Detailed analysis of operating time learning curves in robotic prostatectomy by a novice surgeon.

Abstract:

OBJECTIVES: Structured mentor-led training programmes permit the safe introduction of novice trainees to robotic-assisted laparoscopic prostatectomy (RALP). We outline the first description of parallel learning curves for individual surgical steps and quantify the relative difficulty of each step to propose an order of training in our structured mentoring programme.
