Surgical Tips & How to Improve Your Relations with your Surgical Colleagues
Through the course of this talk candidates should be able to optimize their procedural space and equipment required for office-based surgical treatment. Specific advise on well tested products will be given. Surgical beds, equipment, and space utilization will be discussed.
Candidates should be able to obtain a few key surgical pearls, including methods of providing less painful anesthesia, tricks on how to operate independently without an assistant, methods of obtaining hemostasis in the office surgical setting, and techniques to help them perform procedures such as simple wound closure and nail biopsies.
Lastly, there will be a brief review about optimal referral methods, and proper communication of anatomic sites, to surgical colleagues to allow for better triage and more expeditious care of patients referred for surgery.
