General, Colorectal, and Thoracic? surgeons from Central Europe, the Middle East, and Africa attended courses run over two days (four hours each day) delivered by UK experts in minimal access surgery.
Mark Coleman (Lapco Trainer) said: “The programme was a resounding success. Far beyond what we expected.
