We have invited faculties; Dr. Sathyaki P Nambala, Dr. Chirag Doshi and Dr. Rajesh M Ramankutty. The distinguished faculties will be actively involved in all aspects of the program from lectures to group discussions.

The program is designed to be highly interactive by incorporating edited videos of surgery to address the core concepts of MICS CABG. This will be supported by didactic lectures and informal discussion.

Since the intention for this program is purely academic and to make this program highly interactive and informative, we have decided to limit the number of delegates to only 100 and registration will be done on a first-come, first-served basis. So please register early. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you at Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences for this event.

2nd International Robotic Surgery Workshop & Master Class

The Department of Gynecologic Oncology, Amrita Institute of Medical Sciences, a pioneering center for Robotic Gynecologic Surgery in India, welcomes you for the 2nd International Robotic Surgery Workshop and Master class in Pelvic Anatomy on 7th and 8th October 2017.

Minimal access surgery is now the standard of care for most benign gynecologic procedures, endometrial cancer and cervical cancer. This has led to the improvement in patient care and satisfaction. Robotic surgery is the latest minimally invasive surgical tool available that helps surgeons to do complicated surgeries with ease.

We need to constantly update ourselves about the recent advances and at the same time our foundation, for which our knowledge of anatomy needs to be strong. This programme is a sincere effort dedicated to deliver the most recent concepts and teachings in minimally invasive surgery on one hand while reconnecting with pelvic and retroperitoneal anatomy on the other hand. We have renowned national and international faculty coming together to share their experiences during this meeting.
