LARGE PRESENCE SERVICE General and Digestive Surgery HMS IN CONGRESS OF SURGERY ROBOTICS AND AMERICAN COLLEGE OF SURGEONS
At the meeting of the service robotic surgery directed by Dr. Emilio Vicente and Yolanda Quijano he presented seven works, two more than last year, developed under the first Chair in Oncology Robotic Surgery Abdominal EspañaAl same meeting showed that work was carried the overall experience in robotic surgery of this said service, which has been made since the first 150 cases, of which 97% were tumor processes malignosEl General Surgery and Digestive HMS is the only Spanish group with extensive experience General treatment with robotic support colon, rectum, stomach, esophagus, pancreas and hígadoUna of communications at the congress explained the organizational model of HMS and its Department of General and Digestive Surgery which facilitates the development of surgery robotics in the center and allowing achieve a high level of this technique in the treatment of digestive tumors
Madrid, October 28, 2013. The Department of General Surgery and Digestive HM University Sanchinarro (HMS) has had a wide and active participation in two of the most important international scientific citations in the specialty: the 5th Congress Clinical Robotic Surgery Association, held on 4 and 5 October and the last congress of the American College of Surgeons, held from 6 to 9 March.
Thus, at the meeting of robotic surgery service led by Drs Vicente Emilio and Yolanda Quijano he presented seven works (two more than last year), developed as part of the first Chair in Oncology Robotic Surgery Abdominal Spain, created at the beginning Hospitals year by HM the San Pablo CEU University and Palex Medical.
Among the communications presented which showed that highlight the experience of this team in pancreatic surgery with robotic support - "the most important national and tenth in the world," say the experts; and in liver surgery with the surgical robot, in the words of Vincent and Quijano, "it is also the only and most important of Spain, occupying thirteenth place worldwide." "Both very good results in terms of comfort for the patient and shorter hospital stay," added the charge of General Surgery and Digestive HMS.
At the congress of the Association of the most important in the world and welcomes all surgeons performing this discipline within said specialty, Robotic Surgery Clinic work that showed the overall experience robotic surgery of that service were also presented, where you have already completed the first 150 cases, of which 97% were malignant tumors.
In this regard, experts materialize his team has tried colon, rectum, stomach, esophagus, pancreas and liver, which makes them "the only group in Spain with the overall experience, compared to other groups, which are specialized in one of these specific organs. "
A model that develops robotic surgery
Finally, he led by Quijano Vincent and video service also led to widespread encounter with liver surgical techniques (the first one was made in Spain) and pancreatic cancer (the second held in our country) and a communication presented the organizational model HMS and its Department of General and Digestive Surgery, in the framework of Robotic Surgery Hospitals HM-since launch in October 2010 with the installation of a modern HMS Da Vinci surgical robot, "makes clear the development of robotic surgery in the middle "and is it possible to achieve a high level of this technique in the treatment of digestive tumors in his words.
Some of the foundations of this organizational model is the availability of robotic surgical area depending on the need and nature of preference of medical processes that require treatment with robotic surgery, not by criteria of specialization; the increase in the number of surgeons with skills and training to develop robotic surgery, as five of the eight surgeons perform this team with some regularity robotic surgery; the absence of air of 'surgical subspecialty' within the service, which allows surgeons to continuously increase their expertise, making numerous surgical techniques on different organs and pathologies; and the "pursuit of innovation, to learn new procedures and technologies and develop and consolidate robotic surgery, prevailing medical interest on the economic" driven not only by the service, but also by the center and HM hospitals, experts say.
In this sense, to give the most complete care possible to their patients, HM Hospital adds to its commitment to the complexity in interventions and surgical techniques strategy extra effort to set different health-edge technologies, including interventions carried out robotic surgery in abdominal oncology at no extra cost to their patients.
Moreover, just a few days later, the Department of General Surgery and Digestive HMS presented at the congress of the American College of Surgeons his surgical techniques, among which the venous resection in pancreatic surgery, which constitute the series more important of Spain, according to data handled by doctors Vincent and Quijano.
The subject of two other papers presented at this scientific meeting were the intestinal autotransplantation in the treatment of malignant and benign processes stenotic cervical esophagus, in which the service led by these two experts "is the only group of Spanish General Surgery who performs" and it has an important experience; and surgical treatment technique giant esophageal polyp transorally, conducted in collaboration with the Department of Gastroenterology, "a unique and spectacular case, since no more than 100 described in the world, and a maximum of five have been treated with this technique, "the researchers conclude.
