About this Unit
This is an alternate unit in the Graduate Diploma in Advanced Gynaecological Surgery and Year 1 of the Master of Surgery (Advanced Gynaecological Surgery) course. A thorough understanding of the range of power modalities available when performing gynaecological surgery is a key fundamental concept to gynaecologists performing such surgery. Students undertaking this unit are expected to have a working knowledge on power modalities at commencement. This unit will extend their knowledge in theoretical and practical aspects. Students will explore the physics behind various power modalities, its physiological effect on human tissue and potential complications related to each power modality. Students will review and compare the current range of commercially available power modalities, assisting them to be competent with its use in a clinical setting and tailoring their use dependent on the type of surgery and pathology. By enrolling in this unit, the student will be expected to produce a detailed discussion on various aspects of power modalities, exploring the nuances of surgical planning and techniques. This will extend the student’s knowledge so they can safely and effectively use various power modalities in gynaecological surgery.
