This two-day seminar and hands-on workshop is designed to educate attendees in the art and science of laparoscopic suturing and knot-tying, as well as provide step by step techniques for performing video-assisted laparoscopic and robotic-assisted hysterectomy. The curriculum of this course is a continuum of didactics followed by hands-on training sessions in a repetitive and increased fashion, reaffirming and maximizing technical skill development. The hands-on session will include instruction and performance of extracorporeal knots, intracorporeal knots, slip knots, and the use of barbed sutures.
Lectures will be evidence-based and will include extensive surgical videos of video-assisted laparoscopic and robotic assisted hysterectomy and myomectomy, supracervical hysterectomy, and retroperitoneal dissection from expert faculty. The course will also include interactive live surgeries of mini video laparoscopy and robotic-assisted hysterectomy which will reinforce the knowledge and skills acquired from the earlier didactic sessions. Additional topics will include laparoscopic, robotic and hysteroscopic myomectomy, endometrial ablation, treatment of endometriosis, pelvic reconstruction, normal and abnormal anatomy and complications.
