Mr Subar is presenting his findings of using the FreeHand for laparoscopic liver surgery at the 2016 AUGIS Conference in Leeds.
Poster 180 – Titled: Is the use of a robotic camera economically viable? A cost comparison of surgical assistant versus robotic freehand in laparoscopic liver resections
It concludes: the robotic camera was safe and feasible to use. It was calculated to be more economically than an experienced surgical assistant. The robotic camera negates the financial need for one of the two assistants.
