Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Robotics is a surgical tool used to maximize visualization and dexterity in minimally invasive surgery. Since 2005, its use in gynecology has expanded, and now a significant proportion of hysterectomies for fibroids, endometriosis, pelvic masses, cervical cancers, and uterine cancers are performed using robotic technology. Advantages include less pain, a shorter hospital stay, better patient satisfaction, lower risk of complications, and a shorter recovery time.

Learning Objectives:
1. Introduce technology used in robotic surgery.
2. Learn how robotics are used in gynecologic surgery.
3. Learn the pros and cons of robotic surgery in gynecology.
