fifth A N N U A L World Robotic Urology Symposium April 12 – 14, 2010 –

Educational Objectives
Upon conclusion of this course, participants will be able to:
• Examine the surgical techniques and methodology behind complex robotic urologic cancer surgeries such as prostatectomy,
cystectomy and partial nephrectomy
• Analyze the robotic techniques unique to the surgical management of bladder, kidney and prostate cancer
• Discuss the key complications and outline the intra-operative and post-operative management related to robotic surgery
procedures using video-based learning and discussion
• Apply the laparoscopic and robotic surgical skills of suturing and knot tying related to urethrovesical anastomosis, continent
diversion and partial nephrectomy
• Discuss current and upcoming protocols for regaining potency and continence following robotic prostatectomy and cystectomy
