European School of Reconstructive Microsurgery
Microsurgery has become a standard part of all tissue transfer techniques and is an essential component in the most advanced reconstructive procedures, such as vascular anastomosis, lymphatic microsuture and neurorrhaphies.
The exponential growth in the use of microsurgical techniques, over the last ten years, especially in plastic surgery, clearly indicates that a skilled microsurgical team is indispensable in all major hospitals.
Microsurgery is a surgery performed under the magnification of a microscope. The blood vessels and nerves that supply small body parts are too small that the help of a microscope is necessary to place sutures in the walls of the blood vessels and nerves coverings.
Connection for blood vessels and nerve can then be made to establish or re-stablish blood flow and nerve transmition.
The Reconstructive Microsurgery European School is a state-of the art learning facility, designed and commissioned to meet the needs of the modern healthcare professional and provide excellence as a facility for advanced microsurgical training.
The aim of this school is teaching the skills required to perform microsurgery required in a variety specialities including plastic surgery.
More advanced training is available and is tailored to the special needs and interest.
This school focuses and training students to acquire a higher level of basic skills in a microsurgery by means of intense laboratory practice and will help the student in making a decision about their surgical speciality since microsurgery is a surgical skill that relates to many surgical fields.
Our school programmes provide hands-on experience, performing experimental microsurgical procedures under the direct supervision of the instructor. Students will also participate in the design and performance of scientific experiments. In addition, they will perform post-operative care of relevant animal models and participate in data analysis and interpretation. Students will be encouraged to submit it for a publication in a peer-reviewed journal.
