Pediatric Urology Robotic Mini-Fellowship-September 2022

Chicago, IL US
September 19, 2022 to September 23, 2022
This mini-fellowship provides week-long training to visiting surgeons, who then take the skills they learn to their patients for better health outcomes. Pediatric patients need optimal surgical care for complex and basic surgeries. Robotic surgeries enable optimal results because they are conducted minimally invasively and often with shorter lengths of stay and recovery times. Robotic surgery is still in its infancy, so we likely need a decade of more data collection to fully determine its efficacy. This mini-fellowship enables the dissemination of this knowledge and expertise globally. This activity provides surgeons with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully perform pediatric urology robotic surgery to produce better healthcare outcomes for children.

Target Audience

This activity is designed for physicians specializing in pediatric urology, pediatric surgery, pediatric urologic surgery, and urologic surgery.

Learning Objectives

After this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Perform a robotic surgery safely and independently;
  • Discuss several strategies to decrease the time performing robotic surgery;
  • Outline several methods to manage complications during robotic surgery;
  • Compare the healthcare outcomes from robotic surgery to other surgical methods using the metrics recovery time, incisions, length of stay, and patient-reported quality of life after surgery.
