Apollo ties up with Healthium to offer advanced training in laparoscopic surgeries

April 19, 2022 0 By Team FM

The Apollo Simulation Centre, Vanagaram (ASC) has entered into an agreement with Healthium Medtech, a global medtech company, to offer advanced training in laparoscopic surgeries to young aspiring medical professionals. The programme will be launched with the laparoscopic hernia masterclass at the already available simulation centre at Apollo Speciality Hospitals, Vanagaram.

Laparoscopic surgery is one of the significant media advancements that has enabled day surgeries for quick recovery. This has evolved laparoscopicas a solution for a wide range of conditions that require surgeries in the abdominal cavity including cholecystectomy (removal of gallbladder), appendectomy (removal of appendix), advanced procedures for hernia repair and also gynaecological procedures. Laparoscopic procedures are mostly preferred by the patients and the doctors as they help in keeping the blood loss minimal, less scarring, speedy recovery, shorter hospital stay. 

Since most of the procedures are complex, simulation offers a way to master new skill sets, by training in the simulation centres. A laparoscopic simulator is a minimally-invasive surgical simulation training tool intended for learners and medical professionals alike. Laparoscopic training simulators are tools that can be used in training scenarios focused on laparoscopic surgery, as they demonstrate virtually all major abdominal surgical procedures. With these simulators, learners can begin to familiarise themselves with the performance methodologies.

 “Through this immersive masterclass that includes a variety of training techniques, we look forward to aspiring young surgeons gaining expertise in the area of laparoscopic surgery and developing their confidence in simulated clinical settings. We are happy to collaborate on this comprehensive training in the state of the art settings provided by ASC,” says Dr Ashok Moharana, Chief Medical Officer at Healthium Medtech. 

Dr Muralidharan M, Vice President, Apollo Knowledge and Director Medical Education, Southern Region, Apollo Hospitals, added that the course curriculum is carefully designed to upgrade the knowledge through online lectures, hands-on training on dry and harvested wet models, live surgeries, and panel discussions.
