Tips and Tricks of Robotics in Plastic Surgery Fri, Oct 27 8:00-9:30 a.m. CDT

This panel discussion will highlight the use of robotics in a variety of procedures including mastectomy; robotic omentum flap and rectus harvests; DIEPS and Vram procedures as well as use of robotics in head and neck reconstruction.

This session is designed to illuminate the expanding role of robotics in the field of plastic surgery. It will provide attendees with a comprehensive understanding of how minimal-incision reconstructive procedures, typically performed via traditional open approach, can now be accomplished through robotic surgery. Participants will gain a thorough knowledge of the risks associated with robotic surgery and delve into a cost/benefit analysis, encouraging a nuanced understanding of this innovative surgical approach. By exploring the subtleties of robotic surgery, healthcare professionals will learn to leverage technology effectively, thus enhancing surgical outcomes and patient experience.

At the end of this activity, participants will be able to:

1.     Recognize the advantages and disadvantages of robotics is plastic surgery. 2.     Understand robotic techniques applied to plastic surgery. 3.     Discuss future directions and applications for robotics in plastic surgery.
