Focus on Technique- Laparoscopic Pediatric Hernia Repair 2014-HD

Pediatric Surgery
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.
