Over the past decades, gynecologist have observed a rapid development in minimally invasive methods of treatment for various gynecological diseases. The diseases have changed in their form, expression, effected population, prevalence and their effect on surrounding tissues prompting the need for individual patient treatment plans. The concepts of wise radicalism in surgery joins together with effective minimalism to emphasizing goal-targeted and site-specific tissue-based approaches.

This course will teach how to strategically think about gynecologic conditions, recognize expectations from a disease, both short and long term and examine effective and safe treatment using minimally invasive surgery. This session pushes the envelope by continuously learning about gynecologic conditions through examining the nuances of techniques used to deliver treatment more effectively, avoiding unnecessary morbidity, enhancing functionality and managing complications. The faculty will use evidence-based lectures, video presentations, and experience from challenging surgeries to teach the participants efficacious and safe techniques in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery.
