A new foundational course in surgical robotics
Technology in surgery continues to evolve in leaps and bounds, particularly the advances of robotics. A little under 20 years ago, Professor Tony Costello performed the first radical prostatectomy using robotics in Australia.
Since then, he has performed 2,500 robotic procedures and has trained dozens of international robotic surgeons at International Medical Robotics Academy (IMRA), an institution he founded and of which he is currently Executive Director and CEO.
RACS has partnered with IMRA to deliver ‘The Foundations of Robotic Surgery’ online introductory course, which provides foundational theory and principles required to safely perform robotic surgical procedures. This course is the first of its kind to have surgeons instructing surgeons on how to use robots in surgery.
