The Cambridge Anastomosis Workshop is a practical hands-on intensive 4-day workshop covering a wide range of anastomoses inc. small & large bowel, oesophagus, stomach, vascular & urology.
These are the fundamental techniques any surgeon must know. A leaking anastomosis usually kills the patient yet safe anastomoses can be reliably made. In the workshop, you will have each technique explained, then see it on live demonstration.
You will carry out the procedure under close supervision. You can expect to carry out over 20 anastomoses during the course and will have opportunities to examine them from the inside. Teaching is in a large lab in the Pathology Department with excellent facilities.
Faculty members are surgeons with years of experience teaching practical surgical techniques.
