Fellowship in Minimally Invasive Gynecology
Note: Applications are not being accepted for this fellowship for the 2012-2013 academic year
This program is designed as a one-year integrated training leading to expertise in minimally invasive gynecology.
This program has a high volume of advanced laparoscopy and hysteroscopy surgery, including urogynecologic surgery. Fellows assist surgery in the operating room and gradually conduct advanced laparoscopic or hysteroscopic surgery under supervision. They will increasingly accept full responsibility for any surgical or medical management.
A unique feature of our program is the incorporation of fertility preservation procedures to gynecologic endoscopy. These include laparoscopic ovarian suspension for young women undergoing pelvic radiation, and laparoscopic abdominal cerclage for women with repeated pregnancy loss who have failed conventional vaginal cerclage. Laparoscopic suturing is performed on a routine basis; for example suturing for tubal anastomosis, suturing of vaginal vault, and suturing of myomectomy incision. Besides conventional gynaecologic endoscopic surgery, some cases will be performed with robotic assistance.
Fellows are expected to conduct research and publish their results.
