The next workshop organized by Sanat Academy will take place in Obninsk, Russia (Sanatmetal factory) on June 27, 2019. Prof. Dr. Endre Varga will tutor more than 20 Russian traumatologists and the training will be followed by another one in Thailand.
It is important for us that traumatologists and surgeons can help their patients by achieving the best possible results using our world-class products. This was the foremost motivation behind establishing the Sanat Academy which has already created a training base for its 22 traumatologists with the participation of Pécs, Szeged, Debrecen University and doctors and heads of departments from the National Institute of Accident Surgery. It is planned that the orthopaedic and spinal surgery instructor-base will soon be established too.
Sanatmetal was among the first to respond to the government’s decision to declare the Hungarian health industry a strategic division and to increase Hungarian export and the use of Hungarian products in Hungary, including implants, which represent our main profile. A project has been developed to make Hungary, Eger, an international training centre for traumatology, orthopaedics and spine surgery. An important tool of this project is the Sanat Academy, which has recently debuted in Szeged. Our aim is to contribute to the innovative procedures of traumatology, orthopaedics, spinal and dental surgery and to the scientific knowledge of those working in these fields at national and international level, thus enhancing the high level of education in the field of relevant medical sciences. Sanatmetal Ltd. trains hundreds of foreign doctors and operating personnel each year in order to ensure the proper use of our products.
We believe that Hungary can play a defining role in our filed not only in our geographical proximity but also in the world’s health industry. We are striving to play a leading role among small and medium-sized enterprises in our profile and the internationally trained doctors who are already active participants of the Sanat Academy will surely provide the perfect backdrop to that.
