Live surgery by A/Prof Alan Lam

Associate Professor Alan Lam was involved in performing live surgery of a laparoscopic mesh sacrocolpopexy from North Shore Private Hospital (NSPH), Sydney to the 47th American Association of Gynaecologic Laparoscopists (AAGL) annual global congress in Las Vegas, USA.

This was the first live transmission from Australia to the world’s peak congress dedicated to minimally invasive gynaecological surgery and was a resounding success.

A large audience over in Las Vegas were able to be guided through the surgery by A/Prof Lam and engage in interactive dialogue in real time during the procedure which was undertaken in the hospital’s new Stryker i-Suite.
