Yesterday, Dr. H.C. Mult. Sybill Storz (Chair of the Supervisory Board, KARL STORZ) visited IRCAD 3, accompanied by Mr. Eric Dourver (Director Key Opinion Leader Management, Global Strategic Marketing, KARL STORZ) and Professor Jacques Marescaux.
KARL STORZ was IRCAD’s very first contact when the Institute was looking for a corporate partnership. Unfortunately at that time the official partnership letter never reached Dr. H.C. Mult. Sybill Storz. Eight years after the creation of IRCAD, Professor Jacques Marescaux had the honor of welcoming her for the first time to conduct an in-depth tour of the Institute. She said: “I will be patient, but I really want to be a partner of IRCAD”. This gave birth to this unique partnership, which has been ongoing for almost 20 years now.
It is also thanks to the vision and trust of Dr. H.C. Mult. Sybill Storz that WebSurg was created. Indeed, when Professor Jacques Marescaux first presented the project to her, she immediately gave it her full support.
