Improving Care Through Quality and Safety

As medicine is constantly evolving and changing, we, as obstetrician gynecologists, strive to provide the best care for our patients through enhancing our knowledge of the latest medical issues and recommendations. What this means to us is a focus on issues that we find to be close to our hearts: improving patient outcomes through a patient-centered approach that balances both innovation and technology, as well as quality and education.

The 57th Annual Meeting of the SGA will offer high-quality and evidence-based presentations and provide the attendees an opportunity to interact with nationally renowned and leading experts in their fields on topics applicable to the practicing physician. Innovative gynecologic surgical techniques such as vaginal natural orifice transluminal endoscopic surgery and advancements in robotic surgery will be presented. Prevention and management strategies in postoperative wound healing and surgical site infections will also be reviewed. A discussion of the pelvic floor and its involvement with musculoskeletal and neurologic pelvic pain along with education on management of menopause, libido, and sexual health will be provided. Topics in obstetrics will include a discussion of the placenta accreta spectrum along with trauma in pregnancy. Awareness around surgical ergonomics and its impact in obstetrics and gynecology will be highlighted. We will also discuss the future of our specialty and where it is going and review the impact of social media and personal branding. We truly hope you will join us for what will surely be an exceptional meeting.
