How to Perform a Surgical Ellipse: Preparation
This short video is taken from a recent webinar Dr Jonny Levy held for the Skin Cancer Surgery course alumni. The experienced skin cancer doctor and course presenter explains step by step how to prepare for a surgical ellipse – from how to position the patient when planning the procedure to how to inject the anaesthetic and make the cut.
The program includes theory and surgical practical sessions on:
- Surgical anatomy and skin lines
- Local anaesthetic blocks
- Large elliptical excisions
- Advanced suturing techniques
- Rotation flaps
- Advancement flaps
- Full thickness grafts
- Dog ear repairs
- Wound care and various dressings
Our team of industry leaders and experienced skin cancer doctors will guide you in your learning and skills practice throughout the weekend and beyond. Upon completion of the course, you will receive unlimited access to additional online learning resources and alumni webinars with course revisions, case discussions and Q&A with the instructors.
Surgery is still considered the most effective and definitive skin cancer treatment. The Professional Certificate of Skin Cancer Surgery is ideal for acquiring and honing various surgical techniques. In a highly practical program, you will learn how to perform large elliptical excisions and different types of flaps and grafts which will allow you to manage more complex skin cancer cases in your practice. This course is the first part of the three-part Professional Diploma of Skin Cancer Surgery.
