Exclusive Course in Robotic Urology

2019, May 09 - 11

COURSE OBJECTIVES

  1. To give surgeons the opportunity to use anatomical training models to perform robotic radical prostatectomy, robotic partial nephrectomy and robotic nephrectomy
  2. To allow surgeons to attend live surgery cases performed by experts in their regular operating environment
  3. To determine the standards of operative techniques demonstrating robotic radical prostatectomy, robotic partial nephrectomy, robotic radical nephrectomy and robotic cystectomy using lectures and pre-recorded live procedures
