Robotic Gynaecology Course

Course Date:

20th to 21st August 2023

Course Curator

Dr. Manjula Anagani

Background & Course Introduction

  • Robotic surgery has become the cornerstone for many gynecological procedures including Hysterectomies and
  • Laparoscopic surgery stands on the shoulders of open surgery and robotic surgery stands on the shoulders of laparoscopic surgery.
  • It is a common belief that to be a good robotic surgeon we need to learn and unlearn laparoscopic skills. There is a paucity of courses delving into this aspect of robotic surgery, namely,” back to the basics.

Aims & Objectives

  • Opportunity to interact one-to-one with Faculty during the course and personalized attention during hands-on and in the wet lab
  • An unprecedented opportunity to have hands-on experience on the simulator
  • Didactic talks focusing on technical aspects of basic and advanced robotic surgery

What should participants expect at the end of the course?

  • Understand the nuances of various robotic platforms with hands-on training on simulators
  • Understand the port positioning and role of the bedside surgeon
  • Understand troubleshooting and management of such situations
  • Understand and learn the basic steps of common robotic surgeries through demonstrations and simulator training

Hands-on access to SimNow skills simulator and 4th gen. robotic system
