In part two of the Robotic Thoracic Surgery webinar series, experts will discuss how a collaborative thoracic and pulmonary robotic approach is expanding thoracic oncology. Through increased lung cancer screening and incidental pulmonary nodule programs, the management of 8-10 mm pulmonary nodules in high-risk patients has come to the forefront, especially with the growing adoption of robotic navigational bronchoscopy and its associated greater precision. This webinar will explore best practices and current technology in the pulmonary and thoracic fields, as well as emerging therapies.

During this STS webinar, the first of two exploring robotic thoracic surgery, attendees will learn how to manage an airway injury and other challenging cases, when to control robotically versus conversion, and when to open before an emergency. The expert faculty will also discuss how to establish a simulation program at your institution.
