Hospital is India based Advanced Gynecological Laparoscopic Training & Center for Excellence for most of the Gynecological Endoscopic Surgeries. Dr. Pragnesh Shah, Dr. Foram Vora & Dr. Parulben Shah are Experienced Laparoscopic Surgeons & they have experience of most of the Advanced Gynecological Surgeries with world class infra structure in Ahmedabad for any difficult & complicated laparoscopic surgeries.
Recent advances in minimally invasive surgery have seen widespread applications in many surgical specialties & more in Gynecological surgeries.
Today the Laparoscopic & Hysteroscopic approach is being used in a growing number of Gynecological procedures with significant potential medical and economical and faster recovery benefits to patients.
Furthermore, in this era of Google information are demanding to know all the options to available to them with pros and cons and benefits of each.
With more & more gynecologists performing Laparoscopies had led to tremendous development and also increased complication rate. Professional with tangent thinking go beyond excellence & are in a position to provide multiple options with safety to a given situations for their patient’s problem.
It is the ongoing training which motivates you to do things correctly & differently to achieve results different from conventional average. It was perhaps inevitable that the learning curve would be accompanied by a variety of complications and difficulties in performing Endoscopic surgery.
These adverse outcomes are further compounded by the crisis in poor Endoscopic training program and lack of adequate accreditation system and of minimum standards.
The other major issue is the need for surgeons to take special training in performing the many operations that are available by this means. Even surgeons that are brilliant in open techniques need special training to transfer their excellent surgical skills in 2D viewing on the video monitor and display during endoscopic surgery.
The need for additional training is because laparoscopic surgeons leave the familiar territory of a three-dimensional operating field to working on a two-dimensional flat video display
In consideration of the innate desire to attain excellence in latest Gynecological practice, these courses are designed to comprehensively review a wide range of opportunities for the aspiring gynecologic surgeon. After more than a decade and a half of “Endoscopic revolution” dating from the historical first laparoscopic hysterectomy in 1989, almost every open gynecological procedure that has been described has been successfully performed endosmotically. In addition, numerous new procedures have also been developed based on a greater understanding of pelvic anatomy, improved surgical skills and modern energy sources. Following any Laparotomy for Gynae. Condition gives rise to adhesions with abdominal wall in about 50% of cases. Out of which 50% develops pain in abdomen because of adhesions and compels many patients for redo surgery for pain in the form of Laparoscopic Adhesiolysis. Let me share with you my commonest experience: When we do Laparoscopic Adhesiolysis- patient and her relatives always objects and ask us: Why my primary Gynae surgery had not been done by Laparoscopy and as a result why I had second surgery in the form of Laparoscopic Adhesiolysis. This fact should be eye opener fact for every surgeon, as he may be disrepute for not offering the option of Laparoscopic surgery while doing laparotomy for any Gynae condition. NRI patients and even our Indian patients are demanding this option for different Gynecological conditions because of its obvious benefits.
Meeting the growing demands for Endoscopic Surgery
In response to this growing demand, Dr.Pragnesh Shah, the Course Director is offering the personalized training for the practicing Gynecologist with vision of developing, learning and incorporating Gynecological Endoscopy in their own existing practice to reach the upper edge in already competitive practice. His state-of-the-art Jyoti Hospital & Minimum Invasive Surgery center and Advanced Endoscopic Training Centre at Ahmedabad, India. The personalized course has been rated highly by participants and recognized and supported by the academic resources of the Federation of Obstetricians and Gynecologists of India (FOGSI) and Indian Association of Gynecological Endoscopist (IAGE) & FOGSI-ICOG.
Technical skills in the field of laparoscopic surgery have been taught in specialized training center for last twenty years. Studies have shown that unlike open surgery, mere observing cases or assisting a surgeon does not improve the necessary skill to become a laparoscopic surgeon. Ergonomics & Physics of laparoscopic surgery is completely different than open surgery & mastery of hand-eye co-ordination requires thorough exposure over animal tissue followed by same skill demonstration in operation theatre. Laparoscopic techniques skill acquisition need “Hand on” training under specialized guidance because the field of view is limited, peripheral vision is not possible & the operative field is represented in two dimensions on a video monitor. Unlike open surgery, where the surgeon is facilitated verbally & manually through assistantship from the opposite side of the operating table, in video-endoscopic surgery verbal directives is not of much help & there is an increased reliance on the technical skills of the surgeon. To achieve these basic skills & to imbibe the principles of laparoscopic surgery, training in simulated operative environments & observation of state-of-the-art surgery in operation theatre has become a necessity.
You will get chance to observe operation theatre. It is not possible to let perform surgery independently (free-hand). Because it is not in the favor of patient’s safety & life. According to international ethical guidelines independent learning over human patient is strictly prohibited. However, you will get enough chance to assist.
You will be certified by the Course Director and institute is recognized by Federation of Obstetrics & Gynecological Societies of India (FOGSI) and FOGSI-ICOG following theory & practical exam assessment.
