All advancements of medical science and technology in the fields of treatment, care and health of women has to be regarded as a tribute to all women and the society has to ensure that its benefits reached every woman,  Dr. K N Raghavan, Commissioner, GST & Central Excise, Mumbai said. He was inaugurating the Seventh International Conference and Live Surgery Workshop on Gynaecological Endoscopy (ILES 2018) at the Gokulam Convention Center Kaloor, Kochi.


The benefits of latest and advanced technologies are yet to reach people in rural areas of the state. The health care sector, medical practitioners, hospitals and voluntary organizations have to come forward and formulate strategies to create awareness and give access to the best and current medical treatment and care to women in rural and urban areas, especially the underprivileged. Gynecology has to be viewed and understood as a branch of science for love and worship of women, he said. Dr. Matthew Siedhoff, leading Gynecologist from USA delivered the keynote address. Dr. Gracy Thomas, President, COGS, Dr. Prakash Trivedi, Dr. Kurien Joseph and Dr. George Paul also spoke.


The three day scientific meet was organized by Pauls Hospital, Kadavanthra. More than thousand delegates from all over India and eminent foreign faculty  attended the  conference.


Outlining the growth and development of Gynaecological Endoscopy from conventional straight stick keyhole surgery to robotics, Dr. Paul P.G, Organizing Chairman and Chief Gynaecologist, Pauls Hospital, Kaloor said that latest 3D imaging and robotic laparoscopic techniques supply enlarged three dimensional imaging of surgical elements facilitating faster and more accurate surgery. The   advantage is that the recovery is prompt and the patients can immediately return to their normal activities.  Special sessions are held on the removal of endometriosis and ovarian tumors through minimally invasive procedures, he said.


The conference began in the morning at 8 am with live surgery workshops performed on patients by various experts of international repute.  A series of live surgeries performed at various speciality centres in India and abroad were telecast live through a 3D visual communication system to the venue on the first day.
