9th International Robotic Surgery Symposium &Workshop in Head & Neck Cancer

Dear my respected colleagues,

We would like to express our full respect to those who leads minimally invasive, functional preservation surgery for better treatment of head and neck cancer patients.

The IRSS is to be held for the 9th time this year on upcoming October 25th-27th, 2019. We have been pioneering and leading Robot Surgery so far and trying to make the best program this year again by sharing new knowledge and experience. The 9th IRSS is planning to do various live demonstration which using flexible single port system. In this 9th symposium, making the theme “New Era of Robotic Head and Neck Surgery Using New Flexible Single Port System” our motto, interesting live surgeries are planned including TORS & Robotic Neck Surgery using DaVinci SP® System on both days in addition to the Robotic HN Surgery Dissection Course on 25th the 1st day, and the Main Symposium on 26-27. This symposium will cover all kinds of HN surgery using various robotic system including DaVinci SP® System and discuss about Future technologies in the upcoming 4th Industrial Revolution.

There will be the informative and up to date sessions in 2 days about the New concept of robotic surgery in Head and Neck/ENT Trials on progress, and the new surgical robot with 13 Keynote and 7 Distinguised Speaker.

We believe that the treatment we perform now is the best choice of treatment for patients with head and neck cancer and ENT disease.

But we never know if this will be true few years later. As Surgical Technology is evolving rapidly every day, we will never be able to provide the best medical care to our patients unless we try to make the best use of it. I hope this symposium and workshop will be a valuable stepping stone for such efforts.

Please honor us with your presence and share your knowledge at the 9th IRSS.

Best regards,
