On September 7-11, 2015 the Center of Surgical Innovation held a week long professional development course “Practical skills of laparoscopic pelvic surgery” (the course instructor – Candidate of Medicine T. Petrenko).
The theoretical program of the course involved safe laparoscopy, pelvic tumor processes, types of surgical energies and their appliance in laparoscopy.
When training on laparoscopic simulators the course participants improved their practical skills in suturing and knotting techniques on biological tissue. They also discussed the patients’ cases, defined the methods of treatment, watched and commented on surgery videos.
During their Vet Lab practice the surgeons performed a number of surgical interventions on a lab pig, trained dissection, suturing and vessel ligation.
One of the course days turned out to be the busiest, as the doctors assisted Professor I. Gladchiuk in the operating room. The Professor was considerate to each course participant during the operation day.
We are sure that the knowledge and experience acquired will help the surgeons in their practical work and wish everybody success.
See you in 2016 !
