Advanced Robotics Training — Ear, Nose, and Throat (ENT) Surgery

Through in-depth experience and well-established methods of approach, the ENT surgeons at the UPMC Center for Advanced Robotics Training (CART) provide ongoing guidance and quality assurance.

We customize the requirements of this specialty area to ensure program success within training surgeons’ hospital systems.

ENT Robotics Training Program Overview

CART has developed a comprehensive program, featuring both remote and in-person mentorship.

ENT robotics training coursework features basic robotic mastery to procedure-based skills development, including:

  • Retraction techniques
  • Tissue handling
  • Dissection
  • Performance of various ENT robotic procedures

Training surgeons are ultimately provided a level of familiarity with the robotic system that supports easier, more effective implementation of robotic surgery systems within their own hospitals.

We may also provide continued proctorship via:

  • Video reviews
  • On-site visits
  • Online resources
