    Message from the AAGL President: AAGL Announces Its Online Master Course on Vaginal Hysterectomy

    In April of this year, one of the largest healthcare insurance providers in the US began requiring prior authorization for certain hysterectomy procedures, however vaginal hysterectomies done on an outpatient basis did not require that process. This new initiative was instituted in part to align with ACOG’s statement that the vaginal approach is associated with better patient outcomes and fewer complications then abdominal hysterectomy. 

    This renewed emphasis on vaginal hysterectomy highlighted the fact that there is a low population of gynecologic surgeons incorporating the vaginal approach. To help bridge this gap and continue the mission to provide relevant, quality education to gynecologic surgeons, AAGL has produced an intensive multi-part ‘Master Course’ webinar series on vaginal hysterectomy.

    WATCH ON-DEMAND: Dr. Mario Castellanos on “When Surgery Fails to Relive Pain”


    On July 24, 2015 at 9am PDT / 12 noon EDT, Dr. Mario E. Castellanos presented a live webcast on ”When Surgery Fails To Relieve Pain” live on SurgeryU HD. Click on the link above to watch a replay of the event.

    Chronic pelvic pain is a highly prevalent but challenging diagnosis that affects 15% of women. With over 40% of gynecologic laparoscopies performed for chronic pelvic pain, it is important to understand and work up patients for various origins. This course provides a guide to approaching patients who continue to have pelvic pain despite undergoing operative laparoscopy or resection of endometriosis. It will focus on the most common causes of chronic pelvic pain associated with endometriosis including bladder pain syndrome, hypertonic pelvic floor disorders, and irritable bowel syndrome. 

    At the conclusion of this activity, the participant will be able to: 1) Identify common causes of persistent chronic pelvic pain that is not alleviated after gynecologic surgery; 2) Implement a diagnostic process for evaluation of theses causes, and; 3) Recommend appropriate treatment options.
