Thoracic Surgeon, Assistant Professor, Hofstra Northwell School of Medicine
I was pleasantly surprised by the feedback I received from the C-SATS platform. The scoring method was very objective and allowed me to anonymously compare my skill to those of my colleagues. I believe a platform like this could be helpful to all surgeons as we continuously strive to deliver better patient care.

I've found the C-SATS reviews to be very helpful in improving my surgical skill. Knowing the reviews are blinded creates a safe environment for surgeons to receive ongoing feedback that will aid their improvement. I'm currently scheduling a tele-mentoring session and look forward to connecting with one of their experts in a one-to-one session.

C-SATS' video evaluation technology is appealing for 2 reasons: first, it's relevant to surgeons. Second, these are video recordings of real robotic surgery cases. They're not simulations.
C-SATS is offering surgeons a valid evaluation tool; an improvement approach that's tailored to their individual performance. It's not one-size-fits-all. And I believe that the tailored feedback helps you continually improve.
Dr. Catherine Hunter
Gynecologist, MultiCare Women's Health Care
It was almost like taking a master class in robotics. The comments were excellent and I'm implementing a lot of changes. This really makes me look at what I'm doing and push myself to do more and do it better.
Dr. Raj Kotak
General Surgeon, Florida Hospital North Pinellas
At first, I wan't sure if C-SATS would be beneficial to me. I had performed over 150 robotic cases and felt comfortable with my technique. But after being a part of the pilot, I found great feedback that both validated and improved my approach. Uploading videos is quick, easy, and confidential. Feedback is expeditious and has valuable advice.

Medical Director of Robotic Surgery for Providence Health and Services
Institutions have the responsibility to ensure that their surgeons demonstrate technical competency before allowing them to perform surgery. C-SATS is the only system I know of that can provide me with accurate, unbiased, and objective data on a surgeon's technical skill, allowing me to make more informed decisions about my staff.
Dr. Steven Greenberg
Gynecologist, Florida Hospital Tampa
I just started using C-SATS a few weeks ago and have been pleased with the feedback. I have been doing robotics for about 5 years and feel very comfortable with my techniques but have always strived to learn more efficient and safer techniques.
In this situation, I can get ideas and recommendations from gynecologist all over the country. It is easy to upload and feedback is prompt.
Dr. Eric Yang
General Surgeon, Co-Director of Robotics, La Grange Hospital
At first I was hesitant and suspicious about the value of C-SATS. But after uploading a few cases, I found the feedback prompt and valuable. The comments and suggestions helped me recognize areas that needed improvement and after focusing on these, my scores have improved.
Dr. Joel Cornfield
Urologist, Hinsdale Hospital
I'm thrilled with the tele-mentoring session and the feedback. My session with Dr. Abaza was both pleasant and informative. I would most definitely talk to him again.
