Da Vinci Robot: Minimally Invasive Robotic Surgery

HM Hospitales has launched its Robotic Surgery Program by acquiring a Da Vinci surgical robot. The most sophisticated and innovative surgery techniques.

HM Hospitales has launched its Robotic Surgery Program by acquiring a Da Vinci surgical robot, installed at Hospital Universitario HM Sanchinarro . The purpose of this initiative is: to make this the latest-generation technology and its associated advantages available to all our patients, and to be in a position to remain at the forefront of surgical treatment over the next decade.

The Da Vinci surgical robot is the most sophisticated and innovative minimally invasive surgical device on the market today; offering the same or better results than conventional surgery, plus the advantages of a minimally invasive procedure.

Advantages of minimally invasive surgery

  • Faster recovery after the operation.
  • A reduced level of post-operative pain.
  • Less scarring, since abdominal incisions don't need to be as large.
  • Quick return to everyday activities.
  • Shorter hospitalization period.
  • Lower risk of infection and other complications.

The surgical robot Da Vinci is a sophisticated robotic platform in which the surgeon directs the robot´s arms from a console, by means of manual controls and pedals, using a stereoscopic vision system. The Da Vinci robot helps the surgeon in the performance of highly complex surgeries through minimally invasive surgery.

By aligning the professional eye, their hand and the tip of the instrument, you get an intuitive control of the technique, more natural than in laparoscopic surgery and similar to that of open surgery. The movements of the surgeon's hand are measured, filtered and translated into the robotic arms and instruments

Components of the Da Vinci robot

  • The surgical console, in which the surgeon sits watching the surgical field through a binocular device.
  • The patient's tower with articulated robotic arms for instruments and optics.
  • The vision tower, which incorporates a tactical panoramic screen (which extends the field of vision), a light source and electrical devices.

The Da Vinci surgical robot is equipped with instruments that enable a greater range of movement and more precision than those used for open abdominal surgery, or even laparoscopic surgery, facilitating anatomical dissection and removal of the affected organ. Thanks to its state-of-the-art camera, this emerging laparoscopic technology allows a detailed visualization of the operative field by enlarging the 3D images.

Main technical advantages of the Da Vinci surgical robot

  • Three-dimensional view.
  • Four arms to hold the endoscopic instruments and the camera, unsusceptible to shaking and dropping.
  • Extremely mobile endoscopic instruments enabling intracorporeal movements to be made in every direction, intuitively simulating the movements of a human hand.

Beside Da Vinci Robot, our Surgical team and HM Hospitales incorporate 3D technology and personalizes its oncological surgery allowing planning the interventions that gain precision and safety.


Development of 3D models

For each patient, an exact replication of the organs and structures into which the tumor or tumors are integrated is performed so that it is possible to perfectly visualize the lesion before opening to proceed with surgery. In this way, it is possible to know its exact size and location, as well as the degree of vascular involvement, among other variables. With all this, you can plan the intervention precisely before opening. As Yolanda Quijano, co-director of the General Digestive Surgery Service at this hospital, explained, "it is as if we had a personal atlas for each patient." In certain tumors, for example, those that affect the liver, 3D models are especially useful since it is an opaque organ.

Robotic surgery is also applied to others areas like urology.
