The use of robotic surgery in endometriosis diagnoses and treatment provides surgeons an additional tool for endometriosis surgery, particularly deeply infiltrating disease. The use of robotics in endometriosis surgery offers the advantage of 3D visualization, utilization of wristed instruments, ergonomics and tremor filtration. The robotic platform also allows for the multidisciplinary approach to disease treatment in cases where bowel and bladder endometriosis may be present. In early cases of endometriosis, the use of the fluorescence imaging vision technology can help aid in the visualization and detection of endometriosis to help guide surgical resection.
Utilizing a strong practice focus, this course will include anatomical, clinical, and surgical oriented lectures, anatomical dissection with hands-on supervision and clinical case discussions to consolidate learning objectives. The face-to-face relationship between the faculty and participants makes this course an important technical experience for all specialists who want to improve their abilities to treat endometriosis and better address surgical resection of deeply infiltrating disease.
- Describe multi-port and single port techniques for benign gynecological surgery.
- Examine and analyze the minimally invasive surgical techniques and methodology behind endometriosis surgery.
- Discuss the use of the robotic surgical system for the surgical treatment of deeply infiltrating endometriosis.
- Utilize component separation techniques and fluorescence imaging vision technology to help identify and resect early stages of endometriosis.
