Certificate Course in Operative Techniques in Gynaecological Endoscopy
Endoscopic surgery has become an integral part of a surgeon’s practice. Procedures like Laparoscopic Myomectomy, Laparoscopic Hysterectomy and Hysteroscopy are now a patient demand as also a surgeon preference. Patients want to recover faster and go back to work quickly. Every surgeon practicing today needs to understand the principles and fundamentals of endoscopic surgery in Gynaecology and avoid compromises and complications. This three day course on operative techniques in gynaecological endoscopy encompasses an “all-in-one” approach to fulfill the dreams of any gynaecological surgeon to practice safe laparoscopic and hysteroscopic surgical procedures. There are some unique challenges of laparoscopic surgery, like visuo-spatial orientation, basic motor skills and a steep learning curve. The purpose of this program is to reduce this concern, by providing comprehensive training that includes lectures, instructional videos, lab exercises and animal tissue lab training that will help to improve the confidence and competence of the surgeon.
