Robotic Abdominal Surgery
Robotic abdominal surgery offers several benefits compared to conventional surgery. Thanks to the precision and flexibility of the robotic arm, surgeons can operate more safely and reduce postoperative pain, risk of complications, and recovery times.
The robotic system used features interactive mechanical arms that follow movements of the surgeon's hands, and a camera arm that allows the surgeon to see a high-definition, magnified view of the procedure. Thanks to this advanced technology, surgeons can make more precise movements, remove tissues more accurately, and repair injuries more effectively than with conventional surgery.
Thanks to the flexibility of the robotic arms, surgeons can reach areas otherwise difficult or impossible to access, making robotic abdominal surgery particularly useful for treating internal organs such as the liver, pancreas and spleen.
Finally, robotic abdominal surgery allows surgeons to operate more safely controlling the movements of the robot in real time. This means surgeons can correct errors or problems during the surgery, thus reducing the risk of postoperative complications.
Procedures that can be performed using robotic abdominal surgery include:
- Hernia surgery.
- Gallbladder surgery.
- Pancreatic surgery.
- Hepatic surgery.
