Course summary:
This will be a ‘hands-on’ cadaver workshop where the delegates will be given the opportunity to practise the technique of placing sacrospinous sutures for mid-compartment prolapse and tension free vaginal tapes for stress urinary incontinence. We will be limiting the number of delegates in this workshop to ensure a favourable student to proctor ratio and to allow each delegate enough time to become comfortable with the technique.

The workshop is aimed at specialist or trainee Obstetrician Gynaecologists and Urologists who have an interest in Urogynaecology, either those at the start of their learning curve or experienced surgeons looking to perfect their technique.
