6th Annual Pediatric Robotic Urology - Update and Live Case Demonstration
The use of robotic technology in Pediatric Urology has been steadily evolving since its early adaptation in 2000. It is now a part of standard armamentarium in Adult Urology, and Pediatric Urology is following the trend. This educational initiative is intended to educate and transfer the techniques and technologies of the robotic system to Pediatric Urology fellows and practicing Pediatric Urologists for effective and safe use in clinical practice settings.
The target audience includes fellows and practicing physicians specializing in pediatric urology, pediatric surgery, pediatric urologic surgery, and urologic surgery.
At the conclusion of this course, attendees should be able to:
- Describe the use and focused patient selection process for Pediatric Robotic Urological surgery;
- List the technical details and tips and tricks of Pediatric Robotic Urological surgery;
- Integrate the newer Pediatric Urological applications for experienced robotic surgeons;
- Identify the safe application of technology and avoid complications;
- Describe the refinements in surgical technology and newer advances.
