Do you have any advice for the young physician that is starting out in the world of gynecologic minimally invasive surgery?
By in large the gynecological world today is minimally invasive surgery. Young physicians are well advised to attempt only those procedures for which they have had adequate training. If they are not trained they should either seek a mentor to help them or refer the patient.
All gynecologists will deal with the very common problem of abnormal bleeding. A D & C is not an
appropriate diagnostic approach. At a minimum all should be able inspect the uterine cavity by hysteroscopy.
Diagnostic hysteroscopy is not a difficult procedure to learn.
