Overview

Dear Colleagues&Friends, I have been mainly dealing with Robotic urology since the beginning of 2009. Due to January 2018 statistics, I personally performed >500 Robotic urology procedures including: Robotic Prostate cancer surgery (mostly) (some cases with concomitant inguinal hernia repair with mesh), Robotic Bladder cancer surgery (with intracorporeal urinary diversion), Robotic Kidney cancer surgery (mostly partial nephrectomy, some cases with zero ischemia), Robotic adrenal surgery and Robotic pyeloplasty. I also participated in 10 robotic sacrocolpopexy cases as a console surgeon to help one of my colleagues. Apart from the >500 cases that I personally performed, I proctored >100 robotic prostate cancer surgery cases. Before starting as a console surgeon, I assisted > 200 cases as a bed side assistant. Overall, due to January 2018 statistics, I have had a current experience & exposure of more than 800 robotic urological cases. I have many international papers published particularly in the field of robotic urology. Currently, I have been serving as an ERUS board member and previously I was a member of EAU YAU J-ERUS group. I have been also serving as an ERUS certified robotic urology trainer,tutored at many robotic courses. I have been taking part in the editorial board of scientific journals (Eur Urol, CEJU Videourology, EMJ Urology, Robotics research & reviews) particularly related with urology. I have been serving as the editor of the e-journal Robotics, Laparoscopy & Endosurgery with Videosurgery. I am a member of EAU,AUA,SIU,ERUS and Endourological Society. Apart from urology & robotics, I like playing accordion and dealing with music. With kind regards...Dr.A.Erdem Canda (Twitter: @erdemcanda)

When going to a course that includes partial nephrectomy i believe it is mandatory to see a live case in the OR. Unfortunately this was not so. Could be improved for the future, the rest was superb
