CONMED Low Impact™ Laparoscopy

Broadcast on November 17, 2016, live from AAGL's 45th Global Congress on Minimally Invasive Gynecology we heard from the pioneers of Low ImpactTM Laparoscopy and their strategies to improve patient satisfaction. We  learned how and why patients are taking less postoperative narcotics and recovering faster. A panel of experts discussed their experience in operating at ultra-low pressures through ultra-small openings. Attendees gained technical insights on this combined strategy to reduce pain and narcotic use, moving more patients to same day surgery.
