Great Debate: Robotics - Why are We Performing Robotic Cholecystectomy?
This session discusses the merits of robotic cholecystectomy and experts will debate two controversial topics. We will debate the utility of Firefly immunofluorescence imaging compared to traditional intra-operative cholangiogram, as well as the cost associated with using the robotic platform versus the traditional laparoscopic approach. This session is geared towards residents, fellows, surgeons, and advanced practitioners who already perform or are considering adopting the use of robotics into their practice.
- Appraise the value of the robotic platform for cholecystectomy, both in patient outcomes and cost.
- Employ new strategies for patient selection regarding the use of the robotic technology in cholecystectomy.
- Analyze cost data across robotic-assisted and traditional laparoscopic techniques.
