Felix is a surgery resident and clinician scientist since 2017 at the department of visceral, thoracic and vascular surgery at the university hospital Carl Gustav Carus in Dresden. Since then, he has taken over the management of the training course for minimally invasive surgery together with PD Florian Oehme, MD, and has significantly strengthened the corresponding teaching and research activities. He is a research member at CeTI since 2019. In 2022, he was appointed co-leader of the Education and Training Taskforce of the CTAC Section (Computer and Telematic-assistierte Chirurgie) of the German Society of Surgery. His research focus and the subject of most of his publications is minimally invasive surgery and surgical education.


The “Introduction and Training of Minimally Invasive Surgery” Workshop aims to provideknowledge and practical skills in the field of minimally invasive surgical techniques. Minimally invasive surgery has revolutionized the way surgical procedures are performed, offering patients numerous benefits such as reduced postoperative pain, shorter hospital stays, and faster recovery times.

This workshop will cover fundamental concepts, with participants engaging in hands-on training sessions using simulators and surgical equipment. Additionally, a visit to the operation rooms and insight into real surgical procedures is possible.
