Surgery of the perineal and urogenital regions can be tedious and sometimes smelly. Grow your confidence in handling these surgeries in general practice. Covering a number of techniques, you can be sure to improve your soft tissue surgery skills. Our specialist educators will be there to guide you patient side, while you get hours of hands on experience. This workshop is designed to get you operating on the rear end of your patients with more conviction.

Do you struggle with…

  • Strictures after perineal urethrostomy?
  • Anatomy of the nerves around the anus?

All with the help and guidance of specialist educators, so you can put these skills into practice as soon as you’re back in the clinic.
