Kochi | Eminent American and Indian Surgeons specialising in ‘Minimal Access Surgery’ will converge  here  at Amrita Institute Medical Sciences on September 12 and 13 to share the best practices in the emerging field of robotic surgery.
The two-day Robotic Surgeons Meet, aimed to encourage surgeons to widen their expertise in the field of robotic surgery, will serve as a platform for nearly a 100 surgeons engaged in robotic surgery in India to present their work, exchange views, and learn from each other.
Robotic surgery assures a healthier post-operative life, causing minimal loss of blood, quicker healing of wounds and shorter hospital stays for those suffering from life threatening conditions in digestive, respiratory, urinary, reproductive and other vital body systems, a release said here today
Eminent robotic surgeons from America slated to speak at the conference include Dr. Mario Leitao, Jr., Director, Minimal Access and Robotic Surgery Program, Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, and Dr. Mahendra Bhandari, a noted kidney transplant surgeon and Director, Robotic Surgery Research and Education at Henry Ford Hospital, Detroit, it said.
‘Robotic surgery has a great value in cancer surgery as radical cancer surgery is possible through small holes and facilitates quick recovery of the patient,’ said Dr Mahendra Bhandari who also serves as the CEO, Vattikuti Foundation, that founded the Urology Institute at Henry Ford Hospital.
