Training and Education



Dr. Lamelas conducts monthly peer-to-peer and team training programs on advanced valve repair and replacement techniques. These industry-sponsored programs include procedure observations, didactic presentations and the opportunity to interact with Dr. Lamelas and his cardiovascular team. In addition, attendees are trained on the safe and effective use of Miami Instruments products.

Clinicians need to adapt as products and techniques evolve. The Medtronic Academia Medical Education Program is designed to help individuals at all experience levels learn more about emerging technologies and innovative solutions to clinical challenges. By creating on-line and in-person curriculum taught by pre-eminent faculty in the field, we are dedicated to helping you focus on broadening your expertise and improving patient care.

After many years of experience in conducting procedural-based training symposiums, Dr Lamelas realized the need to create a dedicated platform in which his peers could efficiently communicate their respective experiences amongst one and other in order to further advance the field of minimally invasive cardiac valve surgery. In 2010, Dr Lamelas developed and launched the first minimally invasive valve surgery blog to fulfill the need of further educating and updating cardiac surgeons on the latest techniques and developments within this specialized field.
