Paediatric Minimally Invasive Surgery and Urology Course

It was for us a real pleasure to host the second edition of Paediatric Minimally Invasive Surgery and Urology Course organized by Pr A. Saxena, Dr E. Brönniman and Dr O. Sanchez and with the participation of Mr H. Chandran, Mr P. Mishra, Pr P. Zimmerman and Dr L. Mazzone in our facilities in Geneva.

The minimally invasive approach is becoming the standard for a growing number of procedures in all fields of paediatric surgery. This approach requires the acquisition of a specific theory and an exposition to standardized operations by being guided by experts in the field.

This two-day course in the SFITS facilities allowed surgeons of all levels to benefit from a formal theoretical teaching, but also and most importantly to have the opportunity to exercise on a wide range of carefully selected models, while exchanging and discussing operative techniques with internationally recognized experts.
