Mission

The mission of the Association is to help spread robotic techniques in general surgery and its related specialties. More specifically, the Association plans to undertake activities that:

(1) provide the ideal forum to compare and discuss practical aspects of surgery;
(2) facilitate the opportunity to contract colleagues, experts, proctors and trainers;
(3) favor multi-institutional programs at all times;
(4) support and favor clinical and experimental research aimed at expanding the clinical application of robotic surgery; and
(5) develop standards of practice that encourage quality improvement in clinical practice for the purpose of enhancing patient safety.

To that end, the Association plans to:

(1) build a web environment that will allow surgeons to share videos, advice and innovations;
(2) facilitate the opportunity to contract colleagues, experts, proctors and trainers;
(3) organize exchanges, stages, and case observations, and conduct virtual and on-site meetings;
(4) organize, support and standardize educational models and training programs;
and (5) support and favor clinical and experimental research aimed at expanding the clinical application of robotic surgery.
