    Starting on June 9, and lasting for three days, the Champalimaud Centre for the Unknown hosted the 2016 Challenges in Laparoscopy and Robotics meeting in Lisbon.

    23 live surgeries were broadcast, at times simultaneously, from our brand new, state-of-the-art surgical facility into the auditorium filled with international experts in the field.

     

    The comprehensive scientific programme included live laparoscopic and robotic surgeries performed by the world’s most prominent urologic surgeons.

    New challenges were faced, such as the Trans-Douglas RARP, the Navigated Kidney surgery, the Robotic Orthotopic New Bladder, the Cava Thrombus in RCC, the retroperitoneal Robotic Partial Nephrectomy, the Retroperitoneal Lymphadenectomy and Challenging Radical Prostatectomies.

     

    Some of the most renowned international speakers discussed topics including the Ideal partial nephrectomy, the current status of robotic cystectomy and diversion, Pudendal nerve release, Update of the Pasadena consensus meeting, Challenges in Robotic Prostatectomy and Immunotherapy for renal and bladder cancer.

     

    The event, organised by Renaud Bollens, Inderbir Gill, Vito Pansadoro and our very own head of the Champalimaud Clinical Centre’s Prostate Unit Jorge Fonseca, was a resounding success. The packed auditorium attesting to the level of interest and enthusiasm for this, one of the most exciting and innovative of medical developments, as the Champalimaud Foundation continues to be on the vanguard of oncology.
