We’re delighted to present the ‘Surgical Robotics: Engineering to Bedside’ symposium, in collaboration with the Congress of Neurological Surgeons at their annual meeting on Sunday 7 October 2018.

This symposium focuses on understanding state-of-the-art robotic systems that support a range of cranial and spinal surgery procedures, allowing participants to evaluate current and upcoming systems for cranial stereotactic, endoscopy and spine applications.

Participants will gain a foundational understanding of robotic systems in the context of clinical benefit, providing a framework to make educated assessments regarding trade-offs between features and performance of current and upcoming systems. The future of robotics in Neurosurgery will also be discussed.

Evaluation and assessment of current technology

Date: 7 Oct 2018
Time: 1:00pm - 2:00pm
Speaker: Chris Wagner, Tabitha Solomon

The future of surigcal robotics: will you be part of it?

Chris Wagner (Head of Advanced Surgical Systems) will present ‘Efficiency and accuracy trade-offs in current robotic systems’ at 1pm, followed by Tabitha Solomon (Principal Human Factors Engineer) presenting ‘Pre-operative setup and intraoperative workflow considerations for current robotic systems’ at 1:25pm.

Chris and Tabitha will then lead a panel discussion entitled ‘Clinical needs and engineering trade-offs in today’s cranial and spine robots’ at 1:45pm.

Future directions

Date: 7 Oct 2018
Time: 2:30pm - 3:30pm
Speaker: Joe Corrigan, Serge Roux

Joe Corrigan (Senior Consultant, Medical Technology) will present ‘Artificial intelligence for pre-operative planning support and post-operative analysis’ at 2:45pm, followed by Serge Roux (Associate Director, Industrial Design & Innovation Management) presenting ‘Next generation user interfaces for spine surgery’ at 3pm.

Joe and Serge will then lead a panel discussion entitled ‘Key emerging technology for robot enhanced neurosurgery’ at 3:15pm.
