COURSE OBJECTIVES

  • To cover a broad spectrum of surgical procedures in robotic colorectal surgery
  • To provide indications for robotic surgical treatments and discuss operative complications
  • To highlight technical aspects of robotic surgical interventions through the broadcasting of live procedures
  • To allow real-time discussion between operators and trainee surgeons
  • To provide hands-on sessions to improve skills in robotic surgery through practice on anatomical specimens under expert tutorial
