OG Robotic Consensus Meeting

Monday 16th January 2023

Royal College of Surgeons of England

Robotic surgery is becoming increasingly popular amongst upper gastrointestinal surgeons specialising in oesophageal and gastric disease. We are excited to announce that AUGIS will be holding a face to face meeting on Monday 16th January 2023 at the Royal College of Surgeons for all surgeons interested in performing robotic surgery in this area. We will cover training, implementation and governance.

There will be presentations from industry partners and opportunity to meet with the robotic teams as well as surgeons experienced with these platforms. In the afternoon there will be an open forum to discuss safe implementation and governance of robotic surgery in the UK. This will lead to an AUGIS statement guiding clinicians on robotic surgery in their respective trusts. We welcome both experienced and inexperienced surgeons to partake in this important meeting designing the future of robotic OG surgery in the UK.
