In an attempt to educate the trained gynaecologists, Columbia Asia hospital organised a workshop where “live” footages of five vaginal hysterectomies were screened amidst 100 participating doctors from hospitals in Delhi and NCR.
“For the first time, we have organised such a huge workshop to educate the doctors about the ideal surgical procedures to remove uterus. This was imperative to spread awareness that vaginal hysterectomy is better than abdominal and laparoscopic hysterectomy when uterus is removed,” said Dr Ragini Aggarwal, head of department, gynaecology, Col-
umbia Asia Hospital and president of Gurgaon Obstetrician and Gynaecology Society (GOGS). All surgeries were conducted free of cost.
