Exclusive Course in Robotic Urology

Full immersion robotic urologic surgery

Surgical progress combined with robotic assistance and conventional laparoscopy have gradually taken off and led to enhanced precision surgery. This robotic urologic course and all urological procedures using these robot-assisted techniques make up IRCAD training programs in urological surgery.

Considering the development of robotic surgery, the IRCAD urology incorporated a purely robotic course with theoretical sessions, live broadcasts and training workshops on anatomical specimens using the surgical robotic systems.
