochlear implants. He is in charge of the clinical pillar Ear & Hearing of the dept of Otorhinolaryngology Head & Neck Surgery at the Radboud UMC in which high quality care is provided for patients in need of implantable devices for hearing loss. Since 2015 he holds a chair as guest lecturer at the University of Ghent, Belgium.
