24th Annual Conference Rodney Appell Memorial Update in Gynecologic Urology

The Bight Settlement, PR TC
February 7, 2019 to February 9, 2019
This course is intended to provide the gynecologists and urologists with advanced knowledge 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 knowledge of how to evaluate and treat women with lower urogenital tract abnormalities, pelvic prolapse, incontinence, pelvic pain and surgical complications. Advanced techniques for the evaluation and treatment of women with incontinence and pelvic floor dysfunction will be discussed by a faculty of internationally recognized experts.
The video sessions will provide the participant with an opportunity to view actual procedures and techniques discussed in the didactic sessions. The expert panel discussions will enable the participants to better appreciate the differences and diversity of approaches to treat these conditions. Both the panel discussions and video presentations will also allow the participants to interact with the faculty in a more informal atmosphere for an open exchange of ideas.
