Know about CEMAST

The Center of Excellence for Minimal Access Surgery Training (CEMAST), was created by the vision, commitment and dedication of two individuals:
Dr. Mrs. Sybill Storz, Chairperson, Karl Storz GmbH and KG, Tuttlingen, whose purely altruistic desire and commitment was to create a Training Center in Mumbai, solely for education and academics of Indian Surgeons, not for any profit, free of all commercial interest or intent. She made CEMAST into the ultimate state of the art, one of its kind Training Center. Prof. Tehemton E. Udwadia, who has been active in the spread to Laparoscopy in the Indian Sub-continent since the 1970s. After seeing the inadequacy of holding countless “Workshops” for decades, where the participants registered, paid their fees, attended the “Workshop” and were lost into the sunset, he had the vision to create an autonomous Center, run by surgeons for surgeons, where every participant trained at the Center remains as Alumni for continuing training and mentoring in perpetuity. That CEMAST has trained till now over 5000 surgeons in all the surgical specialities where MAS is performed is a tribute to the dedication and commitment of Dr. Sybill Storz and Prof. Tehemton Udwadia towards hands-on training in Minimal Access Surgery.
