The Las Vegas Institute for Robotic Surgery, based at MountainView Hospital, will host two days of live-stream surgeries as part of the North American Robotic Urology Society (NARUS) national conference, held in Las Vegas Feb. 8 and Feb. 9, 2019.
The live stream urology surgeries are part of the educational component of the NARUS conference that attracts surgeons from across the United States to review and learn about surgical concepts across multiple disease sites. The surgeries will be live-streamed to the physician audience, who will be able to observe and ask questions in real time to the surgeons performing the cases.
The surgeries will be performed by Las Vegas robotic surgeon Dr. Alex Lesani, along with internationally renowned surgeons:
- Tom Ahlering, UC Irving with a focus on low risk prostates
- John Davis, MD Anderson with a focus on high risk prostates
- Jim Porter, Swedish Hospital with a focus on kidneys
- Lee Zhao, New York University with a focus on ureters
