21st Annual Conference Rodney Appell Memorial Update in Gynecologic Urology
This course is intended to provide the gynecologist and/or urologist with a functional understanding of the latest innovations in the evaluation and treatment of women with lower urogenital tract symptoms and voiding dysfunction. The didactic sessions will provide the participant with the basic knowledge of how to evaluate and treat women with lower urogenital tract abnormalities, pelvic prolapse, incontinence, pelvic pain and vaginal mesh complications. Basic and advanced techniques for the evaluation and treatment of women with incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction will be discussed by a faculty of experts. The video sessions will provide the participant with an opportunity to view actual procedures and techniques discussed in the didactic sessions.
The question and answer sessions will enable the participants to better appreciate the differences and diversity of approaches to treat these conditions. Both the question and answer sessions and video presentations will also allow the participants to interact with the faculty in a more informal atmosphere for an open exchange of ideas.
The target audience for this activity includes gynecologists, urologists, nurses, and other allied health care professionals seeking a comprehensive review of female pelvic medicine.
Upon completion of this course, the participants will be able to:
- Evaluate and treat genital prolapse both non-surgically and surgically;
- Identify how anti-incontinence operations work and their associated risks and benefits;
- Describe how to use and treat the complications of adjuvant grafts in reconstructive pelvic surgery;
- Identify and treat women with overactive bladder syndrome and also explain how to treat those with refractory symptoms.
