Course Description: 
Putting the “M” back in MFM was a necessary national campaign to address the rising maternal morbidity and mortality rate.  As MFM’s expand their inpatient presence and are tasked with coordinating and providing care for the expanding complexities encountered in modern day obstetrics, surgical innovation is often needed.  Along with the rising cesarean section rate, increasing rates of maternal obesity and other co-morbidities are being encountered by MFMs and presenting new challenges to obstetric surgery. This course will provide attendees practical, evidenced based approaches to obstetric surgery in the surgically complex patient and will allow for a forum in which to learn from national experts.

Learning Objectives:
  • Review an evidence-based approach to cervical cerclage including abdominal cerclage
  • Describe techniques to be used in obese patients for prenatal diagnosis, diverse needle procedures, and cesarean. delivery
  • Detail both standard and innovative surgical approaches for the management of postpartum hemorrhage
  • Develop the necessary background and knowledge to make objective choices when evaluating the various surgical approaches to placenta accreta spectrum
