Dr Eugene Lin will be conducting a Laparoscopy Workshop at the Academia@SGH on 11 Sep 2016. Please click here for a brochure
Laparoscopy is a minimally-invasive approach to the abdomen for organ biopsy, diagnostic techniques and surgical procedures.
This course includes lectures on the procedures being performed in the wetlab, followed by a hands-on session using cadaver to practice the basic laparoscopic skills.
Participants will learn basic approach and tissue manipulation.
Laparoscopic techniques include tissue biopsy (liver, pancreas and kidney) and ovariectomy.
This course is intended for those who have minimal or no experience with laparoscopy.
Speaker: Dr Eugene Lin
Dr Eugene Lin is the founder and medical director of The Animal Ark Veterinary Group. He received training in interventional and minimally-invasive surgeries in the united States and United Kingdom.
Eugene is the first veterinarian in Singapore to incorporate minimally-invasive techniques into routine surgeries.
Advancing into the field of Interventional Radiology and Endoscopy (IR/IE), utilising multiple imaging modalities, Eugene now performs minimally invasive procedures for diagnostic and therapeutic purposes such as laparoscopic biopsies, stent placements and subcutaneous ureteral bypass (SUB).
IR is often combined with endosocopy known as Interventional Endoscopy (IE), to perform procedures such as tracheoscopy, bronchoscopy, urethroscopy and gastroduodenoscopy.
He is also a contributor to the Veterinary Interventional Radiology and Interventional Endoscopy Society (VIRES) and a member of the Veterinary Endoscopy Society (VES).
Eugene has been conducting seminars and workshops on the applications of endoscopy both locally and internationally, namely in Malaysia, Indonesia, Taiwan and Korea.
