Some hospitals in rich countries, with medical technology now have the robotic surgery. Robotic surgery technology is used for surgical purposes, among others, to myomectomy (taking tumors in the uterus), hysterectomy (uterus cuts that hurt), cystectomy (cyst taking), even to correct congenital abnormalities of the uterus that cause recurrent miscarriages. So what are the advantages of robotic surgery?
The advantages of robotic surgery are:
- Minimal risk, safe, and faster done.
- Not leaving a long incision, such as surgical operations normally. So for the purposes of gynecologic surgery, the women do not need to worry because this technique does not leave scars are large and unsightly.
- Robot hands to perform the operation claimed to be more precise, and have a wider degree of motion than the human arm.
- When sewing the organ, the pull strength of the robot makes stitching more fitting. Robotic surgery does not cause trauma to the organs of the body and not cause an abscess (infection) of the reproductive organs.
One is the Da Vinci robotic surgery, was in Singapore. How to work with robotic surgery is to make few holes in the abdomen, each of 8 millimeters in diameter. These holes are used to enter the “hands” Da Vinci robot. These arms are replacing the function of the hands of doctors. There is also a camera to see every action robotic arms inside the patient.
Doctors still play a role in controlling the tool. The whole movement of the arms of the robot will be controlled by a doctor via the console. Display of organs and the movement of the tool viewed through a monitor that displays images of three-dimensional (3D) in the console. The involvement of doctors was profitable. Patients do not need to worry about something happening to their body. Cause if anything happens, the doctor immediately took over.
There are a lot of the advantages of robotic surgery, especially for operations around the female reproductive organs. Operation seems to be easier with this robot technology, probably as easy as one learns how to make an omelette.
