Le Centre International de Chirurgie Endoscopique (CICE)

Expert Professor Botchorishvili

The International Centre of endoscopic surgery (CICE) was created in 1990 by Professor Maurice Antoine Bryukha in order to reply “new” challenges in evolution of surgical instruments and techniques, as well as in the technique of new images.

New possibilities that are opened during introduction of endoscopic techniques into surgery, have promoted high demand for specialists in the field of surgery.

CICE is offering detailed lectures of leading experts in laparoscopic surgery and gynecology, and practical introduction into the advanced techniques, that are for young surgeons, postgraduates, and the most experienced surgeons. In the Centre they also train “surgical teams”, it means, there is a possibility to train anaesthetists and nurses who will be working in the operation theatre. A great attention is paid to working off all practical habits, that they have studied theoretically.

Annually more than 1,500 specialists of different specialities are educated in CICE; the structure of education and training includes the peculiarities of Health Care system at regional and International levels. The Centre is opened for working on probation for specialists of co-operating profiles, including simultaneous work with doctors, performing interventional methods of diagnostics.

Due to partnership with University clinics, CICE can invite foreign practicing doctors to work on probation for different periods of time: for short (up to one week) and long period ( up to two years).
