I would like to wish you all a very happy new year.

2020 has been very challenging. However, the IRCAD team has been working hard, and this has resulted in the coming true of several projects:
  • an exclusive license signature of the IRCAD spin-off, Visible Patient, with Johnson & Johnson;
  • The realization of the IRCAD China project, in collaboration with the South Korean group SK, the construction of which will begin in Wuxi in February 2021;
  • The creation of a TV channel allowing the professional development of webinars, to compensate for some of our on-site courses;
  • The construction of a new building (IRCAD 3) totally dedicated to surgical robotics (using Medtronic and CMR Surgical robotic systems) with a 300-seat auditorium equipped with the latest technologies.
  • The extension of our hotel, with an extra 115 rooms in Les Haras Hotel located 50 meters away from the Institute.
We very much look forward to welcoming you to our brand-new enlarged IRCAD France Institute as soon as possible.
Kindest regards,
Prof. Jacques Marescaux,
Founder and President of IRCAD
WebSurg Editor-in-Chief
