Team IntelliVision is developing a training module for surgical residents and surgeons to learn to perform laparoscopic cholecystectomy.

Dr. Makam expects that when they are able to deliver this surgical training module, surgeons will be able to reduce pain and bleeding, as well as a quicker recovery, in patients through the use of laparoscopic techniques.  

“The Discovery Award will provide not only financial support to help us achieve our goal, but also moral support from experts around the world,” says Dr. Ramesh Makam. “We know we will be able to face whatever technical challenges we may come across through this process.”
