The fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery (F.MAS) Training course for General Surgeons, Gynecologists, Pediatric Surgeons and Urologists is for two weeks start every month from the first of the month. World Laparoscopy Hospital provides this opportunities and resources for dedicated surgeon and gynecologists to realize their dreams of becoming skilled laparoscopic surgeon. It's been 12 years since World Laparoscopy Hospital is conducting Fellowship in Laparoscopic surgery program and more than 5,500 surgeons and gynecologists from more than 108 countries has already been awarded Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery. At this centre of excellence laparoscopic institute there is an ample opportunity to learn and do all practical laparoscopic surgeries in one of the most modern laparoscopic wet lab, followed by live exposure of live Laparoscopic procedures in operation theatre with our expert consultants. Admission is on first come first serve basis but if the applicant are more for same month candidate has to take online entrance exam. Laparoscopic Courses of World Laparoscopy Hospital are university recognized courses, endorsed by World Association of Laparoscopic Surgeons and accredited internationally by International Accreditation Organization (IAO), Houston, USA. Small class sizes favor a variety of teaching methods other than large group didactics, such as small group sessions, clinical case discussions, simulations and hands-on laboratory and patient experience. The advanced patient-care facilities at World Laparoscopy Hospital afford students clinical experience in the most current methods and minimal access technologies of treatment.
Course Fee of F.MAS Course:
The course fee is 95,000 Rupees for Indian surgeons and 3,400 USD for overseas surgeon and NRI. Fellowship course is conducted every month starting from 1st of the month for continuous two week. The admission is strictly on first come first serve basis.
Course Curriculum of F.MAS:
The F. MAS Course start from the first of every month and comprises of rigorous "Hands On" training of all essential and advanced laparoscopic procedures. The Course is for two weeks. The first step in F.MAS course is to cover the ESSENTIAL component of Laparoscopy. It is important to remember that F.MAS (Fellowship in Minimal Access Surgery) includes all the ESSENTIAL laparoscopic procedures and "HANDS ON". By concentrating on essential skills, all trainees develop the necessary fundamentals of laparoscopy, which enable them to learn laparoscopic techniques covered in this course.

Teaching Methodology of F.MAS:
The course starts with learning laparoscopic access techniques, Safe Trocar insertion, pneumoperitoneum, suturing and knotting, dissection techniques, tissue retrieval techniques, priciple of baseball diamond concept of port position, principles of safe use of various energy sourses and every essential skills which the surgeon must master to perform complex laparoscopic operations and laparoscopic reconstructions. Laparoscopic surgeons after attending this course, should be able to perform all the taught procedures themselves on their patient, with confidence. This course aims at imparting the necessary theoretical knowledge (supported with videos) along with practice in highly advanced HD laparoscopic skill lab. Each lecture taken by our expert surgeon in the course is complemented with structured exercises under the watchful eyes of the faculty. This ensures that the participants get adequate theoretical knowledge along with correct experience at hand eye camera coordination. This course is totally candidate centered and aims at imparting basic as well as advanced theoretical and practical knowledge in minimal access surgery to the young and experiences surgeons in a structured manner. Emphasis is on day to day practical problems that a Laparoscopic Surgeon faces. This course is a must for anyone who wishes to pursue his/her career in the field of laparoscopic surgery in any discipline. Thus colleagues from the disciplines of surgery, gynecology, urology, pediatric surgery will stand to gain immensely from it. F.MAS laparoscopic training courses takes into account a broad range of students. There is the young resident who grew up in the video age and who possesses an ability to easily translate two dimensional images into three dimensional maneuvers, but at the other end of the spectrum is the established surgeon or ever professors with years of clinical experience who may find that the "feel" of an open technique is lost with laparoscopic maneuvers and who may have difficulties at first adapting to the lack of depth perception in a two dimensional field.When the surgeon is comfortable with the equipment, training in procedures with experimental animals will start.
The porcine model is ideal for a number of practice tasks, such as Cholecystectomy, Appendicectomy, Hernia repair, Common Bile Duct Exploration, D.U Perforation repair, Salpingostomy for Ectopic Pregnancy, followed by Salpingectomy, LAVH, TLH, Bowel resection, Lymphadenectomy, Vagotomy, Varicocelectomy, Nephrectomy, Orchiopexy, Retroperitoneoscopic and Thoracoscopic and other essential as well as advanced procedures. Complete "Hands on Training of Laparoscopic Suturing and Knotting will be given. Before the surgeon can learn the subtleties of a new type of operation, the surgeon is reminded of the basics of the indications and contraindications for a given laparoscopic operation; the pertinent anatomy with regard to both an open technique and to a laparoscopic approach; the appropriate instrumentation; the technical plan, especially regarding trocar position, patient position, and the method to allow adequate exposure using traction and counter traction; the possible optional plans; and the possible associated complications, so the pitfalls can be recognized and avoided. Suture repair and omental patching of a perforated Duodenal ulcer is readily simulated by creating an anterior duodenal perforation with the electrocautery probe. Truncal vagotomy, Posterior truncal vagotomy and Anterior Seromyotomy can then be practiced to learn the definitive acid reducing procedure. Other procedures such as liver biopsy, gastroesophageal reflux maneuvers, extraperitoneal dissection, TEP and TAPP herniorrhaphy and Nephrectomy is also be performed, Gastric Banding can be reproduced in the animal model very nicely along with all colonic surgery. For surgeons to perform laparoscopic operations on human patients, they must practice the procedures and must become thoroughly familiar with the subtleties of each maneuver.
Surgeons & Urologists should be competent to perform following surgery after F.MAS:
Gynaecologists should be competent to perform following surgery after F.MAS:
Surgeons can learn the gynecological procedures also if they are interested.

Certification of F.MAS:
After successful completion of course and qualifying the exam taken by World Association of Laparoscopic surgeons (WALS), Surgeons and Gynecologists will be awarded Fellowship and Diploma in Minimal Access Surgery. The certification ceremony will be followed by buffet lunch at Pacific Hotel in Gurgaon. One topper of the batch among surgeons and one gynecologist will receive a golden trophy from WALS as a reward for their achievement and evidence of merit.
