Introduction and Welcome
To celebrate 3 decades of excellence in clinical care, research and training in the subspecialty field of urogynaecology; members of the Urogynaecology Department of the Mercy Hospital for Women and their fellow associates have invited several very well known pelvic floor experts from around the world & Australasia to deliver this exciting educational event.
We recognise that there are reducing opportunities in the teachings of pelvic floor surgery and hope that a meeting like this could help improve the situation and stimulate interest in female pelvic floor disorders. In this meeting, you will be shown videos of transvaginal and abdominal pelvic floor repair surgeries, allowed ample time for you to quiz experts on surgical tips & case management; as well as engage in discussions on what we can do to prevent childbirth related pelvic floor trauma.
There will be an emphasis on creating a friendly and highly interactive environment for speakers and delegates to engage and learn from each other. There will also be an informal gala dinner at the Melbourne Aquarium (Yes, you get to wine & dine next to beautiful fish and the Yarra River) on the Friday evening whereby you will be able to network and catch up with colleagues.
We are all looking forwards to meeting you at the event. Register early to avoid disappointment!
