After a long wait, we carefully reviewed the pandemic situation and decided to pick up on our collaboration with the European Robotic Institute and ProstataZentrum NordWest in Germany.
The Virtual Grena Workshop took place on April 13, 2021 with live transmitted operations from Gronau, Germany to a group of participants who could ask questions via webchat to the operating surgeons. During the workshop, two robot-assisted prostatectomies (RARPs) were performed - one by Dr. Christian Wagner (MD) and another one in the afternoon by Dr. Jörn H. Witt (MD).
After over a year of learning to live in the pandemic reality, we had to adapt new ways of communicating on an everyday basis, which also included learning new digital technologies. What better place to restart the learning in a digital way than at the European Robotic Institute!
