Robotic Gynecologic Surgery: Patient Safety and Advanced Techniques – Harvard Medical School

September 24, 2016 - September 25, 2016


2016 marks the decennial of the Center for Robotic Surgery at Brigham and Women’s hospital and underlines the early institutional commitment to the safe development of this emerging surgical technique.

This September, the Brigham and Women’s faculty invites you to join them in Boston’s beautiful Back Bay for Harvard Medical School’s third annual technical update for intermediate and advanced robotic gynecologic surgeons. “Robotic Gynecologic Surgery: Patient Safety and Advanced Techniques” has been highly rated by attendees in its 2014 and 2015 editions. A faculty of Harvard robotic surgery pioneers, all at the forefront of their respective subspecialties, will be joined by internationally recognized authorities in the field to share protocols, techniques, knowledge and vision with a select group of colleague attendees in an exceptionally interactive, yet compact, course format.

This year this event will be joined by guest faculty Mario Leitao, Catherine Matthews and Michael Pitter, world-renowned pioneers of the disciplines of robotic gynecologic oncology, urogynecology, and benign gynecology respectively, who will enrich and diversify every aspect of the course with the experience they bring from decades of combined experience.

Although no aspect of our specialty will be left uncovered, the 2016 agenda will again cover these main themes:

– Safe and effective practices for hysterectomy, myomectomy, endometriosis resection and sacrocolpopexy, including specific lectures on challenging scenarios;
– Advanced anatomy and energy skills;
– Credentialing, training, and simulation;
– Safe and effective perioperative management;
– New techniques and technology, with emphasis on Xi technology and Single-Site.

Target Audience

This course is targeted to specialty physicians. This course may also be of interest to physicians who practice in Surgery, Obstetrics and Gynecology.
