Description

This is a two-day theory and one day practical course that covers the essential aspects of intermediate laparoscopic and open surgery for benign gynaecological disease.The two day theory course has been structured with sessions to allow interaction from delegates and incorporate expert discussion of relevant cases. The practical sessions on the third day will provide training on essential skills required for performing laparoscopic hysterectomy including use of equipment and stack management as well as hands on laboratory training under supervision of expert faculty for components of the procedure including pelvic dissection, uterine manipulation, colpotomy and vault closure.This meeting is recognised for the ‘Benign Abdominal Surgery: open and laparoscopic’ and Advanced Laparoscopic Surgery for the excision of benign disease’ Advanced Training Skills Modules (ATSM).
