Dr. Maene and Dr. Bafort travel the world to take additional surgery courses in various countries. They have already visited the IRCAD Laparoscopic Training Center in Strasbourg, France several times together. There they followed various laparoscopy courses under the watchful eye of Professor Arnaud Wattiez.
They also visit Prof. Wattiez every year in February in Dubai, where his annual ‘Endo Dubai’ conference on Endometriosis takes place. An extremely fascinating conference where world authorities in the surgical treatment of endometriosis come to give lectures.
In June 2022, they crossed the Atlantic Ocean to the United States of America to visit Prof. Dr. Paya Pasic in his operating room in Louisville, Kentucky. Prof Pasic specializes in minimally invasive surgery (laparoscopy) for extremely obese people with BMIs over 60. As a result, we no longer shy away from also performing minimally invasive surgery on heavier patients to spare them an open procedure.
Dr. Maene went to Krakow in Poland in May 2023 to give a presentation at the EBCOG conference (European Board & College of Obstetrics and Gynecology). There she presented the new robot UPS technology.
Dr. Maene and Dr. Bafort recently visited The Princess Grace Hospital in London twice to see Dr. Denis Tsepov at work, who specializes in robotic procedures for removing endometriosis.
“This way we can continue to update our skills and learn new techniques to take even better care of our patients.”
