To have a large medical network – that is one of the key strengths of WOM. It is no coincidence that our headquarters is in Berlin. The German capital has become an important location for health care. The unique networking of science, business, and clinic offers the best prerequisites for exchanging new products and ideas and propelling innovations forward.
With the symposium "Trends in Minimally Invasive Medicine", we offer a successful forum for the exchange of knowledge and experiences. We conduct this symposium annually as the initiator and in close cooperation with Prof. Marc Kraft from the Department of Medical Engineering at the Technical University of Berlin, and Berlin Partner. Since 2015, topics such as 3D endoscopy systems, robotics in surgery, and the ease of use of surgical instruments have been explored. To this end, invited physicians, scientists, and development engineers present trends for the future, which are then discussed in plenary sessions.
The event, which is held every autumn, has already established itself as a major player in the health region of Berlin-Brandenburg, and the visitors were warmly invited to the symposium once again this year. The theme was “Training young surgeons” – what happens to the hopeful talents after their medical studies?
Using best-practice examples, the participants showed how teaching and applied medicine can be better combined in the future and how the training of the next generation at the highest level can be mastered in everyday clinical practice.
