The laparoscopic sacropopexy and laparoscopic lateral suspension with meshes are two excellent examples.
What is the focus of "Laparoscopic anatomy of the pelvic floor" ?
In order to successfully perform these operations, detailed knowledge of the anatomy of the pelvic floor as “seen from above”, i.e., from the abdominal view, is an invaluable asset. Achieving perfect knowledge of the anatomical details is now possible, thanks to laparoscopy. With the aid of laparoscopy, following subperitoneal dissections, reconstructive surgery of the pelvic floor can be made substantially more precise, more exact, and also more anatomical.
This atlas will allow gynaecologic surgeons to deepen and improve their anatomical expertise, with the aid of laparoscopy.
It also describes in detail the most common laparoscopic operative techniques. The book represents a new and unique approach to anatomy studied in the living, and supplements the main content with a wealth of straightforward and clearly explained photographs.
Who are the authors of "Laparoscopic anatomy of the pelvic floor" ?
Professor Jean-Bernard Dubuisson remains one of the great pioneers of surgical laparoscopy since the 1980s. He is recognized as an outstanding teacher in Europe and around the world and he has given hundreds of international conferences and trained a large number of gynaecologists.
Professor Dubuisson was appointed Professor of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the University of Paris in 1980 and at the University of Geneva in 2003. He was made Doctor Honoris Causa of the University of Athens in 2005, and Knight of the French Legion of Honour in 1996. Today Prof. Dubuisson is Honorary Professor at the University of Geneva, and holds numerous positions as Head of the Maternity Department, as well as in several French and international organizations (SFEG, SFCP, ESHRE, AAGL, Académie Française de Chirurgie, IRCAD). He is currently working at the Champel Institute in Geneva.
Dr. Jean Dubuisson is part of the new generation of great European gynaecological surgeons expert in laparoscopic and vaginal surgery. His expertise extends from cancer to endometriosis and uro-gynecology.
Dr. Dubuisson graduated from the School of Medicine at the University of Lyon. He practiced between 2008 and 2012 at the University Hospitals of Lyon and Geneva. He learned and acquired extensive experience in laparoscopy, vaginal surgery, oncology and pelvic anatomy. He acquired many academic certifications, most of which are related to gynaecological surgery. Today he is head of the gynaecological surgery unit at the University Hospitals of Geneva, and he has published some fifty papers and made numerous presentations at congresses in Switzerland, France and abroad.
Juan Puigventos is a researcher familiar with all the technologies related to uro-gynecology. By background, he is a former research chemist, particularly in new technologies for the fractionated production of human plasma (Swiss Institute of Serum and Vaccines Bern, Switzerland) and he is also a former molecular biochemistry researcher (CIBA Basel, Switzerland). He is also a former specialist in the sale of transplantation therapies (immunosuppression) (Fresenius, Switzerland), sales manager for surgical endoscopy (Olympus for Switzerland and Europe) and for new product development (pfm medical cpp SA Switzerland).
