  • Less pain: due to the precision of the instruments, patients experience less postoperative pain.
  • Reduced scarring: smaller incisions result in less visible scars.
  • Faster recovery: recovery time is significantly reduced compared to traditional surgery.
  • Reduced risk of complications: the precision of the system reduces the risk of infection, bleeding and other complications.

Our Doctors

At UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital, patients have access to the Mako robotic system, a cutting-edge technological innovation specifically developed for orthopedic surgery. This system is primarily used for arthroplasty surgeries, such as knee or hip replacement, offering unprecedented precision and customization.

The Mako system uses a 3-D scan of the patient to create a virtual model of the joint to be operated on. This advanced technology allows surgeons to plan the surgery in a detailed and customized manner, tailoring it to each patient's specific anatomical needs.

During surgery, the Mako system guides surgeons with pinpoint accuracy, improving the accuracy of movements and minimizing the risk of errors. The result is a highly precise and tailored surgery that improves surgical outcomes and reduces recovery time for patients.

Advantages of Robotic Surgery with the Mako System

Opting for surgery with the Mako robotic system offers numerous benefits, including:

  • Personalized planning: 3D scanning allows detailed and personalized planning of the surgery.
  • Pinpoint accuracy: the system guides surgeons with extreme accuracy, reducing the risk of errors.
  • Better surgical outcomes: the precision of the Mako contributes to superior surgical outcomes.
  • Reduced recovery time: patients can benefit from faster recovery than with traditional surgery.
  • Less postoperative pain: precision and less invasiveness reduce pain after surgery.
  • Reduced risk of complications: the Mako's advanced technology decreases the risk of complications, such as infection and bleeding.

The Symani robotic system represents one of the most advanced techniques in robotic surgery, currently available in Italy at only two centers, including UPMC Salvator Mundi International Hospital.

This tele-operated robotic platform is designed for open microsurgery and super microsurgery, offering unprecedented precision and unique versatility.

The Symani system consists of a robotic cart with two arms, an ergonomic console with handpieces and foot pedals for precise control of movements, and NanoWrist instruments, the smallest in the world, which enhance and expand the surgeon's hand movements. These instruments enable the surgeon to perform anastomoses, sutures, and ligations of small anatomical structures with millimeter precision.

Available Surgical Specialties

The Symani robot is used in several specialty areas, offering advanced solutions for:

  • Reconstructive Plastic Surgery: tissue repair and reconstruction.
  • Orthopedic Surgery: treatment of musculoskeletal conditions.
  • Head And Neck Surgery: complex surgeries in delicate areas.
  • Lymphatics Surgery (LVA/VLNT): treatment of lymphedema and other lymphatic pathologies.
  • Peripheral Nerve Surgery: repair of damaged nerves.
  • Pediatric Surgery: operations on pediatric patients with high precision.
  • Diabetic Foot Surgery: treatment of complications of diabetes.
  • Hand Surgery: surgeries for diseases and traumas of the hand.
  • Reimplantation: reimplantation of amputated limbs and segments.

Advantages of Robotic Surgery with the Symani System

The Symani system offers numerous advantages for surgeons:

  • Precision and Stability: the system eliminates hand tremor, ensuring extremely precise movements.
  • Movement Control: improves control during complex procedures.
  • Comfort: reduces fatigue during lengthy microsurgical procedures.
  • Accessibility: elongated instruments allow you to reach deep, difficult-to-treat areas.
  • Quick Learning: intuitive design facilitates a faster learning curve.

And for patients:

  • Less Tissue Damage: procedures are less invasive, reducing tissue trauma.
  • Reduced Additional Procedures: high precision decreases the need for subsequent interventions.
  • Increased Safety: improved control and stability reduce the risk of complications.
  • Reduced Risk of Infection: the precision and efficiency of the system reduce operation time, minimizing the risk of postoperative infection.
