Mumbai, India - On 29th October, 2018, LapGuru, the leading online platform for surgical training by Meditorch Technologies, provided its audience with a first of its kind, interactive live surgery broadcast of a Gender Reassignment Surgery, male to female. The surgery featured Single Stage Penile Flap Inversion Technique and was done under the aegis of USI (Urology Society of India). The surgery was conducted at Kokilaben Dhirubhai Ambani Hospital (KDAH), Mumbai by eminent Urologist and surgeon Dr. Sanjay Pandey.
“Whether it is a simple surgery or something as complex and niche as a gender reassignment surgery, there is always an audience that benefits from the knowledge that is imparted during such workshops. We are pleased to work with senior surgeons like Dr. Pandey and leading hospitals like KDAH in supporting such initiatives" said Prashant Apte, CEO, Meditorch Technologies. LapGuru is one of the unique platforms that has been consistently improving the learning quotient for surgeons by making accessible surgical procedures from the simplest to the rarest of rare, he further added.
This type of surgery is one of the most complex and rare procedures in modern medicine. There are very few surgeons in the world who have specifically trained for this, Dr. Sanjay Pandey being one of them and is also a leading authority on the subject. By broadcasting this surgery live, LapGuru has established ‘Live Transmission’ as a valuable tool for medical education. Surgeons need to develop creative solutions to the problems that arise in the operating room through experience, but for the professional knowledge LapGuru is their ‘Go-to’ platform when it comes to accessing resources for learning current practices and surgical strategies.
