You are here:

Expert public only

Planung, Navigation und operative Duchführung

The surgery course provides the opportunity to learn standardized procedures in a realistic setting and gives participants the chance to test and train recently developed technologies.

Maximum training efficiency

You will experience:

  • training in the operating rooms of the Department of Neurosurgery, Charité
  • procedures with real brain tissue in a realistic setting
  • support by an experienced scrub nurse
  • continuous feedback from experienced consultants

Our goal is to enable participants to exploit technological standard procedures to their full potential (navigation, fluorescence, CUSA etc.) and turn them into experts in the procedures’ application.
There will be time to test the following, new technologies and learn how to effectively use them:

  • Augmented reality (Brainlab/Zeiss)
  • Exoscopic surgery (Olympus/Zeiss)
  • Yellow 560 (Zeiss)
  • CUSA subpial dissection (Integra)

An innovative training model:
The course will take place in a fully equipped operating room. The competencies that are taught in this training unit include neurosurgical basics like indicating
and planning surgery as well as practising elementary skills such as positioning, craniotomy planning and microsurgical skills. Furthermore, participants will become acquainted with the usage of navigation,
augmented reality, exoscopic surgery, fluorescence and subpial dissection using the CUSA among others. The usage of novel craniocerebral dummies increases the training effect and enables flexible acquisition and training of various skills.

Competencies taught

  • Positioning and craniotomy planning
  • Setting up and usage of intraoperative neuronavigation
  • Subpial dissection
  • Application of Yellow 560 fluorescence
  • Exoscopic and semi-robotic surgery
