Near-Live Surgery Programme

ESCRS Near-Live Surgery Programme
Saturday 9 September 2023, 14:00 – 16:00

  • In order to create this exciting new format, an ESCRS AV team visited operating theatres and filmed, with live narration, as the surgeons operated
  • The videos were edited by ESCRS to focus on critical steps during the surgery and to allow for discussion
  • This new approach allowed surgeons to operate in familiar environments and with their own patients
  • It also allowed the selection of more challenging cases than would usually be seen with live surgery
  • Any possible ethical issues associated with live surgery were avoided
