ff who wish to be trained on leading-edge technologies and techniques," Fagin said. "The center's focus, which goes beyond the operating room to include research and training related to the consistency and quality of patient care through the Robotic Institute University, makes it the first of its kind in the world."

As one of the top five robotic surgeons in the world, Fagin has served as the senior medical advisor for Intuitive Surgical®, the global leader in the field of robotic-assisted, minimally invasive surgery, for the past two years. He has performed more than 2,100 robotic-assisted surgeries, as well as trained surgeons from around the world. Patients have traveled from 32 states and 12 countries to be treated by him. For the past six years, Fagin has performed surgery live for the American Urology Association's international meetings, as an expert in his field.

"Dr. Fagin is highly respected in the field of robotic-assisted surgery, and we are proud that he will be part of the leadership for this institute," Don Wilkerson, chief executive officer of St. David's North Austin Medical Center, said. "With his expertise, and that of our other physicians, we are establishing a true hub for robotic surgery right here in Central Texas."

Courses at the Robotic Institute University are scheduled to begin in summer 2011, with the intent to expand to other St. David's HealthCare facilities in the future. University instruction will incorporate a variety of learning environments including didactic coursework, operating room observations and backstage looks at the workings of the Texas Institute for Robotic Surgery at St. David's North Austin Medical Center and its key people.

St. David's North Austin Medical Center is committed to meeting any educational and training needs of the institute, Wilkerson said, including the recruitment of additional surgeons and staff, an eventual four-operating room expansion and the purchase of addition
