HPB further education - Robotic HPB surgery

      While some will argue over whether robotic surgery is the future or has already become the present for HPB surgery several issues remain to be resolved. How does one safely train in robotics? In his leading article, Jawad Ahmed used a familiar phrase to describe a “step-up approach” to robotic training.

      Training in robotic Hepatobiliary and pancreatic surgery: a step-up approach.
      He splits HPB procedures into three levels of complexity and describes a proctorship model and the other aspects required to provide a safe, effective and accountable program. In a ten-year experience from the Pittsburgh group, Al Abbas and colleagues describe their experience in developing proficiency in robotic distal pancreatectomy with an experience of almost 300 cases.

      Mentorship and formal robotic proficiency skills curriculum improve subsequent generations' learning curve for the robotic distal pancreatectomy.
      They outline their five-step proficiency-based training program and emphasise the importance of mentorship which can shorten learning curves.
