During this congress day, 7 procedures were performed by Professor Wattiez’s team in 3 operating rooms of Strasbourg’s University Hospitals. The best international experts gathered on this occasion. All procedures were broadcasted live from the IRCAD for the European Congress in Paris.

A hundred surgeons of 26 different nationalities took part in the IRCAD course and 1200 participants could watch the High Definition surgical videos broadcasted from the IRCAD.

Endometriosis is a rare condition which affects about 10% of women. Few teams can establish its diagnosis and properly perform the surgical technique to treat and cure patients.

Once again, the IRCAD’s expertise was appraised by the surgical community in the field of minimally invasive surgical education.
