Dr. Alexandru C. It was a fantastic opportunity and great pleasure to have a wonderful training with one of the pioneers on the field, Prof Van den Praet and his team. I got lots of achievements but most important I have now dr Praet around me, for teaching, doing surgery and enjoying things together. Overall a great experience and I will recommend to other surgeons to apply for this training course.
