Robotic surgery is still the most innovative and effective alternative to surgery performed with classical technique.
The Course is aimed at surgeons who have already gained experience in using this technology. Consequently, the training project has the objectives of:
- Deepen the basic technological knowledge, including the problems related to the organization of the operating room, the medical and paramedical staff
- Improve the manual skills to use the robot
- analyze possible complications and discuss the related treatments.
At the end of the course, the participant surgeon will have increased the technical capacity in the use of robotic machine for the surgical treatment of:
Reconstruction of pelvic floor defects
Simple and radical hysterectomy
