About us

In 2010 Dr. Aleix Vidal and his team of professionals began a charitable teaching program to train specialists who want to further their understanding of the field of arthroscopy and minimally invasive surgery.

Dr. Vidal’s team has created a project to enhance training with the following objectives:

  • Train specialists in the area.
  • Create a digital tele-training platform (PDT) to continue direct contact for complementary help and ongoing training.
  • Perform minimally invasive interventions.
  • Treat patients who otherwise would not have access to this type of intervention.

El proyecto docente cuenta con el soporte de la Fundación QuirónSalud y el patrocinio de la Asociación Arán.
