Certificate Course in Comprehensive Laparoscopic Surgery – Cholecystectomy and Appendicectomy
Laparoscopic surgery has become integral part of surgeon’s practice. Procedures like diagnostic laparoscopy, biopsy, cholecystectomy and appendicectomy are now a patient demand as also surgeon preference. This is true even in the remotest part of our world. Patients want to recover faster and back to work quickly. Every surgeon practicing today needs to understand the principles and fundamentals of laparoscopic surgery and avoid compromises and complications. This three-day comprehensive course encompasses “all-in-one with certification” to fulfill the dreams of any surgeon wishing to practice safe laparoscopic surgery.
Knot tying and suturing at laparoscopic surgery has been the “Achilles heel” of novices and sometimes even of an “advanced” laparoscopic surgeon. The course promises extensive training at this aspect with dedicated hours in the simulation as well as wet laboratories to perfect skills including suturing.
