Testimonials

I wanted to thank you for the days spent in Cincinnati. It was a spectacular and very high-level event. I wanted to recommend a great friend that will go to the Academy now in the course of November. A great physician and pioneer in Urogynecology in his country...I have talked to him about the wonderful experience that is going to be there with all of you.

I want to give my gratitude and a big hello to Mickey Karram and Dr. Walters, to thank all of you for all the dedication they had and thank you for this great work of education with the Academy.

Good morning Mr Karram. I am a Urogynaecologist (trained in the UK but working in Australia). I quite enjoy watching your videos in the Academy of Pelvic Surgery and I am pleased to report that yesterday I did my first Uterosacral ligament suspension. I find your videos are extremely useful for my practice. Thanks again.

I hope that more will develop another day in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The last coordinated by Dr. Sarsotti was spotless and the presentations of Drs Mark Walters and Mickey Karram very important and illustrative

Thank you so much for offering me the opportunity to come to the IAPS courses! I cannot tell you how helpful they have been in providing me with confidence and knowledge in the operating room. I look forward to implementing all of the tips and tricks I learned from yourself and the wonderful faculty you had at the courses. They were, by far, the best and most useful educational conferences I have ever attended

I just want to tell you that the conference was a huge success. Everything went out of the extraordinary. I was impressed with the faculty and the courses. It was perfect!! I loved it, and I think its the best course so far I have taken in my life. I already sent an email to my residency program so the residents join the society.

I just wanted to express my sincere gratitude and appreciation for the opportunity and experience.

The Evaluation and Management of Female Incontinence course I attended in Cincinnati was one of the best learning experience I have had. The faculty were exceptional, their passion and skill in teaching was very apparent. The structure and content of the course was ideal, Incorporating didactics, live surgeries, live patient urodynamic testing, cadaver lab, and video clips just made it all come full circle. The one on one in the cadaver lab with each faculty member, walking you through the procedure was amazing. I came back and was able to do a sling with ease and comfort. I am evaluating my patients for incontinence in a new way, with the information I gained. I have a much better idea about urodynamic testing indication, and technique. We have been able to work with a company that came to us onsite to do our urodynamics, this is through our discussions with people we met at the conference.

I attended the 3 day course in February 2012, "Evaluation and Management of female Urinary Incontinence." I just wanted to thank you for allowing me the opportunity to take part in the course. I have to say, it was by far the most useful course I have ever attended. The course gave me the tooks to go back home, start urodynamic testing on my patients and offer appropriate incontinence procedures on my patients that were already booked for prolapse surgery!

I have now seen those patients back for their post op checks. I strongly feel that I was able to optimize the care of my patients- and that is what continuing education is really about. Thanks to Cheryl, Dr. Walters, Dr. Karram, and the group. Your system of education has been an unparalleled experience that has given me the confidence to do what I always wanted to, but had trouble finding adequate training after Residency. I have heard Dr. Walters and Dr. Karram speak before and was so impressed by their sincerity and interest in teaching. This is what brought me to this course in the first place. My respect for them has only increased after working with them in the cadaver lab. Thank you all for such a career-changing experience!

Thank you serving as faculty for the IAPS Fellow's course this past week. I am very grateful to have been a part of such an incredible course. I really enjoyed the lectures, case presentations, and especially the debate on Friday morning. I have told Dr. Richter and Dr. Varner how wonderful the course was, and they were excited to hear about the content and curriculum.
 Thank you again for your time and dedication to the course. It was a very special learning opportunity.
