Accelerating the Progress Curve - ROBO-600

Robotic-Assisted Minimally Invasive Surgery


Day 1, Sunday, November 11, 2018


7:00 am – 11:00 am


Room: 115


Salvatore T.G. Alletti, Devin M. Garza






Faculty: Richard W. Farnam, Mario M. Leitao, Gaby N. Moawad, Michael T. Breen, Stephanie Ricci, Arleen H. Song

Presented in cooperation with the AAGL Special Interest Group on Robotics


This didactic course is designed to address the common and predictable concerns of surgeons of various skill levels in their unique “PROGRESS curve” on both the da Vinci robotic platform and the TransEnterix; a newly FDA approved robotic platform. The faculty selected to participate in this course are highly experienced and exceptionally qualified to teach best practices and reproducible techniques in order to facilitate improving patient outcomes for minimally invasive gynecologic surgeries on robotic platforms. This course will rely heavily on faculty surgery videos to share their systematic approach when managing complex cases. Key topics will include OR efficiency, tissue extraction, hysterectomy and myomectomy on both the da Vinci and TransEnterix robotic platforms.

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Recognize and implement safe, reproducible best practice approach to maximizing optimal patient outcomes during the learning curve on the robotic platform 2) distinguish and compare existing robotic systems 3) assess systematic approach to common complex gynecologic surgeries; and 4) formulate a strategic plan to improve OR efficiency.
