Inaugural Virtual Symposium

The inaugural symposium of the TeleRobotic Surgery Leadership Council took place on June 20, 2020. This pioneering event featured live TeleRobotic procedures between two physicians separated by over 1700km. The symposium also included lively panel discussions of the capabilities, benefits, challenges and considerations for live remote support and live intra-operative physician collaboration. Discussions also explored the value, potential, and practical paths to progress of long-distance remote procedures and the challenges and considerations for broader use.
