My special interest is the surgery of brain tumors and disc herniations and the
reduction of operative trauma in their treatment.
In this objective, I have developed an endoscopic tehchnique, and its necessary material, for the surgery of lumbar disc prolapses.
Since 1993, I have operated on over 5000 patients with a rate of cure superior to
90% and a post-operatory period of convalescence greatly inferior to the normal.
By 1998, the success of this treatment aroused a certain interest in the medical
community and the Storz Company undertook the production and the
comercialization of the material as well as the publication and spreading of the technique. As a result, I have been invited to demonstrate this procedure in many countries including the United States, China, Egypt and Korea.
