Surgical team roles, responsibilities, and emergent management of the da Vinci or da Vinci S Surgical System were emphasized. da Vinci ® /da Vinci® S™ Surgical System Off-Site Training Program for a Console Surgeon Conducted Aug 16, 2006 Newark Beth Israel Jerry McNamara Executive Vice President, Worldwide Sales and Marketing Training conducted by: _________Peter Carnegie_______Gene Nagel Vice President, Sales Training and Education This training program is not a replacement for hospital policy regarding surgical credentialing. Intuitive Surgical only trains on the use of the surgical tool, the da Vinci Surgical System. Any demonstration(s) during the training on how to use the System to perform a particular technique or procedure is not the recommendation or “certification” of Intuitive as to such technique or procedure, but rather is merely a sharing of information on how other surgeons may have used the System to perform a given technique or procedure.
