EDUCATION, TRAINING AND RESEARCH
The Amphia Robot Team started robotic colorectal procedures in 2012. Since then it became the largest centre in the Benelux for robotic assisted colorectal cancer treatment. This resulted in many requests to teach other surgeons and hospitals.
Proctoring: Rogier Crolla and George van der Schelling are proctors for Intuitive and faculty members of the EARCS, the European Association for Robotic Colorectal Surgery. EARCS provides a training program for robotic colorectal surgery. Part of the training program are site visits at our Epicenter Breda to witness robotic colorectal operations. Later in the training program proctors will visit your hospital and OR to coach you during robotic operations. Requests for site visits and /or proctoring are processed via EARCS or your Intuitive representative.
Symposia: we organize symposia and congresses dedicated to robotic surgery
Research: data and results are prospectively recorded and first results have been reported at international congresses.
Fellowship: in 2018 we host the First European Fellow Robot Surgery on behalf of ESCP European Society of ColoProctology ESCP
