Description

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.

Learning Objectives

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.
