Global Robotic Surgery Symposium presents a unique learning experience
Miami :When accomplished robotic surgeons meet to share their ideas, innovations and procedures away from their busy days at operation theatres, after care wards, or consulting patients it can be the best time to learn and exchange ideas.
Nearly a hundred of them found time to meet for the "Humans on the Cutting Edge of Robotic Surgery" symposium in late November at Miami. For them it was also an opportunity to felicitate global peers who had won accolades at the KS International Innovation Award 2022, a robotic surgery video competition which had started in India in for urologists and this year became a multi-disciplinary global competition.
