Intensive Minimal Access Paediatric Surgery Training Course

Intensive Minimal Access Paediatric Surgery Training Course

Minimal Access Surgery has become integral part of Paediatric surgery. Procedures like diagnostic laparoscopy, orchiopexy, appendicectomy, repair of inguinal hernia, biopsy (peritoneal, lymph node and gonadal), cholecystectomy, nephrectomy and thoracoscopy for empyema have become part of the common in minimal access Paediatric Surgery. The parents (of children with surgical diseases) have started demanding minimal access surgery for their children. This is applicable even in the smaller towns of India. Parents want their child to recover quickly, with early discharge from the hospital and to resume education and other activities at the earliest. Early discharge allows even parents to resume their work faster. It is important for Paediatric Surgeons to get hands-on training in minimal access Paediatric Surgery, to understand the principles and fundamentals of these techniques, which will decrease the duration of their learning curve and incidence of complications. This three-day basic course encompasses “all-in-one with certification” to fulfill the dreams of any Paediatric Surgeon wishing to practice safe minimal access Paediatric Surgery. Knot-tying and suturing in laparoscopic Surgery has been the “Achilles heel” of novices and sometimes even of an experienced laparoscopic surgeon. The course will encompass extensive hands-on training, introduction to basic laparoscopic suturing and the animal tissue laboratory which gives the opportunity to have extensive hands-on experience, to boost the confidence of the delegates.
