Learn how TRIZ-tools apply to healthcare. Understand how TRIZ-methodology enables the creation of short-term and long-term next generation ideas in the area of endoscopic surgery from concept, through prototyping, to TRIZ-forecasting, and building an extensive IP portfolio for Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES). NOTES is an experimental surgical technique whereby "scarless" abdominal operations can be performed with an endoscope passed through a natural opening, thus avoiding any external incisions or scars. Leading endoscopic surgeons seriously consider NOTES to be the next major paradigm shift in surgery, just as laparoscopy was the major paradigm shift during the 1980s and 1990s.
