By concentrating on essential skills, all trainees develop the necessary fundamentals of laparoscopy, which enable them to learn laparoscopic techniques covered in this course.

The course starts with learning laparoscopic access techniques, Safe Trocar insertion, pneumoperitoneum, suturing and knotting, dissection techniques, tissue retrieval techniques, principle of baseball diamond concept of port position, principles of safe use of various energy sources and every essential skills which the surgeon must master to perform complex laparoscopic operations and laparoscopic reconstructions. Laparoscopic surgeons after attending this course, should be able to perform all the taught procedures themselves on their patient, with confidence. This course aims at imparting the necessary theoretical knowledge (supported with videos) along with practice in highly advanced HD laparoscopic skill lab.

Laparoscopic Surgery Training

F.MAS Batch with Dr. Harsh Vardhan the honorable minister of Science and Technology (India)

This course is totally candidate centered and aims at imparting basic as well as advanced theoretical and practical knowledge in minimal access surgery to the young and experiences surgeons in a structured manner. Emphasis is on day to day practical problems that a Laparoscopic Surgeon faces.

This course is a must for anyone who wishes to pursue his/her career in the field of laparoscopic surgery in any discipline. Thus colleagues from the disciplines of surgery, gynecology, urology, pediatric surgery will stand to gain immensely from it. F.MAS laparoscopic training courses takes into account a broad range of students. There is the young resident who grew up in the video age and who possesses an ability to easily translate two dimensional images into three dimensional maneuvers, but at the other end of the spectrum is the established surgeon or ever professors with years of clinical experience who may find that the "feel" of an open technique is lost with laparoscopic maneuvers and who may have difficulties at first adapting to the lack of depth perception in a two dimensional field. When the surgeon is comfortable with the equipment, training in procedures with experimental state of the art HD wet operating room session will start.

The practicals of this course is ideal for a number of practice tasks, such as Cholecystectomy, Appendectomy, Hernia repair, Common Bile Duct Exploration, D.U Perforation repair, Salpingostomy for Ectopic Pregnancy, followed by Salpingectomy, LAVH, TLH, Bowel re­section, Lymphadenectomy, Vagotomy, Varicocelectomy, Nephrectomy, Orchiopexy, Retroperitoneoscopic and Thoracoscopic and other essential as well as advanced procedures.

Complete "Hands on Training of Laparoscopic Suturing and Knotting will be given. Before the surgeon can learn the subtleties of a new type of operation, the surgeon is reminded of the basics of the indications and contraindications for a given laparoscopic operation; the pertinent anatomy with regard to both an open technique and to a laparoscopic approach; the appropriate instrumentation; the technical plan, especially regarding trocar position, patient position, and the method to allow adequate exposure using traction and counter traction; the possible optional plans; and the possible associated complications, so the pitfalls can be recognized and avoided.

Suture repair and omental patching of a perforated Duodenal ulcer is readily simulated by creating an anterior duodenal perforation with the electrocautery probe. Truncal vagotomy, Posterior truncal vagotomy and Anterior Seromyotomy can then be practiced to learn the definitive acid reducing procedure. Other procedures such as liver biopsy, gastroesophageal reflux maneuvers, extra-peritoneal dissection, TEP and TAPP herniorrhaphy and Nephrectomy is also be performed, Gastric Banding can be reproduced in the animal model very nicely along with all colonic surgery. For surgeons to perform laparoscopic operations on human patients, they must practice the procedures and must become thoroughly familiar with the subtleties of each maneuver.
