Advances in Stapled Hemorrhoidopexy: Online Training Module

Now available, Covidien is providing a unique, online training program for colorectal and general surgeons on the usage of stapled hemorrhoidpexy.  You may view the activity at any time by visiting

Course Overview:
Studies have confirmed that stapled hemorrhoidopexy provides less postoperative pain when compared with conventional techniques, with no increase in morbidity.  The procedure is reproducible; different operators can achieve comparable outcomes as long as they follow the underlying principles and have a minimum of experience.

This online training program provides didactic lectures, surgical videos and a training quiz to gauge your level of understanding of the material.

Target Audience: 

This online program is designed to meet the educational needs of practicing colorectal and general surgeons with extensive specialty-level knowledge of anorectal anatomy. Hemorrhoidopexy is most safely performed by well-trained colorectal and general surgeons who have incorporated this aspect of surgery into their regular clinical practice.

Learning Objectives: 

At the completion of this program the participant will be able to:

•         Describe indications, contraindications, and surgical guidelines associated with stapled hemorrhoidopexy
•         Discuss equipment and instrumentation for stapled hemorrhoidopexy; specifically the Covidien EEA™ Hemorrhoid and Prolapse Stapler Set with DST™ Series Technology
•         Describe the key steps and criteria for safe and effective outcomes of stapled hemorrhoidopexy
