Live: Focus on Technique: Laparoscopic Peds Hernia Repair 3/6/14

This series, "Focus on Technique" will be brief courses throughout the year that are focused on teaching the fine points of a particular technique rather than the usual full-day Globalcasts which are centered on the nuances of treatment of disease process.

"Focus on Technique: Laparoscopic Pediatric Hernia Repair"
Recently, the non-mesh laparoscopic pediatric hernia repair in children and adolescents has gained immense popularity. This event, "Focus on Technique: Laparoscopic Pediatric Hernia Repair" is designed to provide practicing surgeons what they need to know in order to perform this procedure on their own and will focus on the fine points of the technique.

​We will present many of the different options available for the non-mesh lap hernia repair and then focus on the specific steps of the lap-assisted, percutaneous technique as described by Darius Patkowski. This course will be an on-site course at Akron Children's Hospital but the didactic portion of the course will be simulcasted for the virtual audience. The different techniques and instrumentation are demonstrated through in-depth, evidence-based discussions, review of edited surgical videos, and discussion of surgical tips and tricks.  On-site participants will watch live surgical cases and have the opportunity for direct one on one discussion with the faculty.
