The Hernia Centrum Maria Middelares Ghent has started robotic abdominal wall surgery in September 2016 as one of the first hospitals in Europe.
Having experience with over 800 surgeries in the last 3 years, a lot of expertise has been acquired that is of pivotal interest to other surgeons preparing to adopt robotic hernia surgery in their practice.
Visiting an onsite case observationor clinical immersion is also part of the structured robotic training pathway.
Currently we are hosting surgeons on a weekly basis for case observations. Logistically, this is coordinated by Intuitive Surgical or Medtronic.
