AAGL’s 5th Annual Meeting on Laparoscopic, Robotic & Vaginal Hysterectomy with Comprehensive Hands-on Workshop on Laparoscopic Suturing & Knot-Tying with Simulation – December 5-6, 2013 in New York, NYDecember 6, 2013
AAGL would like to thank those who attended the 5th Annual Meeting on Laparoscopic, Robotic & Vaginal Hysterectomy with Comprehensive Hands-on Workshop on Laparoscopic Suturing & Knot-Tying with Simulation, December 5-6, 2013 at the Roosevelt Hotel in New York, NY. This two day course was designed for physicians interested in incorporating minimally invasive gynecologic surgery (MIGS) into their surgical armamenterium, and for the recent graduate interested in reinforcing their knowledge of MIGS. If you missed this course, we look forward to welcoming you to one of our upcoming educational courses in 2014!
