At the recently held Annual Conference of Association of Otolaryngologists of India (AOICON 2013) in Pune, India, Vattikutti Foundation showcased the Da Vinci SI Surgical Robotic System to the 1500 odd delegates present.
Within a few hours of the show opening – all 300 odd slots of hands-on sessions of using the Da Vinci Robot were booked out.
KW Conferences worked with Vattikutti Foundation to move the highly sensitive Da Vinci Robot from Bangalore to Pune for the event. The entire piece of equipment was about 2 tonnes with the heaviest of the crates being 800 odd kgs. With the robot setup at the venue - the doctors were able to try their hands at robotic surgery, many of them using the machine for the first time.
