Cleveland Clinic Microsurgery

Our microsurgery training courses are appropriate for any surgeon but microsurgery is commonly utilized in the following specialties: plastic surgery, general surgery, vascular surgery, neurosurgery, urology, gynecology, ENT, orthopedic and hand surgery, veterinary medicine, and transplantation immunology. The courses are directed to trainees and researchers, who seek practical microsurgery training at either a basic or advanced level. Specialty oriented courses are also available.

Microsurgery courses are held on a weekly basis throughout the year. The five day course runs from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday at the discretion of the Department of Plastic Surgery. The microsurgery laboratory accommodates a maximum of two trainees at a time. The courses use video materials and direct one-on-one teaching. All surgical procedures are performed on experimental rats. All instruments, suture material, and microscopes used are of the highest standards available. Each trainee will have access to a Zeiss or Leica surgical microscope and one-on-one instruction.
