About this event

  • Date and time Fri 9 Dec 2022 from 8:30am to 5:00pm
  • Location Royal Society of Medicine
  • Organised by Urology

Robotic surgery is already well established in extirpative and oncological surgery, but now many centres are developing their techniques for urological robotic reconstructive surgery

During this event, we will explore the robotic techniques available for urological surgery and review the evidence for and against them. While some procedures may be suited to robotics, others could remain better performed by open surgeons. Together, we will evaluate the hotly debated topic of surgeons versus robotic technology.

The second part of the day will be the Winter Short Papers meeting, with the opportunity to win prizes that will support attendance at future meetings. 

Aims of this event include:

  • To introduce participants to urological robotic surgery 
  • To understand how robotics can be used in urological reconstructive surgery
  • To consider future trends in reconstructive urology
