DMEK Wetlab Courses in the US

Since 2000, NIIOS has been organizing hands-on wetlab courses to train corneal surgeons in advanced lamellar keratoplasty techniques, like DLEK, DSEK, DMEK, DALK and Bowman layer transplantation. Given the continued interest in NIIOS courses for over 15 years, wetlab courses with the exact same set-up as in Holland, which have been proven effective, are now being offered in the USA through a collaboration with American corneal surgeons in Birmingham, Alabama. Each wetlab course consists of two-day program with live DMEK surgeries on the first day and a hands-on DMEK wetlab on the second day.
