Neurosurgical procedures still are particularly challenging for both, patients and surgeons. Beside the risks generated by the lesion itself, morbidity caused by the surgical approach is a relevant part of this challenge.

Over the last two decades minimal invasive Neurosurgery (MIN) came up with the aim to achieve at least comparable results as standard procedures but confronts the patient with significant lower risks. This may be achieved for example by utilizing so-called keyhole approaches.

In addition, endoscopes were found to enable brilliant visualization of hidden areas of the brain also around corners or fragile neurovascular structures.

Thus, optimal results by means of this strategy require experience with keyhole approaches and endoscopic Neurosurgery. Therefore, the goal of ENDOM College is to teach this knowledge worldwide in a comprehensive way.
