What our participants say:
“Exactly one year ago, I attended a joimax basic course in Frankfurt. The course was great, the staff very supportive, and I decided to adopt endoscopic surgery. During the year, I attended another course in Düsseldorf, visited the great Menno Iprenburg and three other excellent surgeons. Last week, a brilliant surgeon vastly experienced in endoscopy came to Amman and together we did EIGHT fantastic cases. Thank you Dr Guntram Krzok. I learned so much from you, and will always be grateful. I am delighted to let you know that I started my cases of endoscopic surgery in Amman and already did a decompression and a disc case in my first week! I am absolutely confident that my team and I in Jordan will be offering this great technology to a huge number of patients from the whole of the middle east. This success will never have taken place without the support of joimax.”
