  • Tracheal Resection & Anastomosis for Tracheal tumor (Supra-carinal)
  • Pneumonectomy for post TB destroyed Left Lung

The live transmission on 12th Feb, 2014 was watched by over 100 delegates which included who's who of India's Thoracic Surgeons from Mumbai, Kolkata, Chennai, Ludhiana, Meerut, Varanasi, Delhi and numerous other cities and leading Pulmonologists from Delhi.

The unparalleled Robotic skills of Prof Cerfolio were a feast for the eyes and he mesmerized the audience with his attention to smallest of details and obsession with "protocol" based approach to everything we do in the Operating Room. Every delegate remarked that they will be "different" after watching him.

The first of its kind workshop proved to be a milestone in the development of Robotic Thoracic Surgery in India.
