Introduction to surgery: cutting things out and wound closure

29th April 2021


Manchester Foundation Surgical Society’s first skills workshop session!

“Introduction to surgery: cutting things out and wound closure.” Will be presented by Mr Azam Khan an ST8 General Surgeon at Wythenshawe Hospital. The session is aimed at foundation year doctors to go through the basics of removing skin lesions and closure methods. The session will also go through suture materials and the principles of wound closure following surgery. It will then cover the basics on reconstructions for hernia repairs.

This will be a really valuable session for juniors interested in surgery who would like teaching on basic surgical skills.


The webinar will aim to provide practical advice on the theory of removing small lesions from the skin and on the different types of suture materials that can be used and what influences this choice.
