Fundamentals of Robotic Surgery: Summary of Work to Date

  1. 1. Fundamentals of Robotic Surgery: Curriculum and Certification Roger Smith, PhD Chief Technology Officer
  2. 2. Robotic and Telesurgery Research Project Robotic Curriculum Telesurgery SimulationConsensus Conference: Communication Latency: Military-use Validation:•Define Robotic Surgery outcomes •Map surgical movements to latency •Identify military constraints•Develop Robotic Surgery curriculum •Redesign for latency tolerance •Validate simulator for military-use•Develop specific training tasks •Introduce instruments for safety •Define deployable package •Target city-pairs by latencyCurriculum Validation: Automatic Surgery: Surgical Rehearsal:•Validate training tasks •Record movements in simulator •Import patient CT scan•Identify testing measures •Execute movements with robot •Patient-specific rehearsal simulator•Set passing criteria •Measure accuracy of outcome •Measure impact on surgical perform
