I have been conducting courses on four continents for 15 years. However, a course organized in this manner is unique in the world. The course consists of three parts. The first part is basic microsurgery training, the second part is basic brain anatomy training, and the third part is live surgical demonstration. In the third part, participants can simultaneously watch three-dimensional broadcasts of both the operating room and the microscope and three-dimensional endoscope images used in surgery.
