Description

Hysterectomy is the most common gynecologic procedure, with almost half a million performed annually in the United States, alone. However, these procedures are performed not without risk for significant complications. A plethora of hysteroscopic techniques are available to address patient problems that commonly led to hysterectomy, including abnormal bleeding, fibroids, and pain. Indeed, in a value-based healthcare delivery model, proficiency with hysteroscopic surgery is regaining a critical role as a cornerstone in clinical gynecology. This session will offer the participant a comprehensive overview of current innovations in patient evaluation and selection, surgical tips and tricks, and perioperative management related to hysteroscopic interventions for common uterine pathology. Attendants will be exposed to easily adaptable evidence-based tools that can facilitate immediate and effective integration of advanced hysteroscopic procedures into their practice, regardless of current surgical skill and comfort level.

Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) acquire skills needed to include advanced hysteroscopic alternatives to hysterectomy into clinical practice.
