The Hamlyn Symposium on Medical Robotics 2020 ‘Surgery and beyond’ will be held 20th - 23rd June 2020. The conference provides an annual forum for surgeons and engineers from across the globe to network and explore the latest developments in medical robotics.

The symposium will also host a number of satellite workshops on 20th and 23rd June 2020.

The symposium has gained a prominent reputation for presentations, discussion and demonstrations of cutting-edge clinical practice and emerging technologies in robotic surgery.
