Live Surgery: Laparoscopic Sacrocolpopexy
Is laparoscopic sacrocolpopexy the gold standard for apical prolapse repair? Hear the evidence and observe a live surgery demonstration by Dr. Chris Maher, a widely experienced urogynaecologist and laparoscopic surgeon from Australia. Dr. Maher will also share his ‘tips and tricks’ for learning and mastering the skills required for this procedure.

Vaginal Fistula Workshop
Prof. N Rajamaheswari is the first and foremost Indian urogynaecologist. Also qualified as a urological surgeon, she has led the subspecialty of urogynaecology in her homeland. For over forty years Prof. Rajamaheswari has championed the provision of high quality pelvic floor care including the establishment of exclusive fistula wards.  This workshop focusses on the diagnosis, prevention and management of genito-urinary fistulae. It is a wonderful opportunity to learn about this complex topic from a world expert.

Urodynamics Workshop
Do you find urodynamics a bit of a mystery? Do you know what information we can gain from this investigation? Are you unsure when a urodynamic study is indicated in prolapse and incontinence patients?
In this workshop you will learn how urodynamics can improve your assessment, aid in surgical decision-making and help manage post-operative complications. With tutorials by local faculty with Australian urogynaecologists Dr. Yik Lim and Dr. Jenny King you will also explain how to interpret urodynamic traces.
