Embracing the ethos of optimal patient care in the modern medical era requires dedication to pursuing minimally invasive routes. Within this context, endoscopic surgeries encompassing laparoscopic and robotic platforms, in conjunction with transabdominal or transvaginal approaches, offer a comprehensive armamentarium for intricate procedures such as those involving endometriosis, congenital anomalies, and cervical cancer. The landscape of gynecologic diseases has undergone a transformative shift, with the majority now amenable to treatment through endoscopic surgery.

The gradual integration of robotic surgery is of notable significance, owing to its capacity to bestow heightened visual control and enhanced dexterity. Amidst this progression, endometriosis emerges as a common yet intricate benign ailment that challenges surgeons due to its propensity to affect diverse vital organs. The pursuit of eradicating this condition through minimally invasive pathways perennially engages the surgeon's cognitive acumen, technical precision, and surgical finesse.

Transvaginal and endoscopic surgical techniques form indispensable cornerstones within contemporary gynecological minimally invasive practices. The convergence of Transvaginal Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) training and its application in endometriosis surgery serves as a testament to the forefront of minimally invasive surgical progress.

A pinnacle within the realm of endoscopic interventions is the domain of endoscopic fetal surgery. This area, in conjunction with addressing congenital anomalies, stands as a remarkable highlight. This course imparts diverse invaluable tips and tricks for navigating the intricacies of minimally invasive gynecological surgery with finesse.

Course Objectives:
Upon successful completion of this program, participants will achieve the following learning outcomes:
1.  Proficiency in the utilization of laparoscopic surgery techniques for address both benign nd malignant gynecological conditions.
2. Comprehensive understanding of vNOTES training methodology and its application in endometriosis surgery.
3. Skillful assessment of the appropriate utilization of laparoscopic and robotic surgeries, facilitating a more confident approach for surgeons in real-world clinical scenarios.
4. Enhancement of gynecologists' cognitive framework surrounding minimally invasive surgery, enabling more informed and improved surgical decision-making.
