Dr. Thomas Lendvay is Associate Professor of Urology at the University of Washington and the Co-Director of the Seattle Children’s Hospital Robotic Surgery Center. He is also the Pediatric Urology Fellowship Program Director and directs technical skills simulation education for the urology residency program. His research thrusts center on advancing minimally invasive surgery in pediatric urology and accelerating learning curves for surgical skills among trainees and practicing clinicians across all surgical disciplines. He is the Principal Investigator on a multi-center extramurally funded US Department of Defense grant to test the hypothesis that virtual reality robotic surgery warm-up prior to surgery will enhance the technical skills of practicing robotic surgeons (DoD Award # W81XWH-15-2-0030). Dr. Lendvay has also pioneered the use of crowdsourcing to assess the technical skills of surgeons as a means of breaking down the objective skills assessment barriers of time and cost-intensiveness and to add value to existing credentialing and MOC initiatives. He is Co-Founder of CSATS based in Seattle, WA (a recently acquired entity by Johnson and Johnson Global Training and Education).
