Basic Training Courses

Junior surgical residents participating in the course use the specialized endotrainers to practice repeatedly in order to develop and demonstrate a required level of basic laparoscopic skills. The goal is to learn the basic knotting and suturing techniques and to demonstrate the ability to perform it at a high skill level. Advanced simulated surgery exercises are recommended to residents at the end of the basic training program, which allow them to perform more difficult types of surgery, including incisional hernia procedures and basic and advanced suturing tasks.

Experience demonstrates that strictly defined training programs successfully assist the resident in acquiring laparoscopic skills to a significant degree not only in a subjective view, but to a degree that is quantitatively provable. The quality of a course is obtained by means of a preset number of repetitions or by a defined proficiency level.
