From basic skills to fine art – Four-part event

Join us for our second four-part webinar series starting on 17 June 2021

Coordinated by the ESCP and delivered by the European School of Coloproctology Colorectal Robotic Surgery Working Group – ColoRobotica, our panel of leading surgeons, anatomists and thought leaders from across the globe will take you on a scientific robotic colorectal journey, from basic skills to fine art mastery.

The series has been created for those just starting their robotic colorectal practice and skilled robotic colorectal surgeons alike.

Let our team of experts guide you on a unique learning experience across four engaging webinars.

Our events include the highly debated topic of lateral lymph node dissection in rectal cancer, why it is always good to have a plan b and how to successfully implement a robotic colorectal program. Our final webinar will provide a live interactive forum of experts discussing the hottest topics in robotic colorectal surgery.

Event registration open to all.
