A Da Vinci surgical robot was on show at an open event to raise awareness of men's cancers for Blue September at Southmead Hospital in the UK on September 28 2011. Members of the public, former patients, prospective patients, staff and GPs all attended the event to try their hand at robotic surgery.
Super glue: It's good for mending shoe insoles and drawer handles, but how about the human body? Don't try this at home, but doctors can actually use the medical-grade version of this material for fixing certain tiny malfunctions in the brain.
David Robbins, MD Miami urologist and prostate cancer robotic surgery specialist demonstrates nerve sparing for preservation of erectile function during da Vinci robotic prostatectomy.
Complete video demonstration on how to perform Laparoscopic Cholecystectomy under General Anaesthesia, First of all four small incisions are made on abdomen through which operating ports, camera along with light source is passed into abdominal cavity. Carbondioxide is passed under 15 mm of Hg, so as to inflate the abdomen.
The Essure Procedure is a permanent contraception option for women that can be performed in the office with NO incisions or general anesthesia. With much less surgical risk than laparoscopic tubal ligation, the Essure offers women a quick recovery and higher rate of effectiveness at preventing pregnancy.
South Miami Hospital's Center for Robotic Surgery pioneered using the robot for many thoracic procedures, including cancer surgeries in the lungs, esophagus and thymus, as well as for benign lung and esophageal conditions.
The surgeons at Associated Urologists of Orange County include Dr. Garo Tertzakian, Dr. Matthew Greenberger, Dr. William Pearce and Dr.
Prior surgical implants make robotic surgery more challenging. Theoretically, infection risks are higher. We show that the neocapsule around an inflatable reservoir can be preserved while performing a robotic prostatectomy.
Robotic technology allows the tubal reversal procedure (re-anastomosis) to be performed via minimally invasive approach eliminating the need for open surgery with large scars.
