Comment: Designed for gynecologists and gynecologic surgeons, this course provides an in-depth review of the latest laparoscopic, robotic and hysteroscopic techniques in gynecologic surgery. It will bridge the gap between journals, textbooks and surgical atlas, and the operating room by providing practical and technical information not otherwise available. An optional Hands-On Laparoscopic and Robotic Workshop on the afternoons of Thursday and Friday, October 16 - 17, will provide instruction on basic to advanced laparoscopic suturing techniques with clinical applications through didactic lectures and hands-on work stations. Laparoscopic skills will include needle delivery, suturing, intracorporeal and extracorporeal knot-tying, morcellation and use of staples, suture clips and various vessel-sealing devices. A robotic surgical system will be introduced to participants. Those registered for the workshop will have an opportunity to practice independently on the afternoon of Saturday, October 18. Enrollment in the workshop is limited: early registration is encouraged.
