joimax® and the ATOS Private Clinic Munich present their largest international endoscopy workshop so far.

Karlsruhe, 16th September 2009
: On 14th and 15th September a joimax® workshop on the endoscopic removal of disc herniations using the TESSYS® method took place in the ATOS Private Clinic Munich for the third time. A highlight of this international workshop was the transmission of three live operations, which the 25 participating orthopaedic and neurosurgeons were able to follow in the conference room in the neighbouring Sheraton Arabellapark Hotel.
Dr. med. Michael Schubert operated on three patients from Egypt, Denmark and Germany, describing the individual steps of the procedure and answering questions from the auditorium during the operations. Several workshop participants were also able to follow the operations directly from the operating theatre. The live operations followed a day of intensive training on cadavers in the Ludwig-Maximilian University, Munich. The participants travelled from far and wide for the workshop, with surgeons from Germany, Austria, Spain, Turkey and several Asian countries taking part. Faculty member and course instructor Dr. Menno Iprenburg, who heads his own clinic in Veenhuizen, the Netherlands, claimed: “In my opinion this was the best workshop so far!”
