Audio-Digest Foundation Announces the Release of General Surgery Volume 60, Issue 03: Minimally Invasive Surgery.

The goal of this program is to improve surgical outcomes through the appropriate use of minimally invasive techniques. After hearing and assimilating this program, the clinician will be better able to:

1. Identify the benefits and risks of minimally invasive surgical techniques.
2. Evaluate the evidence comparing single-incision laparoscopy (SILS) to standard laparoscopy.
3. Select appropriate candidates for robotic, single-incision, and flexible laparoscopic surgery.
4. Apply effective surgical techniques to SILS and flexible laparoscopy.
5. Weigh the high costs of new surgical technologies against their benefits for patients and surgeons.

The original programs were presented by Robert A. Wiebe, MD, Clinical Professor, Pediatric Emergency Medicine, University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center, Dallas, and Lalit Bajaj, MD, MPH, Associate Professor of Pediatrics, University of Colorado School of Medicine, and Research Director, Section of Emergency Medicine, Children’s Hospital, Denver.
