First workshop with live operations on the endoscopic removal of disc herniations held in the ATOS Private Clinic, Munich

Karlsruhe, 11th March 2009: On March 9th and 10th a joimax® workshop on the endoscopic removal of disc herniations using the TESSYS® method took place in the ATOS Private Clinic in Munich. For the first time, participants were able to view the operation live from the conference room in the neighbouring Sheraton Hotel as it was transmitted from the clinic. Dr. med. Michael Schubert carried out the operation, explaining the individual steps and answering questions from the auditorium throughout the operation.
Intensive training on cadavers preceded the live operation, allowing all participating doctors to get the most out of the transmitted procedures. Presentations by experienced surgeons complemented the workshop on minimally invasive endoscopic intervertebral disc surgery.
