You’re Invited: Inland Fiber & Data to Facilitate Robotic Microsurgery OnlineMonday, October 31 2011

Inland Fiber & Data (IF&D) will facilitate a robotic microsurgical vaso-vasostomy/vaso-epididymostomy procedure online to an international audience of surgeons from numerous fields. This event will highlight evolving Internet and robotic surgical technology that is advancing abilities to perform medical procedures remotely, with patient and surgeon in separate locations, expanding the use of medical resources while minimizing patient proximity, paving a course for healthcare efficiencies spanning patients and providers globally.

The procedure will be conducted November 5th from Winter Haven Hospital in Winter Haven, Florida by Urologic Microsurgeon Dr. Sijo Parekattil, as part of the Robotic Assisted Microsurgical & Endoscopic Society (RAMSES) 1st Annual Multispecialty Robotic Microsurgery Symposium, Hosted by Winter Haven Hospital and held contiguously in-conference at the Disney BoardWalk Inn November 4-6 in Orlando. Dr. Parekattil is Director of Robotic Surgery & Urology at Winter Haven Hospital, and Clinical Assistant Professor of Urology at the University of Florida. He will utilize the DaVinci Si High Definition Robotic Surgical System for the procedure.

This RAMSES meeting is the first multi-specialty microsurgical gathering of its kind, with microsurgeons from varying fields participating including hand, plastics, reconstructive, ENT, urology, gynecology, ophthalmology, vascular, orthopedics, pediatrics and peripheral nerve. It will feature speakers from both robotic assisted and conventional microsurgical techniques.

To date, over 300 robotic assisted microsurgical procedures have been successfully completed at institutions around the world. Experts believe the advantages provided by robotics in elimination of tremor, scaling of motion and enhanced magnification have the potential to further expand the field of microsurgery, along with uniformity in the tools utilized by microsurgeons across various fields providing a common robotic assisted microsurgical platform.

Inland Fiber & Data is an owner and operator of data center, colocation and disaster recovery facilities in Winter Haven, Florida and Denver, Colorado. Offerings provided by Inland include wholesale data center, private data suites and traditional colocation. Inland is also a provider of Private Cloud Services including hosted storage through its “Storage On A Wire” Solution.

Inland’s primary facilities in Winter Haven, Florida include over 40,000 square feet of data center and disaster recovery space and approximately 45,000 square feet of carrier and telco hotel facilities.

The Inland facilities are SSAE 16 compliant and were designed and developed with the needs of the mission critical end-user in mind. Carrier grade facilities with fiber rich environments suit organizations seeking geo-security and system flexibility.
