Pediatric Urology Mini-Fellowship - September 2017

Chicago, IL US
September 18, 2017 to September 22, 2017
The Pediatric Urology Mini-Fellowship course provides week-long training to visiting surgeons who bring skills learned to their patient populations for better health outcomes. Pediatric patients are in need of optimal surgical care for complex and basic surgeries. Robotic surgeries enable optimal outcomes given they are conducted minimally invasively and often with shorter length of stay, quicker recovery times. Given robotic surgery is still in its infancy, we likely need a decade of more data to determine full outcomes. This mini-fellowship course enables the dissemination of this knowledge and expertise globally. The goal of this activity is to provide surgeons with the knowledge and skills necessary to successfully perform pediatric urology robotic surgery to surgeons in order to produce better health care outcomes for children.

Target Audience

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

Learning Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be able to:

  • Perform a robotic surgery safely and independently;
  • Discuss several strategies to decrease 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.
