On behalf of the Clinical Robotic Surgery Association and our Scientific Committee I am delighted to invite you to join our community of robotic surgeons and be a part of the group that is changing the way we care for our patients.
Since its establishment in 2009, the CRSA has made tremendous strides functioning as a leading voice for the global community of minimally invasive surgeons using the robotic system in General Surgery and we continue to ensure adherence to quality improvements in clinical practice with the goal of improving patient safety.
Our members have been instrumental in developing general robotic surgical techniques as well as advancing our knowledge concerning the benefits of robotic surgery. With continuous academic interactions, we have welcomed more than 2000 surgeons throughout the world. In addition to our building expertise in robotic surgery, robotic technologies have also evolved over the years, with the development of much more complex and capable robotic systems.
Taking robotic surgery, and hence “general surgery”, to the next frontier continues to be a demanding task. Our current times are characterized by economic constraints being more prominent than ever. And equally important, patients’ safety concerns have become more sensitive throughout the years. At this difficult stage, many responsibilities fall into the hands of the CRSA community, to continue to advance robotic surgery by responding to the needs and demands of this current time. I have no doubt that with our history, we will continue to develop and advance the art and science of surgery.
We are excited to hold this year’s annual CRSA Congress in Chicago on September 22-23, 2017. This will be our 9th annual event providing valuable experience, networking and debate opportunities, knowledge, skills and know-how with the highest level of innovation and technological advancements at your disposal.
The 2017 Annual Congress is welcoming our national and international participants from the Asian, European, and Latin American market. We are working hard to ensure that your presence at this congress will be a highly valuable experience.
We look forward to your participation at our 9th Annual CRSA Worldwide Congress in the beautiful City of Chicago. Come and join us, as we actively commit to make this meeting a noteworthy accomplishment.
We look forward to seeing you there.
MD CRSA President
