Rao Hospital will host ‘Insight 15,’ an international conference on infertility and a hands-on workshop on IUI (Intra Uterine Insemination) and Hysteroscopy Surgical Techniques. The seminar will be held on August 29 and 30 at Rao Hospital, Hotel Residency, and Hotel Heritage Inn. The event is being conducted in association with Covai Obstetrics and Gynecology Society (COGS) and the Tamilnadu & Pondicherry chapters of Indian Society for Assisted Reproduction (TAPISAR).
Among the visiting surgeons this year are Dr. K. Jayaprakasan, Honorary Associate Professor for Assisted Reproductive Medicine & Surgery at Royal Derby Hospital and the University of Nottingham (UK), and Dr. Chan Yik Si Louis, Director of Hong Kong Reproductive Medicine Centre.
The hands-on hysteroscopy workshop will be held at Rao Hospital from 8 AM to 2 PM on August 29. From 2.30 PM to 6 PM, a hands-on IUI workshop will be conducted at Hotel Heritage Inn, Ramnagar. On August 30, the speakers will discuss various topics concerning infertility. This will be held at The Residency, Avanashi Road, from 9 AM to 5 PM.
Says Dr. Asha Rao of Rao Hospital, “We have been hosting the Insight meets for nearly 15 years now. At each of these meets, we discuss topical issues. This time around, it is infertility and women’s health. Both are areas of great concern. Infertility is growing and a larger number of people need help conceiving a child. And, hysteroscopy is an important tool to help people with problems related to infertility as well as those outside of it.”
The sessions, she says, also help train young doctors and aid in the sharing of knowledge. “So many doctors from within the country and outside have conducted extensive research. Events such as these are a great way to tap into their knowledge base. Experienced surgeons can pass on skills to juniors during the hands-on sessions,” she adds.
