Robotic surgery in the 21st Century
Mr Ben Challacombe (Consultant Urological Surgeon, Guy's and St Thomas' NHS Foundation Trust and King's College London) discusses the latest developments in robotic surgery and what we might expect to see in the future.
Ben is about to finish his surgical training in the UK and has recently completed a robotic fellowship with Professor Tony Costello in Melbourne, Australia. During this period he was awarded the prestigious Rowan Nicks Fellowship from the Royal Australasian College of Surgeons and chaired the Research and Information Committee within the Australian Prostate Cancer Centre at Epworth. He has over 70 peer-reviewed publications and 20 book chapters on minimally invasive and robotic urological techniques.
