Robotic surgery

The use of robots in the medicine

Robotic surgery is the most advanced technology in the medical world and is used especially in the departments of urology, gynecology, general surgery, otorhinolaryngology (ear, nose, throat), thoracic surgery and cardiovascular surgery

Robotic surgery, known as Da Vinci, is the most advanced technology in the medical world and is used in developed countries such as Turkey, the United States, and the EU, including the departments of urology, gynecology, general surgery, otorhinolaryngology, thoracic surgery, and cardiovascular surgery.

Da Vinci Robot technology stands out with a special privilege that gives doctors and patients one of the most successful surgical methods used to fight cancer worldwide. The robot-assisted method of laparoscopic surgery, known as “robotic surgery”, has three main characteristics.

  • The first is that image screening systems that work with the principle of laparoscopic surgery. Thus, the image is transferred through the patient's body to the surgeon using a camera. Unlike laparoscopic surgery, in robotic surgery, this image is three-dimensional, and because the camera is controlled by a robot, the image is stable. Clear images can be obtained at higher magnification by approaching the organ on which manipulative actions will be performed very carefully.
  • The second is that the surgeon controls the operation of the robot using a control console. The optical cables in the console extend to the robot's arms and transfer the small hand movements made by the surgeon to the robotic arms.
  • The third is that surgical instruments can rotate 540 degrees so that they can move much more freely than the movements of the human hand. In addition, the natural tremor in human hands is not transmitted to the tips of surgical instruments. In this way, human error is also minimised.

Robotic surgery was first used in 1994 in the field of cardiovascular surgery. The most common use was in urological operations. Since 2001, DaVinci has been used in prostate cancer surgery worldwide; It is also used in cases of cancer of the kidneys, bladder and testicles.

The “da Vinci Robotic Surgery” technique is not a purely robot-dependent surgical practice. The experience of the team of surgeons is the most important factor for the success of the operation, whether it consists of open, laparoscopic or robotic procedures. All robotic operations are performed by an experienced team with the methods applied in the most developed centers in the world.

Robotic surgery is used in:

  • Prostate surgery;
  • In kidney tumor;
  • In testicular cancer;
  • In bladder surgery;
  • In gynaecological diseases;
  • In operations of the gastrointestinal system;
  • In general surgery;
  • In cancers;
  • In pancreatic surgery;
  • In bariatric surgery – obesity;
  • In surgery of the ears, nose, throat and head, and
  • Others, according to the possibilities and nature of treatment provided by the attending physician.

Robotic surgery is considered to be the most advanced technology in the last 10 years among minimally invasive operations, used in general surgery, and especially in oncological operations. It reaches the deepest points in the human body during the operation, with a three-dimensional and clear image, providing polygonal mobility with robotic arms and without the presence of natural vibrations of the human hand. It allows the surgeon to control the operation through seven-sized robotic arms and thin small surgical instruments on top of them, in the patient's body undergoing surgery.

qTherapy as an authorised agent has the ability and experience to organise and make an appointment for a primary consultation, as well as to give you detailed information in the preparation and organisation of everything necessary to the smallest detail, so you do not think about organisational steps, and to be calm and prepared in your upcoming robotic surgery procedure in order to achieve optimal results in the necessary treatment.
