What are the advantages and limitations of the clinical application of orthopaedic surgery robots?


This 5 yellow violence series of American drama, an episode is addictive, please watch in a private environmentThe orthopedic surgical robot is one of the earlier surgical robots in human history, and as a new type of surgical tool, it can assist doctors in minimally invasive orthopedic surgery. Usually only a few tiny incisions need to be made, which no longer requires extensive peeling of skin, muscles and nerves, significantly reducing the amount of bleeding and the dose of radiation received by the patient, and an operation that takes only about 2/3 of the original time. It speeds up the postoperative recovery and reduces the length of hospital stay and the occurrence of complications.

The orthopedic surgery robot system mainly includes: main control computer system, optical tracking system and robotic arm host.

Optical tracking system: It is the “eyes” of the robot, which can help the doctor to see every depth of the bone and monitor every step of the surgery in real time.

Robotic arm: It is the “arm” of the orthopedic surgery robot, with flexible movement and stable operation, and can reach sub-millimeter precision, making the surgeon perform surgery more stably and naturally.

The main control computer system: like the robot’s “brain”, it can convey the doctor’s ideas to the main body of the robot arm and the optical tracking system.

What are the advantages and limitations of the clinical application of orthopedic surgery robots?

Compared with traditional orthopaedic surgery, the advantages of orthopaedic surgery robots are as follows:

1. High precision: The orthopedic surgery robot can achieve high-precision positioning and operation of the surgical site through high-precision sensors and control systems, thus reducing surgical errors and trauma.

2. Small trauma: Because of the fine operation of the orthopedic surgery robot, it can reduce the damage to the surrounding tissues during surgery and shorten the recovery time of patients.

As shown in the above comparison, compared with traditional surgery, the surgical wound with the orthopedic surgery robot is changed from an incision of 30 cm in front and behind to a small incision of about 2 cm, which shortens the operation time by more than 50%, reduces bleeding by more than 95%, and greatly reduces the incidence of surgical complications.

3. Good repeatability: The orthopedic surgery robot can realize the standardization and standardization of the surgical process, thus ensuring the repeatability and stability of the surgical results.

4. High safety: The orthopedic surgery robot can reduce accidents and mishaps during surgery through the automated control system and safety devices.

With the integrated adaptive alignment technology, the P&E Medical flatbed 3D C-arm + orthopedic surgery robot can achieve automatic registration and alignment, and the accuracy is not affected by the image quality. The clinical accuracy reaches sub-millimeter level (0.7mm), which has the advantages of high positioning accuracy and small surgical incision compared with traditional surgery, and helps orthopedic surgery to be intelligent; after years of R&D accumulation, it has made a new breakthrough in the core technology, and is the first in the industry in terms of clinical accuracy and has unique advantages in safety and surgical efficiency.

However, there are some limitations in the clinical application of current orthopedic surgery robots: 1:

1. high cost: compared with traditional orthopedic surgery equipment, the cost of orthopedic surgery robots is higher, requiring hospitals to invest larger amounts of money, and is mostly applicable to large tertiary hospitals.

2. Need for professional operation: domestic and foreign products are in the semi-automated stage of robot-assisted, human is not yet able to implement the whole process, fully automated surgery, and is still in the semi-automated stage that requires physician intervention.

3. Requirement for patient’s body type: Since the orthopedic surgery robot needs to be precisely positioned and operated during the surgery, it needs patients with certain skeletal morphology and body type characteristics to ensure the accuracy and safety of the surgery.
