AAGL 2015 Live Telesurgery – “Endometrial Cancer with the Xi Robot” with John F. Boggess, M.D.
COURSE DESCRIPTION: This case provides a systematic approach to surgical treating and staging endometrial cancer. Para aortic node dissection, hysterectomy and pelvic node dissection will be demonstrated with a focus on anatomic boundaries and a step wise approach in order to maximize efficiency and minimize complications. In addition, the DaVinci Xi surgical platform will be used in order to highlight the current advantages and advancements of the latest robotic surgical platform.
LEARNING OBJECTIVES: At the conclusion of this course, the participant will be able to: 1) Identify the anatomic boundaries of pelvic and para-aortic node dissection; 2) describe a systematic approach to perform nodal dissection and hysterectomy; and 3) explain an approach for using the Xi robotic platform for treating endometrial cancer.
