Laparoscopy has become increasingly popular and it is often a preferred method of surgery due to its advantages such as shorter recovery time, less pain and less scarring. However, laparoscopy is not as straight-forward as the traditional surgeries, and it requires comprehensive training. Therefore, the Wits Surgical Society has decided to organise a laparoscopy workshop, where students will be able to experience and practise laparoscopic skills.

We offer students a basic introduction and a brief lecture on the theory of laparoscopy. Students then practice laparoscopy while our team circulates and teaches students individually.
