Animal Lab | Mary Beth Privitera

Join us for a hands-on animal lab where we will be guided through laparoscopic cholecystectomy and gastric sleeve procedures.  Through experiential learning—explore anatomy, physiology and surgical techniques. Don gloves and show off your surgical skill.  As we are all aware, during the development process, studies are required to be performed on each of the new product concepts with a multiphase experimental plan—from concept to final product validation.

What better way to develop empathy for our surgeons and discover their challenges—than to experience it firsthand.  Join us for this unique opportunity to have the first IDSA lab wherein our members will be trained for appropriate, animal lab protocol and procedures.  Participants can learn how to set up a generative design lab with background on anatomical model selection, surgical processes, anatomy and surgical skills.
