Global assembling of Academicians, Researchers, Scholars & Industry to disseminate and exchange information at 100+ Allied Academics Conferences
Doctor Ioannis G. Papanikolaou is born in Athens. In 2009 he graduates in Medicine with Excellent votation - Medical Degree (MD). During his University studies he is distinguished with 6 University Scholarships from the ‘‘ADSU Foundation’’. Afterwards, he returns in Athens, being selected from the Faculty for a 2 years Postgraduate Programme, which confers the title of Master of Science in ‘‘Robotic Surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery and Telesurgery’’, in the University of Athens, Medical School in Greece. . In 2011 he is distinguished again with Excellent votation and obtains the title of “Master of Science” in the Athens Medical School in “Robotic Surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery and Telesurgery”. He has been also distinguished with the First Prize in the “Laparoscopic Simulation Cup”. He is a Da Vinci Si certified surgeon for Robotic Gynaecology (Intuitive cerification). He has been awarded by Allied Academies in United Kingdom – London, for his research activity. He has participated in more than 250 international and national congresses as Organizing Committee Member, Invited Speaker, Keynote Speaker or Speaker. He has organized the Gynaecology and Breast Cancer Congress in Milan, in 2019. He is author of many publications in international and national journals with more than 100 citations in international peer reviewed journals. He is also selected as reviewer for many prestigious international journals such as The British Medical Journal, Stem Cells International, Surgical Laparoscopy Endoscopy & Percutaneous Techniques, Journal of Medical Robotics & Computer Assisted Surgery, The European Journal of Obstetrics, Gynecology and Reproductive Biology. Currently, he works as an Obstetrics & Gyaecology specialist in the Humanitas Fertility Center in Humanitas University and Research Hospital in Milan. His academic and clinical enrollment regards mainly Reproductive Endocrinology, Infertility and Gynaecological Endoscopy. For the Subspecialty – Fellowship in Reproductive Medicine, Dr. Ioannis G. Papanikolaou has been classified in 1st position with the top votation after academic evaluation of all candidates from different countries of the world.
In recent years, the surgical practice has been changed since the introduction of minimally invasive surgery. Laparoscopic and robotic surgery have significant advantages compared with laparotomy. Robotic technology has helped surgeons overcome many technical difficulties of conventional laparoscopic surgery. Robotics are feasible in the treatment of endometrial cancer with a short learning curve. Operative time is longer compared to laparotomy, but similar or shorter than laparoscopy. Robot dogging time increases the global length of the procedure, but it decreases with experience. The overall morbidity rate seems lower than with other approaches. Hospital stay, postoperative pain and time to recovery are decreased when compared to laparotomy as well as to laparoscopy for some authors. Robotics may offer significant advantages in the treatment of morbidly obese patients who represent the vast majority of endometrial cancer patients. Robotic techniques have benefits over traditional open surgery for management of endometrial cancer, especially in the group of obese patients for whom laparoscopy presents significant limitations. The main limit for the diffusion of robotic surgery is accessibility because of its important cost.
