The Operating Room of the Future: A Surgeon's Perspective

Speaker: Adrian Park

Start: Friday, June 03, 2005, 01:00PM

Location: 325b ITE

Abstract: The advent of Laparoscopic cholecystectomy in 1987 ushered in an era of unprecedented surgical change in terms of scope of activity and abbreviated time over which it occurred. The resulting surgical revolution gave rise to a new field of surgery often described as minimally invasive surgery or MIS. Several key technological advances facilitated not only the emergence of MIS but also itís ongoing evolution. Further development in this burgeoning field will be brought about by the coupling of clinical science and expertise with the collaboration of researchers previously uninvolved in surgical investigation such as computer scientist, and electrical, mechanical and chemical engineers to name a few.

In this presentation a brief history of MIS will be provided as well as an overview of recent and key advances in the field. Challenges currently being faced and potential future directions of both MIS and the ORF will also be discussed.
