Lecture: Adopting single port robotic sacrocolpopexy- tips and tricks

Robotic technology continues to evolve. Understanding the opportunities for safe innovation are critical to the evolution of surgical techniques. Single port robotic platform allows for intra-abdominal surgery to be performed through a single umbilical incision. This platform has its benefits and limitations. When performing sacrocolpopexy, especially with supracervical hysterectomy, there is a need for extended incision for specimen removal. We will discuss the tips and limitations to adopting single port robotic surgery for sacrocolpopexy.
