Robotic Surgery

Robot-assisted surgery:
Comfort and safety

Robotic surgery is a sophistication of laparoscopy – (a technique that requires the use of microcameras). Surgical intervention, in this case, is performed using a robot. 

The machine, however, does not operate alone. It reproduces the movements of the specialist surgeon. With the help of an assistant surgeon, who is at the patient's side to introduce and exchange the robotic clamps, the surgery is performed.

This type of operation has several advantages over conventional open surgery, such as stable vision, in three dimensions, increased by up to 15 times. There is also greater freedom and extreme precision of fine movements, without tremors, allowing for delicate dissection of fundamental structures that are performed by an articulated arm.

The result is a post-operative period with less pain, swelling and bleeding, as the cuts in this type of procedure are much more precise. As it is a minimally invasive technique, providing shorter hospital stays and faster patient recovery, the use of the robot provides numerous advantages.
