The activity is designed to improve the surgical technique of surgeons and residents who may be interested in performing robotic surgery for cancers of the chest. Novices will find the course useful as a view into what the potential scope of robotic surgery may be for their practices in addition to obtaining hands-on experience of the surgical robot. More experienced robotic surgeons will be able to advance their techniques and management by in-depth discussion and interaction with renowned guest faculty who are experts in in the field. In addition to technical aspects of robotic chest surgery we will provide critical literature review to better define the value of robotic thoracic surgery relative to other minimally invasive approaches as well as traditional open ones. By the end of the activity, the attendee should walk away with a broad understanding of the current state of robotic thoracic surgery, including many tips that will foster improved proficiency and better understanding of the possibilities as well as limitations of robotic surgery.
