A two-day-long workshop on enhanced endoscopy training was organized at VGM hospital in the city.
Addressing the media, chairman of VGM hospital, Dr VG Mohan Prasad said that about 40 types of surgeries can be performed using endoscopy.
"Reputed international and national faculty members performed the complex surgeries, which would not only benefit patients, but also helped as a training guide for therapeutic endoscopists. There was no doubt in the fact that the live transmission will offer an excellent opportunity for young doctors to get hands-on training in different endoscopy procedures," he said.
He also added that it will offer the general public an opportunity to get an overview and become aware about endoscopic procedures.
