Currently the da Vinci robot is used across 5 provinces in Canada to treat gynecological cancers in a minimally invasive way. Some of you may have had your surgery for OVC using the robot. I know I did back in 2017 through the Princess Margaret Cancer Center in Toronto.
The distributer, Minogue Medical, is looking to increase patient awareness about the surgical treatment options available in Canada through a patient information webinar that will explain what Robotic Assisted Surgery is, its use in gynecology, the benefits of robotic assisted surgery and the differences between it and open and laparoscopic surgery. The presentation, on the Zoom platform, will be 1 hour and include a patients' story and time for questions.
For most, if not all of you, this comes after-the-fact since you've had your surgery already. But some may find the topic of interest and please feel free to forward the registration information to anyone you know who may be, just now, entering into a surgical need and weighing options available.
