Dr. Riccardo Bertolo and Dr. Alberto Breda share highlights on their first experiences with the Hugo robot in performing partial nephrectomy. They discuss the docking/port placement and give details about the Da Vinci experience (S/Si) in regard to facilitating the landing with this new technology.
They share views on the idea of whether or not the multi-carts Hugo robot will prevent the widespread diffusion of the retroperitoneal robotic approach to partial nephrectomy.
