Presented in affiliation with the Society of Gynecologic Oncology (SGO)
This course provides an overview of oncologic principles that could benefit the benign pelvic surgeon. Participants will be given step-by-step strategies to address difficult surgical situations, including: what to do if you find an unsuspected cancer, how to identify normal anatomy with extensive adhesions or endometriosis, how to avoid a vascular injury and management of intra-operative bleeding, and how to avoid bowel and bladder injuries and what to do when they happen.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Direct the pre-operative management of the medically complicated surgical patient; 2) develop surgical skills to tackle challenging cases with more confidence and efficiency; and 3) apply newly acquired knowledge about evidence based perioperative care into practice.
