NARUS 2019: Progression to Excellence

At this year's NARUS meeting we have a new format for the agenda.  Rather than disease-specific, we are going with surgical concepts across multiple disease sites and building the knowledge from setup steps to key steps to troubleshooting to reoperative situations.  We will weave in live surgery and keynote speakers from robotics, oncology, pediatrics, allied health and reconstruction.  We will finish with awards for best posters.

Program Topic Areas

ADULT:

Topic Area: Prostate
  1. To critique high impact publications in robotic surgery for prostate cancer
  2. To demonstrate refined techniques for preserving urinary control after robot-assisted radical prostatectomy, and link them to patient reported outcomes
  3. To demonstrate nerve preserving surgical plane selection and recognition
Topic Area: Renal
  1. To demonstrate the surgical steps of robotic surgery procedures for kidney cancer
  2. Analyze the robotic techniques unique to the surgical management of kidney cancer
  3. Describe tips and tricks to manage difficult intra-operative situations and avoid complications
  4. Discuss the key complications and outline the intra-operative and post-operative management related to robotic surgery procedures
Topic Area: Bladder
  1. To demonstrate the surgical steps of robotic surgery procedures for bladder cancer
  2. Analyze the robotic techniques unique to the surgical management of bladder cancer
  3. Describe tips and tricks to manage difficult intra-operative situations and avoid complications
  4. Discuss the key complications and outline the intra-operative and post-operative management related to robotic surgery procedures
Topic Area: Reconstruction
  1. To demonstrate the surgical steps of robotic surgery procedures for reconstructive surgery
  2. Analyze the robotic techniques unique to the surgical management of reconstructive patients
  3. Describe tips and tricks to manage difficult intra-operative situations and avoid complications
  4. Discuss the key complications and outline the intra-operative and post-operative management related to robotic surgery procedures

PEDIATRICS:

Topic Area I: Ureteral Reimplantation
  1. To discuss the role of pediatric robotic reimplantation for the treatment of VUR
  2. o analyze the key steps of pediatric robotic reimplantation as well as tips and tricks to maximize surgical success rates and minimize complications
Topic Area II: Pyeloplasty / Heminephrectomy / Uretero-ureterostomy / Pediatric Oncology
  1. To discuss the role of robotic surgery for pediatric kidney procedures such as pyeloplasty, nephrectomy / hemi-nephrectomy, and uretero-ureterostomy.
  2. To describe the key steps as well as tips and tricks of pediatric robotic kidney procedures.
Topic Area III: Complex Reconstruction
  1. To describe recent refinements and advances in robotic surgical technology that benefit pediatric complex reconstruction procedures
  2. To discuss the use and focused patient selection process for pediatric robotic reconstruction procedures

ALLIED HEALTHCARE:

Summary
  1. Provide a unique opportunity for the peri-operative nurses and allied health professionals working in robotics to learn strategies for successful robotic surgery across multiple specialties from the pre-, intra-, and post-operative perspectives.
  2. Collaborate with or without their surgeon counterparts.
  3. Discuss and experience hands-on workshops that cover areas such as optimizing efficiency, team management, assist strategies, communication, organization, positioning/safety concerns, troubleshooting.

NARUS 2019 will feature cutting edge robotic reconstructive surgery talks and surgeries. Featured: Jill Buckley (left) gave the 2018 GURS lecture. Dan Eun (center) performed robotic simple prostatectomy. Lee Zhao (right) will be the 2019 GURS lecture
