Robots or doctors to perform surgery, which should we choose?


In recent years, with the rapid development of the level of medical technology, robot-assisted surgery, as an emerging surgical method, has been frequently applied in many surgical fields. According to the clinical application areas, surgical robots can be divided into luminal, orthopaedic, pan-vascular, trans-natural lumen, percutaneous puncture robots, etc. The first two types of products are the most mature.

So what are the benefits of robotic surgery for patients?

First of all, it needs to be clear that the robotic surgery, the robot in the operation or to do auxiliary operations, preoperative based on three-dimensional C-shaped arm and other image scanning to get the three-dimensional data of the skeletal structure, the robot system using surgical planning software, guiding the doctor to carry out visualisation of pre-surgical planning (nailing planning, into the angle of the nails), to select the appropriate screw specifications, size, assist in the assessment and timely adjustment of the surgical path planning and design, the whole set of The whole surgery is operated under the control of the main surgeon. The robotic system is not only reliable, but also improves the safety of the surgery, the precision of the robotic arm, and the force sensing recognition, real-time dynamic tracking and other protection technologies, increasing the accuracy and safety of the surgery.

Taking the medical orthopaedic robot Perlove Medical PL300B as an example, the orthopaedic robot can ensure sub-millimetre precision. For example, when implanting pedicle screws in the spine, traditional surgery needs to expose the anatomical structure of the bone tissues, and there is often an opening of 10-20cm, but with the use of a surgical robot, the opening can be transformed into a number of 1-2cm openings, and the amount of bleeding can be reduced to more than 95%, which greatly reduces the rate of complications, and also contributes to the patient’s quicker post-surgical recovery.

Many people may have this question. However, there may be differences in experience and approach between different doctors operating the same procedure. For very experienced senior doctors, after years of practice and experience, they don’t need a surgical robot to do a beautiful job, but for younger, less experienced doctors, the use of a robot to standardise the key steps in the surgical process allows young doctors to achieve a high level of surgical results and reduces the risk of uncertainty brought about by inexperience. All in all, the surgical robot is a more advanced tool that frees up the doctor’s eyes and hands, allowing him or her to perform surgeries with greater ease.
