BIARGS 2018

  • University of Surrey Surrey UK (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Thank you for your interest in BIARGS and we hope that you will be able to join us at The University of Surrey, Guildford for this international educational meeting in gynaecological robotic surgery. Guildford is a renowned centre of excellence for minimally invasive surgery and training, and is now the recognised Epicentre for training in robotic Gynae surgery in the UK. 

vsm outside 2.png

The Gynae-oncology department in Guildford was the first in the UK to adopt robotic surgery into mainstream NHS practice and all four Consultants are robotically trained. The Guildford team have performed over a thousand cases predominantly for gynaecological cancer, and have trained a number of surgeons from home and abroad in these necessary skills pertinent to the modern gynaecological surgeon. 

The two key themes to this two-day meeting are: firstly clinical training of surgeons, theatre nurses and first assistants with da Vinci robotics, and secondly embedding robotic surgery into mainstream clinical practice, including MDT working among pelvic surgeons, updates on NHS commissioning and private medical insurance issues, and insights into new and future platforms from all robotics manufacturers.

vsm outside 2.png

The BIARGS faculty are supported by two of the world’s most experienced trainers in robotic surgery in from the USA: Prof Arnold Advincula, from Columbia University, New York, past President of the AAGL, and many would say father of robotic gynaecologic surgery; and from Europe, Professor René Verheijen, Consultant Gynaecological Oncologist from UMC Utrecht, the current President of the European Society SERGS, and who has lead their Training Committee since its inception.

Whether you are an experienced robotic surgeon, a novice, an O&G trainee, first assistant, or hospital manager evaluating the possible benefits of investing in this technology, we hope you will join us for what is sure to be an excellent and enjoyable educational meeting.
