Join us at 7th Annual Collaborative Symposium on Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

To meet the nationally growing interest and necessity to develop and train health care providers in minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, Cleveland Clinic Florida, Mayo Clinic, and Brigham and Women's Hospital, are combining faculty and expertise to offer a unique symposium to comprehensively address these needs. On Thursday morning, there is an optional cadaveric lab focusing on anatomy and dissection of the various pelvic structures emphasizing safe dissection, safe handling of energy sources, and tissue management. Thursday afternoon, there will be a suture laboratory focusing on laparoscopic suturing skills for the gynecologist. Didactic lectures will proceed Friday through Sunday focusing on Pelvic Anatomy and OR Basics, Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain, as well a Semi-Live Video Wrap-up session. There will be ample time during the symposium to personally interact with nationally known faculty from the three institutions to facilitate an improved knowledge base with development and honing of skills necessary to advance the performance of minimally invasive gynecologic surgery and insuring optimal outcomes for our patients.

By Attending, You Will Be Able To:

  • Apply state of the art practice for vaginal, robotic, and laparoscopic hysterectomy, including tissue extraction techniques to current practice. Identify when mini-laparotomy is the appropriate treatment choice and when conventional open surgery is most appropriate
  • Asses a variety of minimally invasive treatment options for uterine fibroids including manual and conventional morcellation techniques
  • Master the surgical management of endometriosis, including excision of advanced endometriosis
  • Apply general gynecological principles to unexpected gynecologic malignancy and how to triage pre operatively and intraoperatively
  • Identify the most common complications of laparoscopic, robotic, and hysteroscopic procedures and develop strategies to avoid them

Who Should Attend?

This symposium is directed to a national and international audience of practitioners and health care professionals, including obstetricians, and gynecologists, who wish to expand their clinical practice to include more minimally invasive surgical techniques.
