Titan Medical Inc., a medical device company focused on the design and development of a robotic surgical system for application in minimally invasive surgery (MIS), announced that Dr. Rafael Sanchez-Salas of the Institute Mutualiste Montsouris (Paris, France) will present an overview of the SPORT Surgical System as part of his presentation in the Technology Forum at the 13th Meeting of the European Association of Urology (EAU) Robotic Urology Section (ERUS). The meeting is being held in Milan Italy from September 14-16, 2016 and Dr. Sanchez-Salas’ presentation will be on Wednesday, September 14, 2016.
The annual ERUS meeting is the scientific platform for urologists seeking the latest technical developments and the continuous progress of urological science and practice. The meeting’s aim is to educate the urological community on robotic surgical techniques with the ultimate goal of improving the level of patient care.
ERUS16 will feature high-quality robotic surgery by international experts with interactive moderation. The focus of the meeting will be on practical instructions on robotic surgery with live-surgery sessions and hands-on training courses from the European School of Urology. The highly interactive format of the meeting invites fruitful discussions. A technical exhibition will be held jointly with the meeting, where manufacturers will be showcasing the latest breakthroughs.
The Institute Mutualiste Montsouris (IMM) is a private health institution at the forefront of technological innovations and is among the best establishments in France.
