With the workshops of the CM3 program, joimax® offers a broad range of courses. Participants will develop deep endoscopic knowledge by means of expert lectures on anatomy, indications and contraindications, surgical techniques and instrumentation, combined with intense practical training on dedicated simulators and anatomical specimens. Special experiences, pitfalls, limitations and the individual management of complications along with anesthetic strategies and postoperative care are also discussed. Participating in our workshops will allow to officially reach level of experience 1 to 4.
For Endoscopic Spinal Surgery Level 1-2 workshops will provide the participants with the widest possible basis. Especially for beginners, the unique transforaminal access to the spinal canal and the spatial orientation of the view through the endoscope can be challenging. Level 3-4 workshops are designed to deepen existing knowledge and expand further surgical techniques, e. g. cervical treatment options, as well as endoscopic fusion techniques, and are in particular suitable for the already experienced surgeons.
Pain Therapy workshops address facet and sacroiliac joint treatment, peripheral nerve treatment and interventional nucleus therapy.
Please understand that course participants must meet preliminary criteria!
