HM hospitals still committed robotic surgery with the implementation of surgical equpo DA VINCI
Madrid, 9 February 2015. HM Model Hospital operating rooms are already operating equipment Da Vinci robotic surgery HM hospitals acquired in late 2014 for coruñés center. With this addition, the Model HM Hospital takes a new step forward in its policy of constant technological upgrading and offers Galician society and their physicians the best and safest system to respond to their patients.
Currently, any intervention that can be performed by laparoscopy or thoracoscopy is susceptible of embodiment with the Da Vinci Surgical System, but there are certain specialties procedures, technical complexity, are particularly suitable for implementation with the robot.
It should be noted HM hospitals experience with this surgical system, as the HM Sanchinarro Hospital has a Da Vinci since 2010. In addition, HM Hospital team, led by Dr. Emilio Vicente, received last October first prize in the Surgical Technique for Robotic Surgery World Congress held in San Francisco (USA).
Rise of Robotic Surgery
Long, open surgery was the surgery of choice for surgical indications. Subsequently, with the development of laparoscopic surgery, most interventions could be made using this approach, but open surgery was reserved for a wide variety of complex surgical indications.
It is in these cases where conventional surgery involves a longer significant trauma, along with increased pain and post-surgical recovery, in which robotic surgery may provide more patient, because it combines the effectiveness of open surgery with advantages of minimally invasive surgery, which is the great advantage of robotic surgery.
Thus, robotic surgery improves surgical outcomes in those procedures in which it is correctly stated use. Many of these indications come from cancer surgery, both of urologic tumors, such as gynecological or digestive.
More specifically, the advantages of this surgical system are of two types: those inherent in minimally invasive surgery and their own robot. Among the first highlights the less post-operative pain and risk of infection, decreased complications, length of hospital stay, blood loss and the amount of scarring, and faster recovery. As for the second type of benefits, the Da Vinci means better vision and greater accuracy, reproducibility of surgical procedures and comfort for the surgeon.
