                             portunity to renew the commitment to your own professional growth and the success of
                             your practice or institution. During the three day annual conference you will obtain es-
                             sential information that will help you respond to the ever-changing ob/gyn practice arena.

                             rewarding program for all attendees, featuring superb faculty from across the country.
                             My appreciation extends to Frank Chervenak, MD, FACOG and John T. Queenan, Jr.,

                             Whether you’re a first time visitor or a native, New York City is the most exciting and di-
                             verse city in the world. I hope that you spend some of your free time exploring, touring,
                             enjoying Broadway and Times Square, museums, shopping, or indulging in the culinary
                             delights of the city. We are excited to present this meeting and look forward to seeing

HANDS-ON WORKSHOP

HANDS-ON Laparoscopic Techniques in Advanced Gynecologic Surgery

                  Our ability to treat a wide variety of gynecologic pathology in
                  a minimally invasive fashion continues to increase. However
                  as the technology surrounding gynecologic surgery rapidly
                  evolves, staying up to date with the latest developments has
                  become more challenging than ever. This course is designed
                  to provide a limited number of participants a total hands-on
                  experience with the most current technology available to the
                  gynecologic surgeon.
This year’s course will incorporate a combination of animate and inanimate sta-
tions as well as computerized surgical simulators for the ultimate surgical ex-
perience. Practical tips and pearls will be provided in the areas of laparoscopic
hysterectomy, adnexal and retroperitoneal dissection, and pelvic reconstructive
surgery. Techniques such as laparoscopic suturing, hand-assisted and single-port
or single incision laparoscopy, tissue morcellation, and the proper use of robotics
and new electrosurgical instrumentation will be covered.
COURSE OBJECTIVES:
At the end of this course, the participant should be able to:
• Formulate safe and efficient approaches to advanced endoscopic procedures
   such as laparoscopic hysterectomy (both total and supracervical).
• Describe the differences among the various electrosurgical devices available
  and what procedures benefit best from their application.
• Practice laparoscopic suturing techniques including robotics and how to success-
  fully incorporate these skills into reproductive and urogynecologic procedures.
• Demonstrate the proper use of laparo-endoscopic single site (LESS) or single
  port access (SPA) surgery techniques.
• Acquire various tips and tricks for managing and minimizing the risks of
  complications in operative laparoscopy.
