Robotic Upper Urinary Tract Human Fresh Frozen Cadaver Course was organised on 25 February 2023 in the morning. Faculty included Mr. Mark Sullivan, Dr. Tarık Esen and Dr. Yakup Kordan. We had 2 trainees for this course. Information about ports sites and robot docking was given. Trainees step-by-step performed taking down the colon, identification of the kidney and ureter, hilar dissection, transperitoneal robotic partial nephrectomy and nephrectomy procedures.
