"Although laparoscopic surgery is being practiced worldwide for the last 17 years, yet the opportunities for a structured training to teach and train laparoscopic skills lack across continents...
I had nurtured a dream for a long time to establish a centre of excellence for Laparoscopic Training in the Department of Surgical Disciplines, All India Institute of Medical Sciences (AIIMS), New Delhi, India. This turned into reality when I met Prof. Gerhard Buess during my visit to Germany in July 2006. Prof. Gerhard Buess expressed his concern about lack of proper structured hands - on skill training in the field of minimal access surgery and the idea of establishing a training centre at AIIMS, New Delhi evolved. Dr. V.K. Bansal, Professor in Surgery, had an opportunity to visit and work closely with Prof. Buess's Minimally Invasive Surgery Training Centre in the University Hospital of Germany thus maturing the whole process of establishing such a centre in New Delhi.
