Percutaneous Approaches for Today's Minimally Invasive Gynecologic Surgery

Teleflex, in coordination with the AAGL and GlobalCastMD, brings world experts and educators together in person as well as virtually to contrast existing technologies for laparoscopy with more recent developments in percutaneous laparoscopic instruments.  We will look at gynecological procedures performed with percutaneous instruments in contrast with today’s traditional MIS procedures allowing the audience and a global virtual audience to participate in the discussion while discovering the benefits and drawbacks of various techniques. We have assembled a global panel of speakers specializing in various techniques used to accomplish similar tasks including traditional laparoscopists and percutaneous laparoscopy adopters.  Each of the panel will discuss the various advantages and disadvantages of each technique and how they apply to specific procedures in urogynecology, gynecology and reproductive gynecology. 

Description

Learn Alongside a Global Audience

We have assembled a global panel of speakers specializing in various techniques used to accomplish similar tasks including traditional laparoscopists and percutaneous laparoscopy adopters.  Each of the panel will discuss the various advantages and disadvantages of each technique and how they apply to specific procedures in urogynecology, gynecology and reproductive gynecology. 

As new concepts and cutting-edge techniques are developed in healthcare, it typically takes years for this information to eventually be disseminated and incorporated into standard practice.   Now, this information can reach doctors around the world in seconds. The key element to GCMD’s format is the emphasis on interaction. The audience does not just sit and listen but participates in the discussion. Furthermore, all of the recorded broadcasts are immediately available online for healthcare providers to review even after the live event.
