The first Uniportal VATS training course in 2019 was held on January 14 - 25th, 2019 in in the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital in Shanghai, China.
During this edition we celebrated the coming Chinese New Year with all the participants and team members from the hospital! It was a great event and a lot of energy for us to keep organizing events like this!
We are happy about the continuous cooperation with the Shanghai Pulmonary Hospital and support the Uniportal VATS Training. This year, we have planned seven training courses, each time giving the participants two weeks to learn and observe the best Uniportal VATS surgeons on the planet at one of the busiest Pulmonary Hospitals in the world!
The training programme is being led by Dr. Diego Gonzalez Rivas, Thoracic surgeon and creator of the uniportal VATS surgery procedure.
About the Uniportal VATS Training
The objective of the Uniportal VATS Training 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 usually are able to see up to 50-60 VATS surgeries every day in the OR (14 operation rooms). Dr Diego Gonzalez Rivas performes 4-5 uniportal VATS major resections per day during this course.
The dates for the courses in 2019 are already confirmed and are published on our website.
