Laparoendoscopic single-site surgery (LESS) was developed to minimize the morbidity associated with laparoscopic surgery. Application of robotics in urologic surgery has been widely adopted given the advantages it provides over standard laparoscopy including three-dimensional vision, improved ergonomics and enhanced precision and dexterity. The real benefit of robotic LESS is still unbalanced by the limitations of this approach and the sole applicability by highly skilled surgeons. The ideal robotic platform for single port surgery should have the possibility of being deployed through a single access site restoring intra-corporeal triangulation for precise instrument maneuvers. This manuscript reviews the potential applications of R-1 new surgical robot, highlighting its added value in allowing new surgical approaches.

Undergraduate medical education programs for second- , third- , and fourth-year students in which the students receive clinical training and experience in teaching hospitals or affiliated health centers.
Health care services that are respectful of and responsive to the health beliefs, practices and cultural and linguistic needs of diverse patients. The provider and the patient each bring their individual learned patterns of language and culture to the health care experience which must be transcended to achieve equal access and quality health care.
A concept, developed in 1983 under the aegis of and supported by the National Library of Medicine under the name of Integrated Academic Information Management Systems, to provide professionals in academic health sciences centers and health sciences institutions with convenient access to an integrated and comprehensive network of knowledge. It addresses a wide cross-section of users from administrators and faculty to students and clinicians and has applications to planning, clinical and managerial decision-making, teaching, and research. It provides access to various types of clinical, management, educational, etc., databases, as well as to research and bibliographic databases. In August 1992 the name was changed from Integrated Academic Information Management Systems to Integrated Advanced Information Management Systems to reflect use beyond the academic milieu.
