Course Description

This hands-on simulation course is designed to provide a systematic and comprehensive approach to multiple modalities of minimally invasive myomectomy. This course is intended for both beginning and advanced minimally invasive gynecologic surgeons, including generalists and specialists. Through simulation models, and under the guidance of expert faculty, participants will be provided the opportunity to practice, in a step-by-step surgical approach, hysteroscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic myomectomy, as well as contained tissue extraction techniques. Within each surgical modality, an emphasis will be placed on anatomic planes, surgical techniques, and the utilization of different energy sources and suture types. These simulated approaches will help the surgeons refine their skills and formulate a well-strategized minimally invasive surgical plan for their patients suffering from uterine myomas.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Demonstrate proficiency in hysteroscopic, laparoscopic, and robotic myomectomy on simulation models in a dry lab setting; 2) integrate and employ the most up-to-date contained tissue extraction techniques; and 3) apply proper surgical techniques to minimize complications and enhance the success of minimally invasive myomectomy.
