March webinar – Robotics, the future of transplant surgery?

An Introduction to Robotic Surgery in Organ Donation and Transplantation

Saturday 26 March, 10am

Online via Zoom

We’re pleased to announce our next webinar in the Winter Webinars 2021/22 series which is a fascinating insight into the application of robotics in surgery.

In this webinar Mr Prodromos Laftsidis, Consultant Transplant Surgeon at Portsmouth Hospitals University NHS Trust, will introduce robotic surgery for living kidney donors and transplant recipients. He will talk about the benefits and show what is involved in this procedure.

The webinar is suitable for anyone with an interest in the application of robotics in surgery or in kidney donor or recipient surgery. Please note the webinar will include filmed footage of surgical procedures. There will also be the chance to ask questions.

Born in Greece, Mr Prodromos Laftsidis remembers the first time he realised that he wanted to work in the field of transplantation. “My sister back in Greece had a kidney and pancreas transplant and I saw how her quality of life improved so dramatically. It was extraordinary.”

Mr Laftsidis (Makis) is currently a Consultant Transplant Surgeon at the Wessex Kidney Centre. He obtained his surgical training in Democritus University of Thrace (he also has a MSc from the same university and is completing his PhD, specialising in Hepatobiliary Diseases).
