At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Articulate the critical anatomic structures, essential dissection steps and cuff closure techniques to perform LH safely; 2) describe the role of pre-operative ultrasound imaging in treatment, surgical planning and patient counseling; and 3) demonstrate laparoscopic and vaginal techniques to safely approach difficult pathology such as the large uterus and frozen pelvis with endometriosis.
