Successful laparoscopic surgery relies on team effort requiring not only surgeons but also theatre personnel who are skilled in the setting-up and maintenance of modern technological instruments. Hence the centre will also provide training courses for theatre nurses. Besides providing the basic training for laparoscopic surgery, courses for specific advanced surgical procedures will be organised by the centre.
