The conference familiarises surgeons with the latest techniques in the treatment of urological diseases
Robotic Urology Forum, a national organisation of surgeons practising the art of robotic urological surgeries, has joined hands with Intuitive Surgical, a global technology leader in minimally invasive care and the pioneer of robotic-assisted surgery (RAS), to conduct their 4th annual conference. The three-day-long conference named RUFCON’22 was aimed at familiarising surgeons, nurses and other healthcare professionals with the clinical application of the latest techniques in the treatment of urological disorders. The conference, organised at Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital, Nadiad was attended by experts of Urology from across the country.
The organising committee had formulated comprehensive sessions to ensure an extensive knowledge sharing experience for the attendees. Apart from comprehensive sessions on the evolution of robotic-assisted surgery in India, there were detailed sessions on the application of RAS in uro-oncology, reconstructive urology, kidney transplant, pediatric urology and female urology. Another motive of the conference was to establish the guidelines for the best ways to manage urological cancers in this rapidly evolving treatment landscape to make sure that patients receive ideal care.
Dr Arvind Ganpule, Organising Secretary, RUFCON’22 and Chief, Division of laparoscopy and robotic surgery, Muljibhai Patel Urological Hospital said, “This year we had around 150 uro-surgeons share their knowledge with others. We also demonstrated 10 live surgeries from MPUH Nadiad and HCG Hospital Ahmedabad by using Da Vinci RAS system during the conference."
