KARL STORZ is committed to maintaining a close relationship with leading clinicians, clinics and scientific organisations around the world to ensure its technology exactly meets the needs of those working at the forefront of medicine. This is particularly evident in its extensive support of training and education in the field of endoscopic surgery, as shown by the company’s recent decision to equip the Wolfson Surgical Centre with its new IMAGE1 SPIES™ camera platform.
The Wolfson Surgical Skills Centre, based at the Royal College of Surgeons of England, is one of the UK's largest cadaveric procedural training facilities and is equipped to simulate the operating conditions of a modern hospital. In order to facilitate the highest levels of surgical skills training and education, the centre has to offer the most advanced equipment – IMAGE1 SPIES™ is KARL STORZ’s latest solution to optimise the surgeon’s view of challenging anatomical areas during complex surgeries, and will be invaluable in teaching all levels of laparoscopic surgery on site.
KARL STORZ has supported the Royal College of Surgeons of England for nearly 20 years, and in 2014 Dr. H. C. Mult. Sybill Storz, owner of the KARL STORZ company, was awarded the rare and prestigious honour of being admitted as a Patron to the RCS in recognition of her commitment to training, education and the advancement of surgery.
Steve Anderson, Head of Professional Education at KARL STORZ said:
KARL STORZ is proud to be working in partnership with the Royal College of Surgeons, in line with our mutual aspirations of continually developing medical practice and surgical skills training.
