Credentialing and Privileging in Robotic


Dr. and Professor Arnold Advincula”s VGR2012 presentation “Credentialing and Privileging in Robotic Surgery: What is a Gynecologist To Do?”. Although this lecture with both PowerPoint and video was aimed at his specialty, Gynecology, points made here will apply to all robotic surgery fields. Dr. Advincula claims that robotic surgery is a “Team Sport”, and that every one in the operating room needs to be held to high levels of training first observing, then through proctoring, simulation and continuing education. “It makes no sense to get trained and then have no access to a daVinci robot,” is another point he makes. 29:48
