April 15-20, 2024: 2nd Annual Pelvic Anatomy Expo 

Course Chair: N. Lemos, M.D.

The Pelvic Anatomy Expo 2024 is a collaborative event to reflect the evolving need for cross-disciplinary knowledge transfer. The expo will include five separate didactic and hands-on cadaver courses spanning six days.

The advancement of retroperitoneal laparoscopic techniques has opened the doors to a new world of anatomical knowledge, producing better surgical outcomes with lower complication rates. Moreover, an improved understanding of intrapelvic neuroanatomy has pushed the boundaries of traditional medical specialties and fostered immense collaboration opportunities between gynecologists, colorectal surgeons, urologists, and pelvic surgeons who specialize in hip, spine and peripheral nerves.

The expo starts with the Advanced Anatomy and Surgical Techniques for the Management of Deeply Infiltrating Endometriosis Course, which will be offered in English (Course 1) and Spanish (Course 2) simultaneously.  The second half of the expo will include the 3rd Annual Fundamentals of Advanced Laparoscopic Gynecology Surgery Course, offered in Spanish (Course 3), and our traditional 7th Hands-On Advanced Neuroanatomy of the Pelvis: Hands-on Cadaver Course, offered in English (Course 4). The 7th Hands-On Advanced Neuroanatomy of the Pelvis: Hands-on Cadaver Course is designed for advanced gynecologic, urologic and colorectal surgeons and focuses on pelvic neuroanatomy and nerve-sparing techniques and provides a seamless transition to merge with the Surgical and Clinical Implications of Pelvic, Hip, Spine, and Core Neuroanatomy Course (Course 5). This course will include 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.  In addition to the surgical disciplines, Course 5 is open to Physical Therapists.
