Partnership with IRCAD
Training is a prerequisite for every surgeon to use the progress achieved in endoscopy for the well-being of patients. For more than 20 years now, IRCAD has been actively taking part in the evolution and development of minimally invasive surgical techniques.
Since 2004, KARL STORZ appreciates the intensive cooperation we have with IRCAD Strasbourg. At IRCAD the medical curriculum remains in the hands of the medical partners and this is combined with the technical expertise of KARL STORZ as a medical technology partner. This guarantees that both partners can focus on core skills. As an industry partner we are convinced by this training concept and support it whenever possible.
