Apollo Children's Hospital organized a workshop and Continuing Medical Education (CME) programme on Pediatric Subcutaneous Endoscopic Surgery and Robotics on July 8th 2013.
There were nearly 70 doctors from all over India who had participated in the same and benefitted by the live relay of the stealth surgery techniques.
Addressing the gathering, Dr Ashwin Pimpalwar, Minimally Invasive Pediatric Surgeon, Houston, Texas, spoke about the da Vinci Si system.
Stating that advanced single port systems were in the offing, he said, if such robotic systems were made available, it would be like "a crab working inside the belly during the surgery."
