The Microsurgery Training and Research Laboratory was established in 1980 by Harold M. Dick, MD, Frank E. Stinchfield Professor of Orthopaedic Surgery, with the goal of making microsurgery an integral part of a surgeon's training in various fields and specialties. Under the supervision of Melvin P. Rosenwasser, MD, Director of Hand and Microvascular Service and Robert E. Carroll Professor of Hand Surgery, and Robert J. Strauch, MD, Professor of Clinical Orthopaedic Surgery and with the teaching expertise of the Laboratory’s Associate Director Yelena Akelina, DVM, MS, the Microsurgery Laboratory has become an internationally known state-of-the-art teaching facility in microsurgery.
Originally offered only to orthopaedic residents, the microsurgical training has been expanded to include other surgical specialties, and now offers courses that include
1) Introduction to Microsurgery; 2) Basic Microsurgery; 3) Advanced Microsurgery; and 4) Training in Rodent Microsurgery. Its courses attract surgical residents from all over United States and abroad.
