the training centre for excellence in minimal access surgery in Latin America
On 9th July 2011, IRCAD (Research Institute against Digestive Cancer) inaugurated its second international branch, IRCAD Brazil, new research and training center in minimally invasive surgery located in the state of Sao Paulo.
With a surface of more than 7.000 m², IRCAD Brazil is one of the largest training centres in minimally invasive surgery in America.
The objective of IRCAD Brazil (AMITS) is twofold. It is geared up:
to provide top quality training in minimally invasive surgery, and even non-invasive;
to promote research and development in the field of new surgical computer-guided and robotic assisted technologies.
