This course is designed to provide fellows with the latest information on robotic-assisted laparoscopic pelvic reconstructive surgery from three experienced robotic surgeons who run programs at major academic centers. The lectures will be focused on relevant anatomy, patient selection, surgical steps, avoiding and managing complications, and the current evidence regarding efficacy of sacrocolpopexy and surgical alternatives as well as some tips on contract negotiation and practice building. The full day hands-on cadaveric lab will allow fellows to practice robotic surgical techniques.
This course will train 32 fellows who are currently in their second or third year of fellowship and who have not attended this course in the past. Each fellow will spend one day in the robotic lab and one day in didactic sessions.
