Supported by the
Frieda Locher Hofmann Foundation

The laparoscopic training center was founded by the Frieda Locher Hofmann Foundation. Dentist Dr. Frieda Locher Hofmann died in 1988. In her will, she asked to use her heritage to support charitable institutions and help foundations of all kind, with some focus on medical research. The laparoscopic training center is the first self-run project in the history of the foundation. The project was initiated and made possible by Dr. med. Jan F. Kukleta.

Our gratitude goes to the Frieda Locher Hofmann foundation and its foundation board. Without their support it would have not been possible to sustain the laparoscopic training center and offer surgeons this highly valuable, state-of-the-art education program.
