Course Description and Statement of Need
The Roadmap for the Gynecologic Surgeon: A Hands-On Course Focused on Minimally Invasive Pelvic Surgery will provide an in-depth review of the latest information and techniques in gynecologic laparoscopic surgery. It is designed for clinicians who desire to advance their laparoscopic skills, improve dexterity with instrumentation and suturing, and apply these skills to perform more advanced gynecologic laparoscopic surgeries in their practices.

This comprehensive conference offers hands on experience with energy sources in addition to laparoscopic instrumentation and suturing techniques. Participants will learn and practice these basic and advanced laparoscopic skills and techniques using laparoscopic trainers, computer simulators and cadavers. The course will also feature video streaming of live surgical procedures with moderated discussion.

The hands-on labs will be instructed and moderated by experienced faculty currently using these devices and techniques in their practices. Furthermore, a variety of surgical videos and other information integral to this unique conference will be made available to participants.

Target AudienceThis educational activity is intended for OB/Gyn physicians, gynecologic surgeons, and OB/Gyn residents and fellows.

Educational Objectives
Practice the skills and techniques necessary to perform basic and more advanced gynecologic laparoscopic surgery.

Apply the principles of robotic surgery and its implications in candidate selection, laparoscopic procedures, and problem-solving specific to complex devices.

Compare and contrast the perceptual differences between traditional laparotomic surgery and minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery as it relates to pelvic anatomy.

Perform laparoscopic suturing and knot tying, two skills that when used in a proficient manner, can allow surgeons to perform most laparoscopic procedures and appropriately manage specific complications when they occur.

Identify methods to avoid laparoscopic complications and manage them should they occur.

Recall and be able to utilize the steps involved in performing a laparoscopic hysterectomy/myomectomy.

• Recognize the principles of electrosurgery and apply appropriate techniques in laparoscopic surgery.

Accreditation Statement
