Oct 9, 2018 1:30pm ‐ Oct 9, 2018 5:00pm


Description

This “video-heavy”, practical, clinical course is designed to provide detailed surgical tips used regularly by three busy urogynecologists who perform hundreds of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexies per year. The course will touch briefly on patient selection and optimal surgical steps. It will primarily focus on avoiding or getting out of trouble during difficult cases as well as ways to recognize and deal with post-op adverse events. Designed for even the most experienced attendees, participants will come away with specific and useful ideas that may lead to greater efficiency, success, autonomy and/or safety.

Learning Objectives:

  • At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to describe optimal steps of laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy with and without the robot
  • At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to describe patient positioning and room set-up techniques designed to avoid complications
  • At the conclusion of this workshop, participants will be able to describe ways to prevent and / or manage intraoperative and postoperative surgical complications of this operation.
