Dear colleagues,


The curriculum consists of dissection courses in Budapest/Hungry and clinical observer courses in Zurich/Switzerland.

NEW GENERATION means the new generation of trainees, having the opportunity to grow up with these techniques, as well as the new education concept, providing a stepwise, comprehensive and practically oriented training in cranial Neurosurgery. All events are approved by the Neuroendoscopy Committee of the World Federation of Neurosurgical Societies (WFNS).

The course is dedicated to Neurosurgeons with interest in minimally invasive Neurosurgery. Basic experience in minimally invasive techniques is of help but not required. Didactically presented solutions will be simulated during extensive hands-on dissections and observed during transmitted livesurgeries from distinct international experts. This and many practical hints will improve your skills, shorten your learning curve and avoid unnecessary complications in performing minimally invasive Neurosurgery.
This event is offered in two complementary parts, which can be booked separately as well as in combination.

Part I is a low-cost theoretical event, hosted in Hungary`s legendary capital Budapest. International experts will present lectures on endoscopic and minimally invasive techniques in brain-, skull base and vascular neurosurgery as well as endoscopic ventricular and transnasal surgery.

Part II is hosted in the charming city Debrecen within the Hungarian “Puszta”. Here, a restricted number of participants will experience extensive hands-on dissections on fresh human specimens and watch life-surgeries with detailed case discussions. Working on fresh human specimens is a world-wide unique opportunity and an unforgettable experience, particularly offered for experienced users.

Having past this course you will be able to discuss latest technical and clinical advances in minimally invasive neurosurgery and use these techniques for a variety of indications in cranial and transnasal neurosurgery. We are sure, that this will be a very exciting training course for you.

We are looking forward to welcoming you in Budapest.


The two course directors, Professor Nikolai Hopf and Professor Robert Reisch have been pupils of Professor Axel Perneczky, pioneer of endoscopic and minimal invasive neurosurgery, and have been using endoscopic techniques since their very beginning of neurosurgical training. They have conducted 60 international courses only within the last fourteen years, teaching more than 800 international participants. They understand very well that integration of minimally invasive concepts into the daily surgical routine is not simple and requires a strong and stable strategy. Therefore, in this course the ENDOMIN team will teach you how to:

  • improve the daily routine.
  • shorten your learning curve.
  • avoid complications.
  • enhance your surgical and anatomical skills during extensive hands-on dissection on fresh human cadaver
  • apply minimally invasive neurosurgery during live surgeries transmitted from the University Hospital in Debrecen


  • didactic experience with more than 800 international trainees
  • distinct international expert faculty

Part I

  • broad spectrum of didactic and practically oriented lectures
  • comprehensive anatomical lectures using 3D-HD technology

Part II

  • extensive hands-on training (> 10h) on fresh human cadavers
  • live-surgery transmitted from the University Hospital in Debrecen
