Richard Satava, MD, FACS
Professor of Surgery
University of Washington
The OR of the future will integrate information systems with surgical devices and equipment to enable real-time data capture. However, adopting that technology will demand that surgeons approach their tasks from a systems perspective rather than viewing them as individual components. Dr Satava discusses this change in approach, and explains the role of the surgical �warm-up�. Dr Satava is a past president of SAGES, and has published and lectured extensively on the subject of new technology in surgery.
This interview was recorded at SAGES 2008 Surgical Spring Week, held April 9�12, 2008, in Philadelphia, PA.
