This course is designed to provide the participant with a systematic and comprehensive overview of laparoscopic hysterectomy from leading experts in the field.  The course will focus on practical skills that will help surgeons become more efficient and safe, including advanced surgical strategies to tackle more difficult cases (i.e., large fibroid uteri, adhesions, etc.) without conversion. Education will be enhanced by using videos to demonstrate surgical techniques and practical application of these methods. Participants will learn how to bridge the gap that separates novice from expert surgeons through a thoughtful overview of proper surgical technique, retroperitoneal anatomy, performance of retroperitoneal dissections, complication avoidance and management, and advanced laparoscopic suturing. Participants are encouraged to register for the afternoon cadaveric lab, which will provide the opportunity to immediately apply skills learned in the didactic course to the “real world.”

Learning Objectives
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Comfortably identify anatomical structures and perform fundamental laparoscopic surgical procedures, including but not limited to, identification and dissection of the retroperitoneal space, laparoscopic ureterolysis, advanced laparoscopic suturing; review surgical strategies for success when faced with intra-operative challenges; 2) develop proficiency to identify retroperitoneal anatomy and trace the uterine artery from its origin in the retroperitoneum in order to complete difficult cases and minimize conversion to laparotomy; and 3) employ time-tested tips and tricks to improve surgical efficiency, enhance patient outcomes, and minimize complications.

Target Audience
This educational activity is developed to meet the needs of residents, fellows and new minimally invasive specialists in the field of gynecology.
