The Value of Surgical Energy in Medicine
Using energy to operate is the future of medicine. The idea is becoming more popular and more clinically relevant. This session will review the commonly used energy sources in surgery, helping us understand how the new technology is producing success in medicine, as well as recognizing its limitations. This education is critically important to achieving successful outcomes, minimizing complications and enhancing the safety of patients and personnel. This session will provide an overview and will discuss strategies to optimize the use of energy sources during surgery to improve surgical care and outcomes.
