Discuss ways to reduce the learning curve and operative times for robotic urologic oncologic surgery.
Explain how to improve trifecta outcomes.
Facilitate the recognition and avoidance of complications during robotic urologic oncologic surgery.
Explain the nuances of the surgical anatomy of the prostate and kidney
The course was designed to help surgeons in their time of most extreme need. It is presented by the world’s most experienced faculty who have stored video of their most extreme scenarios during robotic surgery The course is video-based and will focus on urologic oncology. It will show video footage of the most difficult anatomical and technical challenges that pushed the world’s most experienced robotic surgeons to their limits. We will discuss both single-port and multi-port approaches. This extreme video course outlines management of challenging scenarios, complications, observation and management of never before seen anatomy, surgical adaptation and improvisation. Topics include cancer of the prostate, kidney, penis and testicles. Scenarios presented include cases that were aborted due to challenging anatomy, rectal injury, obturator injury, pudendal artery management, extremely obese patient, salvage surgery, massive prostates, renal vascular injury and excessive bleeding during surgery. These are all scenarios that most robotic surgeons will face at some point in their practice. In this course you will learn how the experts managed these issues and survived. Course disclaimer: this course is not for the faint of heart, and the scenarios presented in this course should be avoided at all costs.
