Visiting the Cork University Maternity Hospital.

Not only are we very fortunate in having a da Vinci Robot in the Cork University Maternity Hospital we also have state-of-the-art laparoscopic gynaecology theatres with the Storz OR1 sytem directly linked to the University teaching floor of the Hospital . We have hosted laparoscopic and robotic surgery courses and have had many visitors to our theatres.

We have recently been designanted an Intuitive surgical recognised epicentre for robotic gynaecological surgery. This is the only such centre in Europe to offer both Oncological and urogynae surgery.

We host visiting surgeons from the across Europe who are interested in learning more about robotic surgery.
