St. Mark’s Hospital has been pioneering a research programme into the use of robot technology in colorectal surgery, financially backed by St Mark’s Hospital Foundation. In this talk, Jason Bacon (CEO of St. Mark’s Hospital Foundation) and Kapil Sahnan (Consultant Colorectal surgeon at St. Mark’s) will give an update on this fascinating project. Compares traditional open surgery with laparoscopic and robot assisted laparoscopic surgeries.
NB. The original webcast included a short video of “live” robotic surgery which has been removed for privacy reasons, but the talk and content does not lose anything as a result of this edit.
