d2 gastrectomy course
SATURDAY MARCH 5, 2022 | 7:00 am - 4:00 pm
Guest Faculty: Hyoung-Il Kim , MD, Yonsei University; Takahiro Kinoshita, MD, National Cancer Center East; and Richard Van Hillegersberg, MD, UMC Utrecht
General Surgeons, Surgical Oncologists and Surgical Trainees, who are wanting to expand practice to include oncologic robotic gastrectomy and evidence-based D2 lymph node dissection, will learn from esteemed international faculty members. In addition to didactic lectures, a surgical cadaver lab will be offered for participating surgeons using the current Intuitive Surgical DaVinci Robotic Surgical Platform (Xi system). Each lab will be limited to three persons per lab in order to maximize each participants hands-on time.
In addition to being the FIRST robotic gastrectomy program to be held in the United States, this will be the first robotic gastrectomy program to use peer-based coaching to facilitate learning and improve collaboration amongst international surgeons. We hope you will join us for this exciting program with an overall goal to improve gastric cancer care globally.
