Mediclinic City Hospital has implemented the da Vinci Xi HD 4 arm robotic system, one of the most sophisticated surgical technologies available for adult and paediatric patients.
Da Vinci robotic surgery is a state of the art surgical procedure in which the conventional laparoscopic technique is combined with high precision robotic technology using four robotic arms which are expertly commanded by the surgeon from the surgical console using a 3D high-definition view of the surgical area. Articulated instruments allow the same movement capacity as the human wrist and the tremor filter eliminates any small uncontrollable movement in the surgeon's hands. Minimally invasive surgery with da Vinci is widely used in general surgery, urology and gynaecology procedures, as well as in several other specialities.
Globally, Mediclinic already has extensive experience in robotic surgery using the da Vinci robotic system and it is now available in the Middle East at Mediclinic City Hospital.
How the da Vinci robotic system works:
The da Vinci robotic system is combination of conventional laparoscopic technique and high precision robotic technology. It uses four robotic arms that are expertly commanded by the surgeon sitting on the console making minute movements inside the body with the help of 3D high definition view for accurate targeting of the surgical area for the procedure.
The da Vinci robotic system has the same movement capacity as the human wrist. The design gives surgeon a better range of motion and dexterity than the human hand. In addition, the tremor filter eliminates any small uncontrollable movement in the surgeon's hands.
Benefits of Robotic surgery for patients include:
- Reduced pain and trauma to patient
- Less blood loss
- Less risk of complications
- Shorter hospital stay
- Lower risk of infection
- Faster recovery and less postoperative pain and discomfort
- Smaller incision leading to minimal scarring
