The USC Institute of Urology hosted “L.A. Live—International Robotic and Open Live Surgery Symposium,” which attracted more than more than 240 physicians to the Aresty Auditorium from May 1-2. A roster of 40 renowned international surgeons served as speakers and moderators for the event, which featured 10 live robot-assisted and open surgeries. The event was designed to help improve robotic skills for all levels of surgeons.
“The L.A. Live Robotics symposium brought together leading urologists from all over the world to USC,” said Inderbir Gill, founding director of the USC Institute of Urology and chairman and professor of the Department of Urology at the Keck School of Medicine of USC. “Innovations pioneered at the USC Institute of Urology and around the world were presented—cutting-edge robotic and open techniques for kidney, prostate and bladder cancer. The goal of this event was to together chart a course for the future.”
