Robotic Bariatric Surgery in Challenging Situations
5th October 2022, 19:00 to 20:00 BST
Robotic Surgery is rapidly making inroads into all surgical subspecialties. The role seems to be more pronounced in areas where Minimal Access Surgery requires high degree of skills or where it is not popular due to limitations of the current technology. Like absence of articulating instruments, difficulty in suturing, requirement of multiple instrument control etc. While bariatric surgery is commonly done by laparoscopy, some advanced and complicated situations may be better handled by Robotic Surgery. This webinar addresses three such situations.
This webinar will include basics of the procedure, literature evidence and video clips to highlight the advantages of robotic surgery during challenging situations in bariatric surgery.
By the end of this webinar, attendees should have an understanding of:
- What is robotic bariatric surgery
- Situations where robotic surgery is helpful
- Technical tips of the surgery
- Evidence based discussion of benefits.
