EAES Wintermeeting 2021
In the last decades technological innovations such as mobile phones or internet radically changed our life. Technology became the myth of the new millennium and the “reliance” on new technologies increases day by day.
The relationship between surgery and technology represents a major role in the future of our profession.
While numerous new technologies are proposed to surgeons and introduced into clinical practice every year, this happens in many cases after a very limited evaluation. The clinical and economic consequences of this phenomenon and the role of surgeons in managing it, represent some of the major challenges we are facing. For this reason also this year we will demonstrate re-live the use of several technologies in the OR such as flexible robots for trans-anal surgery or suturing devices for flexible endoscopy and their applications in the different districts, to burst discussion on their actual benefit and need and of course, their possible improvements.
Expert surgeons and key opinion leaders will be presenting their experience including the evolution of training & education, analysing the role of artificial intelligence, social media channels and robotic technology for their improvement.
