Recording: How to optimise resources with the most advanced surgical robotic platforms?

More than 20 years after the introduction of the first Intuitive surgical robot, robotic surgery has been revolutionized by the new platforms entering clinical practice.

Surgeons and hospitals can choose different platforms, which potentially gives them more flexibility, more negotiation power, and more possibility to address specific surgical needs.

However, they must also face new challenges.

Whether operating skills are transferrable across different platforms remains an open question. Therefore, experienced robotic users need to be trained in using the new platforms, while novices have to choose which platform to start from. Overall, staff training can become more time consuming and costly.

Workflow and surgical protocol standardization challenges need to be addressed to ensure consistent quality across all procedures. Hospital administrations might have to deal with the impact of equipment and maintenance costs over time

In this recording, key opinion leaders will present the most recent scientific evidence on how to optimize resources with the most advanced surgical robotic platforms.
