Overview Only 20 percent of gynecology physicians have started to use robotic surgery in gynecology. Hysterectomies are one of the most common major surgical procedures in the United States and it is expected to be the major growth area for robotic surgery. This course will address gaps that will help shorten the learning curve and improve overall operating room efficiency related to robotic gynecologic surgery. All aspects of OR set-up, patient positioning and anesthesia management will be discussed as well as indications and outcomes in gynecology and gynecologic oncology. An emphasis will be placed on surgical techniques through video demonstration and live broadcasted surgeries for hysterectomy, bso, cystectomy, myomectomy, and adnexal mass. There will be several presentations and a breakout session for different people to practice hands-on techniques in the dry lab of the clinical skills center. Participants will be expected to acknowledge the information learned from the activity and inform us by utilizing an evaluation measuring a change in competence.
