Advanced Minimal Access Paediatric Surgery Training Course

Course Outline

Minimal Access Surgery has become an integral part of Paediatric Surgery. Many paediatric surgeons have acquired skills to perform basic minimal access Paediatric Surgery. However, very few are proficient in performing advanced minimal access Paediatric Surgery. This three-day course is planned to make the delegates confident in performing advance minimal access Paediatric Surgery including Fundoplication, Esophagomyotomy for Achalasia Cardia, surgery for malrotation of small bowel, Pyloromyotomy, Splenectomy, pull through surgeries for Hirschsprung’s disease and anorectal malformations, surgery for Meckel’s Diverticulum, Nephrectomy and Nephroureterectomy, Pyeloplasty, thoracoscopic repair of diaphragmatic hernia and lung biopsy, etc. Knot-tying and suturing in laparoscopic surgery has been the “Achilles’ heel” of novices and sometimes even of an experienced laparoscopic surgeon. The course will have dedicated sessions to make the delegates confident of intra and extracorporeal suturing. The animal tissue laboratory will give opportunity to have adequate hands-on experience, which will further boost the confidence of the delegates.
