“Operations are performed today in a minimally invasive manner for the majority of patients. In these cases, only small incisions are required through which the endoscope, camera and special instruments are guided into the body cavities. The intervention is carried out under monitor view. In my scientific work I deal with the medical-technical, medical-ethical and healthcare-economic aspects that go hand in hand with this technology. I also develop new training methods that enable mistakes to be recorded and remedied in a targeted manner and learning curves to be overcome. Doctors from across the globe learn the hand movements for minimally invasive operations, using the OP simulator among other things, at the Kiel School of Gynaecological Endoscopy.”
