Clinical Robotic Surgery Association launched in India
This is the first Indian robotic surgery society
Robotic Surgery is the latest advancement in the field of surgery. It involves using computer assistance and artificial intelligence to help do complex surgical procedures with precision and best clinical outcomes.
Clinical Robotic Surgery Association (CRSA) is the leading body of experts in the field of Robotic Surgery across the world, based out of Chicago, USA. It has started with the first international chapter in India. The inaugural meeting of the chapter was recently held in New Delhi.
This is the first Indian robotic surgery society. The inaugural meeting of CRSA India will see leading surgeons from all over the country and abroad come together and share their knowledge and wisdom in the field of robotic surgery. CRSA India would also provide training opportunities to young surgeons who want to train themselves in the field of Robotic Surgery. It would help surgeons learn from the best experts with the help of a peer reviewed journal and online video library. The members can access the surgical techniques of experts, and visit them for further training.
Honorable speaker of Lok Sabha, Om Birla will be the chief guest for the inaugural event. Prof. Ranjan Sudan, Professor of Surgery and Vice-Chair of Education at Duke University who is current worldwide president of CRSA would be the guest of honor.
More than 250 surgeons from across the country and abroad have registered for the meeting. There will be hands on training opportunity on the robotic system and simulator for the surgeons who attend the meeting. The proceedings of the meeting would be shared live online. There would be panel discussions between experts in the field to share ideas, and reach conclusions in gray areas.
Dr Vivek Bindal, Chapter Regent, CRSA India said “With this launch of Indian robotic surgery society, both surgeons and patients would be benefited. It would lead to better training and mentoring opportunities for surgeons, and the society would formulate norms to ensure safe surgery for patients. Also, there will be opportunities for visiting centers of excellence throughout the world, and gain knowledge and skillset in the field of robotic surgery”.
