The Pelvic Anatomy Expo 2022 is a collaborative event to reflect the evolving need for cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer. The Expo will include six separate didactic and hands-on cadaver courses spanning eight days.
Throughout the week, we have our traditional 6th Hands-On Advanced Retroperitoneal Anatomy and Neuroanatomy of the Pelvis: Hands-on Cadaver Course, which is offered in Portuguese, Spanish and English. This program is designed for advanced gynecologic, urologic and colorectal Surgeons and focuses on pelvic neuroanatomy and nerve-sparing techniques. The English course is scheduled to provide a seamless transition to merge with the new Surgical and Clinical Implications of Pelvic, Hip, Spine, and Core Neuroanatomy: A Multidisciplinary Didactic and Hands-on Cadaver Course.
This new course is designed to serve as a “hands-on discussion forum” for all specialties dealing with spinal, pelvic and/or deep gluteal portions of the lumbosacral plexus to share their vision of this complex anatomy.
The Pelvic Anatomy Expo also welcomes two additional advanced procedural courses to join this project – Applied Retroperitoneal Anatomy and Advanced Laparoscopic Procedures for the Gynecologic Oncologist and Advanced Anatomy and Surgical Techniques for the Management of Deeply Infiltrating Endometriosis. Both courses are designed to take gynecologic surgeons to the next level in treating these complex conditions. The courses will focus on the Latin American advanced gynecologic surgeons and are offered in Portuguese and Spanish.
The advancement of retroperitoneal laparoscopic techniques has opened the doors to a whole new world of anatomical knowledge, which has produced better surgical outcomes with lower complication rates. Moreover, better understanding of intrapelvic neuroanatomy has pushed the boundaries of traditional medical specialties and fostered immense collaboration opportunities between gynecologists, colorectal surgeons, and urologists, as well as between these pelvic surgeons with hip, spine, and peripheral nerve surgeons.
