Masterclass Esophageal Surgery

24th - 25th October 2019, 8:30am - 4:30pm



Over the past years advanced surgical techniques for minimally-invasive esophageal surgery developed. New surgical strategies and technological innovations have driven the evolution of esophageal surgery. In Mainz the fully minimally-invasive esophageal surgery is the standard procedure beside robotic procedures. In this masterclass workshop we would like to show essential technical steps in minimally-invasive esophageal surgery. We are looking forward to meeting you at our Masterclass Course Esophageal Surgery 2019 at our University.
