da Vinci Robotic Surgery

Robotic surgery has reached a remarkable milestone in the development of non-invasive surgical procedures and robotics research. This video is presented by Dr. Pam Paley, a gynecologic oncologist at the Swedish Medical Center in Seattle. Dr. Pam Paley discusses robotics assisted minimal-invasive surgery, the preference of this latest technology over open surgical procedures, and suggests advantages to such technology, such as:

  • Avoiding large continuous incisions
  • Better scarring
  • Less blood loss
  • Faster recovery
  • Significantly improved visualization with a 3D view of the operative fields allowing for intricate manoeuvres.

Computer-controlled surgical procedures involve the use of a computer to manipulate the robotic end-effector making remote surgery an exciting possibility.
