Abstract

Background: The expanding use of robotic technology has introduced a requirement to incorporate this technology into traditional training programs. The goal of this study is to demonstrate the safe introduction of the robotic surgical system during residency programs, using robotic cholecystectomy as the basic procedure. Methods: A total of 170 patients who underwent robotic cholecystectomy at a tertiary center were retrospectively reviewed. Data collected included patient's age, gender, weight, BMI, operative time, hospital stay, associated procedures, and complications. Results: Of the 170 patients, mean age, BMI, operative time and estimated blood loss was 40.04 years, 32.78 kg/m2, 93.79 minutes and 13.67 mL, respectively, with acceptable complications. Conclusions: Within the context of a traditional residency program, a standardized training curriculum and technique can be applied to educate residents without increasing surgical complication in the use of robotic platform. Robotic cholecystectomy is a safe and appropriate basic procedure to provide this training.
