What are the benefits to patients of having surgery done by a surgical robot?


In recent years, with the rapid development of medical technology level, 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 laparoscopic, orthopedic, pan-vascular, trans-natural lumen, percutaneous puncture robots, etc., and the first two types of products are the most mature. So, what are the benefits of surgical robots doing surgery for patients?

First of all, it is necessary to clarify the robotic surgery, the robot is still doing auxiliary operations in the operation, preoperative based on three-dimensional C-shaped arm and other imaging scans to get the three-dimensional data of the skeletal structure, surgical robotic system using surgical planning software, guide the doctor to visualize the pre-surgical planning (nail path planning, into the nail angle), select the appropriate screw specifications, size, assist in the assessment and timely adjustment of the surgical path planning and design, and the surgical robot is not only a good choice for the patient, but also for the surgeon. The entire surgery is operated under the control of the surgeon in charge. Surgical robotic system is not only reliable, but also improves the safety of surgery, the precision of the robotic arm and force sensing recognition, real-time dynamic tracking and other protection technologies, increasing the accuracy and safety of surgery.

Take the Perlove Medical Orthopedic Surgical Robot PL300B as an example, the orthopedic surgical robot can ensure sub-millimeter accuracy, for example, implanting pedicle screws in the spine, traditional surgery needs to expose the anatomy of the bone tissue, often with 10-20cm openings, and with the use of the surgical robot can transform the openings into several 1-2cm openings, bleeding is reduced to more than 95%, greatly reducing the This greatly reduces the incidence of complications and facilitates faster postoperative recovery.

In addition, the use of orthopedic surgical robots for surgery results in less radiation exposure to the patient. Conventional surgeons must use extensive intraoperative fluoroscopy to determine the location of implants to ensure accurate placement. With a surgical robot, only three preoperative, intraoperative and postoperative fluoroscopies are usually required, effectively reducing radiation damage to the patient.

Why use a surgical robot? Many doctors can do just as good a job without a robot!

Many people may have this question. However, for the same procedure, there may be differences in experience and technique between different doctors. For very experienced senior doctors, after years of practice and experience, they don’t need a surgical robot to make the surgery beautiful, but for young, less experienced doctors, by using a surgical robot to standardize the key steps in the surgical process, it allows young doctors to achieve a high level of surgical results as well, and reduces the risk of uncertainty brought about by a lack of experience. All in all, the surgical robot is an advanced tool that frees the doctor’s eyes and hands, allowing him to perform surgeries with greater ease!
