As a result of this educational activity, webcast participants will be able to: DESCRIBE applications of robotic surgery as it relates to inguinal hernia repair and cholecystectomy; DISCUSS importance of including robotic surgery training as it relates to resident and fellowship training; DISCUSS the role of robotics in foregut, bariatric, and ventral hernia repair; and EXPLAIN potential advantages and disadvantages of robotics in general surgery.

You’ll also learn about the following:

  • What the surgical robot actually does
  • General surgical applications of robotics
  • Starting a robotic program in your hospital
  • Equipment costs
  • Insurance coverage
  • Credentialing
  • How to select a surgeon to do your inguinal herniorrhaphy
  • Future applications of robotics in general surgery
  • Converting robotic to open surgical procedures
  • Patient variables in technique selection
