In this key lecture, Professor Leon Katz outlines innovative technologies in robotic bariatric surgery. Dr. Leon Katz, a bariatric robotic surgeon, talks about the former limitations of robotic platforms and how recent technological developments have led to the creation of a new kind of platforms which offer a quick and simple docking process, greater flexibility of movements on surgical tables, less invasive accesses, and a greater versatility of instruments. Finally, with reference clinical cases, he illustrates the usefulness of robotic platforms in complex and challenging situations, in which they not only allow greater precision of surgical gestures, but also provide additional advantages for educational purposes.
