ASI: dedicated to shoulder surgery

The Alps Surgery Institute has a commitment to education and hosts 6 ASI International Shoulder Arthroscopy courses each year, and the Annecy Live Surgery International Advanced Shoulder Course every two years.

Such courses form the cornerstone of education at the Institute and have resulted in the sharing of techniques and innovation with leading surgeons from around the world. Surgeons from over 36 countries have attended courses at the ASI.

Courses at the Institute are interactive and make use of the latest technology to enable delegates to participate in live surgery.

The Institute has up-to-date video equipment with complete audiovisual acquisition technology.  There are 4 cameras and 4 monitors for each of the 5 operating rooms linked via micro waves and high speed broadband allowing us to broadcast to other locations, to great success. The high speed internet connection enables dialogue with delegates and surgeons for enhanced interactive surgery anywhere in the world.
