The unit

The architecture of the MTC, which is located in the Hôpital Kirchberg, means that it can be used both as a conference room (100 places) and as a practical training room.

12 workstations were created for the practical work. One workstation, assigned to the teacher, makes it possible to carry out an operation on an anatomical specimen, this then being copied by the participants.

The technical facilities allow for both the fitting of prosthetics, the dissection of flaps, in addition to knee, wrist, elbow, or shoulder endoscopy.

A total of 36 surgeons can be taught at each session. All of these operations are recorded and can be remotely broadcast. The interconnection with the 8 operating theatres allows for the live broadcasting of the operations as an introduction to the technical demonstrations.
