COURSE OBJECTIVES

At the end of the course, participants will be able
  • to identify the specific robotic platform components, settings and features required to safely utilize and operate the robotic surgical platform
  • to understand the proper robotic platform pre-operative setup for upper-GI surgery
  • to define the role of robotic in current esophageal and gastric surgery practice
  • to appreciate the strengths and weaknesses of the evidence base in this emerging field
