Training is of great importance in laparoscopy. There are different commercially available trainers which are quite expensive and are used by trainees only inside the hospital. The aim of...
The purpose of this study is to determine whether robotic assistance can help facilitate adherence, engagement, and weight loss in participants enrolled in a behavioral weight loss program...
The purpose of this research is to determine if there is a difference in total costs of care and return to health in women who undergo a laparoscopic abdominal sacrocolpopexy (ASC)compared...
Objective: To compare the efficacy of a gait training program using robotic assistance combined with virtual reality versus robotic assistance alone on energy expenditure in children with ...
Robotic gait training is often used with the aim to improve walking ability in individuals with Spinal Cord Injury. However, robotic gait training alone may not be sufficient. This study w...
Over the past 20 years, feasibility of laparoscopic approaches has been validated in gynecologic surgery. This procedure has specific challenges due its longer learning curve and the limits imposed by...
Smaller incisions and reduced surgical trauma made minimally invasive surgery (MIS) grow in popularity even though long training is required to master the instrument manipulation constraints. While nu...
To provide feedback to surgeons in robotic surgery training, many surgical skill evaluation methods have been developed. However, they hardly focus on the performance of the surgical motion segments. ...
Pelvic exenteration is considered a method to treat central recurrent or persistent gynecologic malignancy after the initial therapy. The postoperative survival rate has been greatly increased by the ...
With the increased use of simulation for surgical training, there is a need for objective forms of assessment to evaluate trainees. The Global Evaluative Assessment of Robotic Skills (GEARS) is widely...
Surgical procedures performed using a computer that remotely controls surgical instruments attached to mechanical arms designed to perform the tasks of the surgeon.
Soft tissue formed mainly by the pelvic diaphragm, which is composed of the two levator ani and two coccygeus muscles. The pelvic diaphragm lies just below the pelvic aperture (outlet) and separates the pelvic cavity from the PERINEUM. It extends between the PUBIC BONE anteriorly and the COCCYX posteriorly.
Injury, weakening, or PROLAPSE of the pelvic muscles, surrounding connective tissues or ligaments (PELVIC FLOOR).
The part of the pelvis, inferior to the pelvic brim, that comprises both the pelvic cavity and the part of the PERINEUM lying inferior to the PELVIC DIAPHRAGM.
Financial support for training including both student stipends and loans and training grants to institutions.
