More than 700 people watched the broadcast in the hall, the Internet audience amounted to more than 15000 people. A master class on robotic operations was held as part of the congress.
The first robot-assisted resection of the right kidney was performed by Mikhail Mosoyan, Head of the Center for Robotic Surgery, Head of the Department of Urology with a course of robotic surgery of the Medical Faculty of the Institute of Medical Education of the Almazov Center (St. Petersburg), Professor of the Department of Urology of Pavlov State Medical University.

- In the operations being conducted today, within the framework of the congress, we teach not only our own physicians, we teach on our experience and our technologies, the doctors of the world. In modern conditions, it is important that Russian doctors revive the forgotten movement of "doctors for peace". Peaceful technologies make it possible to save a person's life in Ufa and at the same time contribute to sharing experience with doctors from all over the world.
We are still the only robotic surgery center in the Volga Federal District. Today, more than a thousand patients are being treated with the help of advanced surgical technologies. More than five thousand foreign students who study at the university receive knowledge based on the most advanced medical technologies. Our students, as part of the Priority 2030 program and projects of the world-class Eurasian Research and Education Center, have the opportunity to participate in advanced research, to be on the frontier of medical science. I am sure that in the near future, we will operate on Russian robotic systems," said Valentin Pavlov, Rector of the University.
