Leipzig School of Radical Pelvic Surgery - Better Operations for Better Outcomes
 Universitätsmedizin Leipzig

Courses

To achieve the educational goals of the Leipzig School, twice a year, usually in spring and fall, courses on the new operative therapy of malignant disease of the lower female genital tract are held at the University of Leipzig Medical Center.

The courses are addressed to advanced gynecologic surgeons but also to colleagues that are interested in getting to know the new operations. The courses comprise lectures, anatomical workshops and live surgery in an interactive format for a small group of international participants. The limited number of attending colleagues ensures intensive learning and in-depth discussion with the faculty members.

The biannual courses consist of 2-day blocks. The block subjects cover:

Block A: Total mesometrial resection (TMMR)
Block B: Vulvar field resection & anatomical reconstruction (VFR+AR)
Block C: Extended mesometrial resection (EMMR) & laterally extended endopelvic resection (LEER)

A one-day special course: Therapeutic lymph node dissection (tLND)

Course language is English and German.
