This is a letter to explain what the René Remie microsurgery course has meant in my career. First of all, I am writting this letter because I feel I must be grateful to this awesome professor. I also should apologize for my english, it is not the best and I am not sure if I will be able to explain all the things I want to explain but I am going to try it.
I am a young Spanish orthopaedic surgeon. I would like to become a hand surgeon and as a hand surgeon you should be trained in microsurgical skills. I attended a five day microsurgery course last february and it has been a great and wonderful experience!! You are trained personally and under the close supervision of professor Remie.
First of all, I just can say that this is an absolutely recommendable experience for someone that looks for training in microsurgery. You find in professor Remie an incredible person that makes you feel like working at home, receiving theoretical classes and performing surgeries. He corrects you every moment, but allows you time to perform surgeries. I did epineural nerve anastomoses, end-to-end and end-to-side anastomoses of arteries and veins even performing some surgeries like portacaval shunt. He shows you how something that you thought you will not be able to do (because I thought at the beggining that I was not going to be able to perform such wonderful things in just five days) can be accomplished in a very easy way. Every day that passes by you are taken to the next step, being corrected in all the ways and, at the same time, he tells you tricks to be faster and do the surgeries in the most perfect way. You will get from him all the answers you need. In his lab you can also find numberless books and publications to learn microsurgical techniques and he shows you where you can find the things you need. At the end of the course he also gives advice on where you can find instruments and other materials to compose your own microsurgery tools set. It is just a very complete course and I just can say that it worth all the money you pay.
