Today: Microsurgery Course on Vascular Anastomoses

Microsurgery Course on Vascular Anastomoses

May 17, 2016 — May 20, 2016

Pavia, Italy

More Information

Course Leader: Rosmarie Frick

A cycle of microsurgical practical courses, for neurosurgeons, vascular surgeons, plastic surgeons, maxillofacial surgeons and residents, that will be held in our labs under the direction of Rosmarie Frick, the worldwide known teacher of the legendary “Zurich Microsurgery Course”.

The number of participants will be expressly limited, in order to allow each trainee to have her own lab station equipped with microsurgical instruments and microscope.

During four full days of training, the participants will be able to familiarize themselves with the microinstruments and learn the key points of micro-dissection, micro-suturing and vascular anastomosis.

This course is being held: 16 – 19 February, 17-20 May, and 8 – 11 November 2016.

In 2016 Frau Frick’s Microsurgery course will be held in Pavia instead of in Monza.
