All the operations of a Da Vinci robot

Over the past decade, medical technology has not simply stepped forward and changed radically. The first step was the emergence of minimally invasive surgery. It helped to reduce the injury rate and rehabilitation period. The next step was the implementation of robotic systems. In the late 80-ies of the robot was made for the US army. Now worldwide operates more than 3,000 robotic surgery. Da Vinci helped to simplify complex operations and translate them from the group of complex to routine, and create new types of surgical interventions that were previously impossible.

What is a robot surgeon Da Vinci

the Robot used to carry out a laparoscopy. It consists of a control panel, operating panel and optical system. The surgeon with the control panel directs the robot. The powerful cameras allow the surgeon to see a 3D image of the surgical field. Positive aspects in the work of Da Vinci:

high precision. Excellent handling; movement of the surgeon's hands are presented to the robot; the robot manipulators to have a greater range of motion than the hand of man; no tremor; the surgeon at the console working while sitting, which helps to reduce fatigue and to maintain a high level performance; excellent image quality in a 3D format. The types of operations carried out by Da Vinci robot

the Use of robot-surgeon gives you the possibility to do operations of high complexity,

surgical intervention is performed in the area of the armpit; stored voice nerves; minimal complications, side effects. There are almost no scars. The main directions prostatectomy; nephrectomy; partial nephrectomy; cystectomy; pyeloplasty. Procedures and operations with the Da Vinci robot for offices

Gynecology. Precancerous and cancerous diseases. Removal of the uterus.

Cardiac surgery. Reconstruction of the mitral valve. Ablation of tissue. Myocardial revascularization. The installation of an electronic pacemaker.

Gastro. Gastro-intestinal tract. Pancreas and liver. The gastric bypass surgery.

Colorectal surgery. Cancer of the colon or rectum. Diverticulitis. Ulcerative colitis. Crohn's Disease.

Thoracic surgery. Neoplasms of the lung.

General surgery. Obesity. Hernia. Gallbladder disease – tumors, removal of the gallbladder.

Plastic surgery. Different types of operations in plastic (mainly Onco-plastic).

Urology. In adenoma and carcinoma of the prostate, urinary incontinence.

the Advantages for the patient

What are the advantages for the patient is the use of a robot surgeon:

the low degree of trauma due to the small incisions; reducing the degree of blood loss; reduction of periods of hospitalization and rehabilitation; low degree of threat of complications; virtually invisible scars.

Robot surgeon is continuously improved. The latest versions provide new opportunities. Improving the quality of the image, the robot is equipped with a new tool. To carry out the operation and observe it two surgeons. The robot becomes more maneuverable and manageable. As you can see, technology does not stand still and new solutions to serious problems. In the future will be found more effective technologies of treatment of various diseases.
