Presented in cooperation with the AAGL Special Interest Group on Robotics
This course has been approved for ABOG Maintenance of Certification (MOC) Part IV
This course is designed for robotic surgeons who want to achieve a skill set beyond basic hysterectomy. Each participant will be trained by highly experienced gynecologic robotic surgeons in both simulation and cadaveric dissection. The robotic platform will be used for advanced retroperitoneal dissection, management of surgical complications and tissue extraction techniques to prepare the surgeon for more complex cases. Over the course of this activity, participants will develop a proficiency with retroperitoneal anatomy and robotic surgical technique. Both the da Vinci and TransEnterix robotic platforms will be available.
At the conclusion of this course, the clinician will be able to: 1) Use the robotic platform for retroperitoneal dissection to optimize efficiency and success in complex gynecologic cases; 2) manage surgical complications robotically to minimize conversion; and 3) employ the most up-to-date techniques in tissue extraction.
