Balance very successful first year of Robotic Surgery Program with Da Vinci
Since the beginning of the use of the surgical robot Da Vinci HM HM University Hospital -located in Sanchinarro (HMS) - A year ago, and there have been 73 interventions with this technique, a number of procedures and above forecasts those who have obtained very good care results, fulfilling the objective of making available to all patients in the private health Madrid this surgical latest technology.
