Description

The Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh and the Association of Robotic and Innovative Surgeons have joined hands together to come up with a series of monthly educational webinars that would encompass all latest happenings in Robotic and other disruptive technologies. The second webinar will cover the clinical experience with various available robotic platforms and their specific user case advantages.

Aims

Robotic surgery has now moved beyond the domains of urology and gynaecology. It was previously perceived that robotic surgery is of utility only for sites where anatomical constraints prevent dissection due to limited vision with the naked eye and cause difficulty in suturing due to paucity of adequate space for the needle holder to pierce the tissue at optimal angles. But soon enough, the surgeons realised that the advantages of using the robot went well beyond operating at confined spaces only. Gradually and steadily other surgical fields have adopted the robot and now general surgery procedures make a major chunk of the total robotic procedures done worldwide. This webinar will comprehensively explore why the surgical robot has become an indispensable part of general surgery practice, the use of robot in India and western world and challenges that lie in generalised adoption of robots in routine general surgery practice.

Learning Objectives

By the end of this webinar, attendees should have an understanding of:

  • Updates about emerging indications of robot in surgical specialties
  • Comparison of technical details of the common robotic surgical procedures being practised by ARIS members and members of RCS Edinburgh. The session will focus on comparison of the data and the results of these procedures of the members of the RCS college and ARIS.
  • The experience of RCSEd and ARIS surgeons for use of newer robots in surgical indications and shall also be able to understand the challenges encountered in implementation of¬†robotic system.
