About the Uniportal VATS Training

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.
