This seminar will focus on the advantages of robot-assisted general surgery versus traditional open surgery and conventional laparoscopy, as well as future applications of robotics for each surgical discipline. Pioneering experts will discuss advances in the engineering of robotic technology. A combination of educational formats will be utilized to enhance your learning experience including hands-on demonstrations with the da Vinci® surgical system, discussion panels with experts in their respective fields, and case presentations.
At the conclusion of this activity physicians will be able to:
- Demonstrate an understanding of what procedures and conditions in which robot-assisted surgery is recommended
- Provide objective and knowledgeable surgical options to their patients
- Identify how today’s engineering experts and their research are impacting the evolution of robotic capabilities for the future
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the ArMA Essential Areas and Policies of the Arizona Medical Association through the joint sponsorship of John C. Lincoln Health Engineering. John C. Lincoln Health Network is accredited by the Arizona Medical Association to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
