Fertility Enhancing Endoscopic Surgery
Course Background / Outline
Optimal management of Female Infertility needs a proper co-ordination between the endoscopic surgeon and ART specialist. Although there are a lot of specialists who perform both ART and Endoscopic Surgery, with the era of Super-specialization, the present generation of doctors may only perform one of the two. We need to identify and standardize the indications, techniques , limitations and contra-indications for the use of Endoscopic surgery to improve the success of ART.
The course will help develop basic skills in hysteroscopy and laparoscopy as would be needed to perform fertility enhancing surgeries. The two day course will include didactic lectures on instrumentation, OT set-up, Electrosurgery and Basic skills in hysteroscopy and laparoscopy. Hands on training will include Dry Lab for developing Eye-Hand Coordination for hysteroscopy and laparoscopy and mastering suturing. Videos of the different surgeries performed for Fertility Enhancement would be shown by the Expert Faculty.
A combined expert faculty including ART specialists and Endoscopic Surgeons would conduct the program.
