Event Date: Mon - 1 Aug, 2022

Location: World Laparoscopy Hospital
Good morning everyone, and welcome to the first day of our surgery batch for August 2022. I am honored to have the opportunity to introduce you to the exciting world of minimal access surgery, and to demonstrate the various port access techniques and hand instruments used in these procedures.
Minimal access surgery, also known as laparoscopic surgery, is a surgical technique that uses small incisions and specialized instruments to perform surgery with minimal disruption to the body. This approach results in less pain, faster recovery times, and fewer complications compared to traditional open surgery.
During this course, we will be covering a range of minimal access procedures, including laparoscopic cholecystectomy, laparoscopic appendectomy, and laparoscopic hernia repair. We will also cover the use of different types of ports and hand instruments used in these procedures.
To start, I will be demonstrating how to properly access the abdomen using the Veress needle and the open technique. I will also demonstrate the different types of ports and hand instruments used in laparoscopic surgery, including graspers, dissectors, scissors, and staplers.
By the end of this course, you will have a comprehensive understanding of minimal access surgery and be equipped with the knowledge and skills to perform these procedures safely and effectively.
Thank you for joining us today, and I look forward to working with all of you as we embark on this exciting journey together.
