The Department of General and Digestive Surgery HM University Sanchinarro, was present at the lecture series "Da Vinci Robotic System: applications in different surgical specialties" held at the Royal Academy of Medicine. In the last decade, minimally invasive surgery has brought a revolution in modern surgical practice, in fact, for many years the laparoscopic surgery has been considered as a paradigm of this concept of surgery, but has some limitations compared to robotics.
The lectures focused on robotic surgery and the advantages of laparoscopy versus
• Laparoscopic surgery has several limitations, such as two-dimensional vision and reduced maneuverability. This results in the increase of robotic surgical procedures, which last year accounted for 50 percent of the interventions of rectal cancer, compared to 35 percent who were held by laparoscopy and 15 percent open approach.
• Robotic surgery has been growing and has gone from one used in urology to be used in other areas, changing the concept of surgery
The first Chair in Robotic Surgery Oncology Abdominal Spain, launched in March 2012 as a result of the collaboration agreement signed between HM hospitals, the CEU San Pablo University and Palex Medical, was awarded one of the Prizes to the Best Ideas 2012 granted by Medical Journal.
The intervention carried out in HM University Sanchinarro (HMS) is one of the few in the world made so far
• With this new milestone, HMS, who had already made six types of liver resections children with the help of robotic support, it ranks among the top ten in the world rankings most experienced centers in this complex surgical field
The Department of General Surgery and Digestive HM University Sanchinarro (HMS) recently conducted an assisted right hepatectomy via robotics, which is the first operation of its kind to be conducted in Spain and one of the few in the world made so far because of the 217 liver resections carried out worldwide until last December, only 51 were right hepatectomy and therefore had had similar to that carried out in HM University Sanchinarro features.
Spanish Medical-Surgical Academy has appointed as new Academic institution Number of teachers Jesus Millán and Vicente Emilio occasion of the inaugural session of the Academic Year 2012-2013.
This was announced by the Academy after meeting the Board and analyze the different proposals.
Thus, the body chaired by Professor Luis Ortiz Quintana has given this award to Professor of Medicine at the Complutense University of Madrid (UCM) and Head of Internal Medicine at Hospital Gregorio Maranon de Madrid, Jesús Millán.
At the conference was attended by eight medical residents of 4th and 5th year have been able to do a review of the most frequent surgical pathology of this specialty
• The course was developed in five days in which are grouped patients with rare diseases in order to perform various interventions, although Interventional Radiology talks were also given, and diagnostic and therapeutic endoscopy, among other techniques
The chair, the first of Spain, is the result of the collaboration of HM hospitals, the San Pablo CEU University and Palex Medical, and aims to promote an improvement in the treatment of abdominal cancer
The service has been the only Spanish group present at the meeting, with five communications based on experience with the use of a surgical robot Da Vinci HM hospitals in their specialty
Recent advances aimed at achieving an earlier diagnosis, optimal treatment and proper monitoring of colorectal cancer and a more personalized approach and disease management focused conferences of the V Commemorative Lecture Pitched Clara, held in June in HMS- CIOCC.
