ENYGO Laparoscopy Hands-on Workshop

November 8 - 10, 2018 Rome, Italy

Laparoscopy is part of the basic knowledge of a gynecologic oncologic surgeon.

Laparoscopic surgery in gynecologic oncology is quickly evolving and requires a specific learning path. Moreover, although many principles of open surgery may be applied, performing laparoscopic procedures requires different skills. Thus, the ENYGO didactic-practical course aims to shorten the time of training, by learning different surgical techniques, by developing the necessary psychomotor abilities and becoming comfortable with the equipment.



Learning objectives

The main goal of this course is to provide the participants with the necessary laparoscopic knowledge and psychomotorical skills, practicing the procedures on pelvic trainers and animal models, to transfer in live surgery.


Workshop will be as interactive as possible with hands-on training and live surgery, completed with questions and answers from the professors.


Target audience

The course is primarily intended for Fellows in Gynecology Oncology.

From a technical point of view, this is not a basic course for initial practitioner, thus attendees are required to be familiar with MIS in their daily practice.

From a scientific point of view, this course will provide correct indication for MIS in gynecologic oncology; attendees are required to be familiar with ESGO guidelines.

Attendance is limited to max 12 participants ENYGO members who must be fluent in English.
