UPPER GI ROBOTIC SURGERY

Upper GI Robotic Surgery Advanced Course

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  1. To identify the specific robotic platform components, settings, and features required to safely use and operate the robotic surgical platform
  2. To understand the proper robotic platform in the preoperative set-up for upper GI surgery
  3. To understand and replicate the critical surgical steps for the safe and effective use of the robotic platform in upper GI surgery
  4. To define the role of the robot in the current esophageal and gastric surgery practice
  5. To appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of this emerging field

EDUCATIONAL METHODS

  • Lectures with interactive discussions between participants and Faculty members
  • Interactive sessions with operating surgeons during live surgery
  • Video-based discussion sessions with Q&A
  • Robotic surgery training and practice on simulators and anatomical specimens including the latest generation of robotic systems

INTERNATIONAL FACULTY PANEL

I. Broeders NL - Y.K. Chao TW - B. Dallemagne BE - H. Fuchs DE - W.J. Hyung KR - S. Perretta IT - J.P. Ruurda NL - R. Van Hillegersberg NL
