Research Article: Laparoscopic Surgery Training in Latin America

The objective of this research is to evaluate the efficiency of the Laparoscopic Surgery Basic Training Program in the development of cognitive and motor skills.

CEPCEA has developed a 5-day teaching system based on Problem-Based Learning (PBL) with a focus on manual skills involving inanimate objects, biological tissues, and human anatomy. This training combines the best practices from different continents, incorporating elements from American FLS (Fundamentals of Laparoscopic Surgery), European Endotrainer, and Japanese KAIZEN approaches. To assess the program's effectiveness, a pretest and posttest were administered to the entire cohort of surgeons who underwent training from January to December 2016. The tests evaluated both time-based practical skills and theoretical knowledge with 20 questions, each carrying a value of 1 point for a correct response. Statistical analysis was conducted using SPSS version 21.

The study aims to provide insights into the impact of the Laparoscopic Surgery Basic Training Program on the development of surgical skills, both cognitive and motor, as well as to determine the program's overall effectiveness. This research is valuable for assessing the benefits of the training program in improving the capabilities of surgeons in the field of laparoscopic surgery.

CEPCEA Hospital Project

We present our project in development, the CEPCEA Hospital. This video offers a detailed vision of our ambitious initiative: the creation of a cutting-edge care center for laparoscopic surgery, which will become a reference for all of Latin America and will be located in Piura. Our vision is to establish a hospital recognized for its excellence in patient care and for leading the development of new technologies in laparoscopic surgery. Join us on this journey into the future of laparoscopic surgery.
