A congress on gynaecological endoscopic surgery, a surgical discipline that uses optical instruments specially designed to help diagnose gynaecological disorders and pathologies has commenced in Cameroon.
The discipline assists in diagnosing disorders such as infertility problems, minor vaginal haemorrhages (bleeding), or endometrial polyps, among others.
The 2nd International Society for Gynaecologic Endoscopy (ISGE)-African Society for Gynaecological Endoscopy (AFSGE) International Congress opened Monday in Cameroon’s capital, Yaounde.
The congress aims to “enhance minimally invasive gynecological surgery in an African setting” and expects to be a “turning point for the future of gynaecological endoscopic surgery in Africa” in terms of its development and expansion. The congress will conclude Friday.
Jean Marie Kasia, president of the AFSGE, said world-leading surgeons in this field will be in attendance at the congress, which will also seek groundbreaking and innovative approaches to handling endoscopic procedures.
“During the conference, practitioners will improve their surgical skills. This provides an opportunity for innovation, collaboration and cooperation in endoscopic surgery and human reproduction research,” Jean Marie Kasia said.
