The fifth Uniportal VATS training course in 2017 was held on September 11th - 22nd, 2017 in the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital.
In 2017 we continue our cooperation with the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital and support the Uniportal VATS Training. This year, we planned six training courses over the whole year.
The training programme is being led by Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas, Thoracic surgeon and creator of the uniportal VATS surgery procedure.
The idea of the Uniportal VATS Training is to present surgeons from all around the world an opportunity to learn the newest surgery approaches in the Thoracoscopic Department of the biggest Pulmonary Hospital in China.
The objective of this training course is to offer ongoing Education to further develop Advanced Thoracic Surgeons in acquiring confidence in the uniportal VATS Technique. The agenda includes theoretical sessions and a large number of live cases to be observed every day. Participants are able to see among 40-50 VATS surgeries every day into the OR (12 operation rooms). Dr Diego Gonzalez Rivas performes 4-5 uniportal VATS major resections per day.
The dates for the courses in 2017 are already confirmed and are published on our website.
