Module A focuses on blood vessel anastomoses, nerve repair, skin flap preparation, and other techniques.

Module A: Microsurgical Techniques

We train in small groups of 5-8 with larger groups available by arrangement. Attendees are provided with a Leica or Zeiss binocular operating microscope, a full set of microsurgery instruments, and all of the materials you will need. You will experience hands-on learning both in models and in living material. Each module ends with a customized learning experience of choice where attendees can polish their skills in an area outside of the established training plan.

Our courses require a degree as a lab technician, veterinarian, biologist, pharmacologist or any other medical science.

This module can be of interest to clinical surgeons who want to master the basics of microsurgery. We have a basic and an advanced course. It will typically involve;
  • blood vessel anastomoses (ETE, ETS, interposition grafts etc.)
  • nerve repairs
  • skin flap preparation
  • other techniques of particular interest to participants by agreement before or during the module
