The Frankfurt Microsurgery Teaching Course is a five-day course held at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe University Clinic, in Frankfurt am Main, Germany. The purpose of the course is “to lay the foundations of the principal skills that make up good microsurgical technique”. The course provides intensive hands-on instruction and the skills it teaches are applicable in several clinical fields of reconstructive surgery and experimental surgery in animals.
Dr. Barker has worked closely with the course Director/Instructor; Dr. Gustavo Perez-Abadia and its Clinical Co-Directors; Professors Johannes Frank, Michael Sauerbier and Ingo Marzi to transplant this course from Louisville, USA to Frankfurt, Germany and to build it into one of the preeminent Microsurgery teaching facilities worldwide.
