A look at what to expect at AAGL's 45th congress.

The 45th AAGL Global Conference starts today in Orlando, Florida with the theme “Advancing Minimally Invasive Gynecology through Mentorship and Emerging Technology.” The Congress promises a wealth of learning opportunities with postgraduate courses, surgical tutorials, and panel discussions.

As always the Congress will touch on timely topics such as tissue extraction, the controversies surrounding Essure, diagnosis and treatment of isthmoceles, cosmetogynecology, and radio-frequency ablation for fibroids. Physicians looking to brush up with continuing medical education can choose from 5 general sessions, 8 panel sessions, 8 plenary sessions, 7 surgical tutorials, and 25 postgraduate courses. Educational content will touch on related subspecialties like oncology, urogynecology, and infertility. More than 870 abstracts will be presented over 5 days.

Popular Congress features like Stump the Professor and telesurgery sessions will be returning. This year’s keynote address by Scott Parazynski, MD, will cover his experiences as an entrepreneur-innovator who worked with multidisciplinary teams and discuss the need to promote innovation and mentorship to benefit healthcare.

Plus, the Contemporary OB/GYN team will be there to give you the data you need. Be sure to visit us at Booth #1315.
