This course has been approved for ABOG Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV
This course is an advanced laparoscopic suturing dry lab and is designed for participants interested in expanding their existing suturing skills. Course faculty will provide tips and techniques that will help with successful, consistent, and reproducible results, that can be applied to the clinical care setting. Topics discussed will include: myomectomy, bladder, bowel, ureteric, and vessel repair. Videos demonstrating various techniques will be used to highlight multiple approaches and clinical scenarios. The faculty will provide an interactive environment that meets the needs of the individual participants to maximize hands-on simulation. This course is designed to take gynecologists comfortable with basic suturing to the next level and learn techniques that would be helpful in difficult surgeries.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Apply different tips and techniques for efficient laparoscopic suturing and intracorporeal knot tying; 2) plan an approach, using techniques discussed, for laparoscopic myomectomy, bladder, bowel, ureteric, and vessel repair; and 3) perform efficient laparoscopic repairs on simulated organs in a dry lab setting.
