Today we are joined by Dr. Allison Feibus, a urology resident at UF Health: Jacksonville. Join us as we dive into what it means to be a urologist, and how modern urologists perform their surgical procedures. In particular, we discuss the Da Vinci "robot", a surgical tool that enables robotic surgery controlled by a surgeon on a console. Urologists were among the first to adopt this tool, and it is an interesting glimpse into the state-of-the-art of surgical techniques, as well as a preview of what future surgical innovations will look like.
