17-19 SEPTEMBER
2021

Modern technologies & techniques of intraoperative robotics and neuroimaging in neurosurgery and spinal surgery.

Hybrid event: Online (Zoom, Youtube), Onsite (the library of the Emergency Clinical Hospital "Prof. Dr. Nicolae Oblu" Iași).

The event is credited with 15 CME credits by the Romanian College of Physicians (RCPh).

INVITATION

We are honored to announce that in 2021 we will continue the tradition and organize, in hybrid format, a new edition of the National Conference of Robotics in Neurosurgery "Modern Technologies & Techniques of intraoperative robotics and neuroimaging in neurosurgery and spinal surgery", between 17 and 19 September 2021.

The main partners are: the Romanian Society of Neurosurgery, the Romanian Academy of Medical Sciences, the Romanian Academy, the University of Medicine and Pharmacy "Gr. T. Popa" Iași, the Iași County Council, the Romanian College of Physicians and the Emergency Clinical Hospital “Prof. Dr. Nicolae Oblu” Iași.

Science does not take a break no matter the times. The main problem of today's world is that of adapting to the new times. Therefore, the proposed general theme of this conference will be "Challenges and controversies in neurosurgery in the times of pandemic". Our lives have changed significantly and continue to change. We have become more supportive and we must remain so.

The COVID-19 pandemic has transformed the virtual space into a new reality that can currently compensate for the restrictions imposed on face-to-face meetings, transforming the National Conference of Robotics in Neurosurgery "Modern technologies & techniques of intraoperative robotics and neuroimaging in neurosurgery and spinal surgery" into an attractive online experience, and therefore we are preparing for this scientific foray into the virtual environment.

The participants in the conference will have the opportunity to learn how to work in neurosurgery with state-of-the-art robotic systems in the field of high-performance intraoperative neuroimaging in neurosurgery and spinal surgery, namely: the Mazor X ™ Stealth Edition robotic guidance platform, the O-ARM 2 system, the Stealth Station S8 system, as well as the Stealth Autoguide cranial robotic guidance platform.

The Mazor X robot is the most advanced robotic system in the world today in the area of spinal surgery. Mazor X is a tool for guiding the screws inserted in the vertebrae of the spine.

The operation is initially carried out virtually, based on the software of the robot, the trajectory, the level, the angle of the screw are determined, and then the robot uses the data in order to guide the surgeon to the place it sets for making the incision.
