APAGE Regional Congress 2019 - Controversies in Minimally Invasive Surgery, An Evolving Journey in Gynaecology
This annual event is organized by the Minimally Invasive Surgery Unit, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital in collaboration with SingHealth Duke-NUS OBGYN Academic Clinical Programme and the Asia-Pacific Association of Gynecologic Endoscopy and Minimally Invasive Therapy (APAGE). This Congress will be held from 23 - 27 July 2019.
APAGE team is excited to bring you this year’s theme “Controversies in Minimally Invasive Surgery”. As the field of minimally invasive surgery advances, we often challenge ourselves to more complicated cases such as in cases of large uteri, frozen pelvis from endometriosis, severe adhesions from previous surgery and advanced pelvic cancers.
This year, we are honoured to have Dr Kim Tae Joong and Dr Sun Ching-Hsien performing live surgeries. There will also be a series of key lectures delivered by experts from around the region. The congress acts as a platform for experts and delegates to exchange their experience on techniques and approaches in challenging surgeries. There will be a showcase of latest medical and surgical innovations that can help us overcome these difficult situations.
The main congress will be followed by a hysteroscopy workshop which is suitable for the basic to the advanced laparoscopist. The workshop is open for expert and novice hysteroscopists who want to update their knowledge and skills in conventional hysteroscopy as well as learn about the application of new technologies. Delegates will experience hands-on training in diagnostic and mechanical operative hysteroscopy and endometrial resection.
We thank our industry partners who generously continue to support us in making this a successful event. We hope that this congress will present an opportunity for delegates to learn, forge relationships and enjoy what Singapore has to offer!
