Mayo Clinic’s Collaborative Symposium on Gynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery
Dr. Jackson joined professional peers earlier this month at an intensive and comprehensive course hosted by the Mayo Clinic in Lahaina, Hawaii, from February 6-10, 2018.
The 6th Annual Collaborative Symposium: Update in Gynecology and Minimally Invasive Surgery included presentations and talks from distinguished faculty from the Mayo Clinic, Cleveland Clinic, and Harvard, on various topics including diagnosis and treatment for pelvic pain and prolapse, uterine fibroids, and gynecological malignancies, as well as specific sessions covering the latest updates in areas such as ovarian tissue transplantation, fibroids and endometriosis, hysteroscopy and perioperative management.
Designed to provide practicing gynecologists with practical updates in medical and surgical gynecology through hands-on experience and learning, each day of the conference was comprised of three sessions covering a specific topic, as well as workshops on advanced surgery techniques.
It is Dr. Jackson’s belief that medical practitioners like himself have the responsibility to stay informed about the newest procedures, techniques, and research available to ensure they continue to offer the most up-to-date and effective patient care available. One way is through such professional development opportunities. “It was an excellent conference and allowed me to ensure that my surgical technique is the most up to date,” he told his team back in Vancouver.
