Practical surgical workshop
Minimally invasive thyroid surgery is becoming more and more popular. However, even for dedicated thyroid surgeons or experienced laparoscopic surgeons, proper training is necessary to learn this new method.
We are very happy to present the first Viennese cadaver course on transoral endocscopic thyroidectomy vestibular approach (TOETVA). This one-day course will give you an advanced training in this promising “scarless procedure”. After two hours of lectures, the participants will operate under supervision of European experts in this field using the latest surgical instruments.
