Born the first Chair in Oncology Robotic Surgery Abdominal Spain
HM hospitals, the San Pablo CEU University and Palex Medical has created the first professorship in Robotic Surgery Abdominal Oncology of Spain that will be led by Drs. Vicente Emilio and Yolanda Quijano, Director and co-director of the General Service and Digestive Surgery Hospital Universitario Madrid Sanchinarro., An initiative to promote an improvement in the treatment of abdominal cancer.
The chair, created thanks to a collaboration agreement signed by Prof. Dr. Juan Martinez Lopez de Letona, president of the Hospital de Madrid Foundation; the Magfco, and Hon. Mr. Juan Carlos Dominguez
Nafría, rector of San Pablo CEU University; and Dr. Xavier Carbonell, CEO of Palex Medical,
"Confirms the absolute success of the oncology program Comprehensive Cancer Center Clara Campal (CIOCC) in general and surgical oncology program of the Department of General and Digestive Surgery, directed by Dr. Emilio Vicente and Yolanda Quijano" Directors also of the chair said Dr. Juan Abarca Cidón, CEO of HM hospitals, in presenting the initiative.
Start the first chair of Spain on abdominal pathology continued, "give a major boost to approach this type of process, since both cost and hospital stays, and unlike other specialties in which has been called into question the cost-effectiveness of robotic surgery in the abdominal cancer surgery technique, handled by the right hands, relationship is completely favorable ".
As explained the CEO of HM hospitals, in its first year of operation the program robotic abdominal surgery HM hospitals has made over 30 interventions in cancer processes, "with savings on stays of approximately 20% over other techniques surgical approach and savings
costs in some processes has reached 25%, which confirms that, in addition to increasing patient safety, cost-effectiveness is clearly demonstrated in interventions with robotic surgery. "
Cutting-edge medical technology at no extra cost
And, he said, "HM Hospital aims to support their clinical work with the contribution of new innovations from the private sector to serve the community at large, so this breakthrough in robotic surgery abdominal believe we have fully successful in this goal. " This partnership between HM Hospitals, San Pablo CEU University and Palex Medical "is another example of a strategy of establishing partnerships between private companies that will undoubtedly add value and magnify the role of private health care in the system Spanish health "and is the fifth research chair HM hospitals that starts with the San Pablo CEU University, confirming" the excellence of the whole model of both entities. "
Specifically, since the chair is to provide the necessary scientific information on robotic surgery in the surgical treatment of localized in the abdominal area cancer, and among its objectives the implementation of programs in research, development and innovation are included aimed at improving the treatment of abdominal cancer, scientific dissemination of robotic surgery in his approach and further training of specialists and doctors in this type of surgery.
Doctors Vicente Emilio and Yolanda Quijano, who make up the team manager of the department, provided data that highlighted "the importance of treating patients with these tumors, especially of the pancreas, as CIOCC centers where available all the most advanced ", and stressed including the Da Vinci robot, which" represents the most advanced method of minimally invasive surgery "diagnostic and therapeutic options.
Specifically, "the use of the robot in pancreatic surgery are associated with excellent results in terms of postoperative morbidity and mortality, length of stay and cost of the process," he said, adding that robotic surgery "has an excellent future for the treatment of the disease , hepato-pancreatic it either benign or malignant.
