Bunda Hospital Jakarta, Pioneer Technology Robotic Surgery
Bunda Hospital Jakarta is the first hospital in Indonesia to implement the technology robotic surgery (robotic surgery). Through this technological paradigm is expected to change the patient about the surgery, postoperative morbidity can be reduced, the precision and accuracy will be higher operation that eventually led to the optimal operation.
This program has been operating since January 2012 to specialize in a wide range of disciplines that is Benign Gynecology, womb cancer, Urology Surgery, Digestive Surgery.
According to Dr Ivan R MD FRANZCOG Here GDRM SpOG, Director of Product Development & Technology Bundamedik Healthcare System, RS Bunda, Menteng Jakarta, the use of surgical robotic technology has advantages not possessed in conventional surgery such as invasive surgery and laparoscopy.
Advantages of robotic surgery include surgery to minimize injury, provide facilities to ensure there is bleeding, cover areas that are hard to spot and minimize postoperative trauma.
But he said, not all surgery can be done with a robotic surgical techniques. Because in addition to considerable cost, robotic surgery is usually used for complex cases, such as heart surgery, prostate surgery, uterine surgery, and urinary tract and gastrointestinal surgery.
Supervision of robotic surgical machine is also very concerned, to prevent the error when the operating system takes place. "In Indonesia, the use of robotic surgery is still new, but we hope the doctors can increase public confidence in Indonesia, to opt for treatment at home than abroad in the presence of this new technology," added Dr Ivan.
Robotic surgical techniques have been developed since the 1990's where in the United States its use is very routinely performed on various types of surgery such as hysterectomy (remove uterus), myomectomy (removal of myoma), radical prostatectomy (prostate cancer surgery) and others.
Clinical studies have shown an increase in satisfaction with the outcome both in terms of the patient and clinician. Although there is no guarantee for the full success of the operation and the different variations of each individual patient, there is an increasing trend overall results of operations.
This surgery he said, can not be done without any role of the surgeon. Machine should be fully controlled by the surgeon. With control and articulation of the hand and the doctor finger, hand in hand with the robot will move freely like a doctor's hand inside the cavity of the operation such as the abdominal cavity.
With the technology of three-dimensional visualization as seen by the surgeon would feel like doing direct operations. High degree of precision which gives detailed information about tissue pathology surgery operations performed. Removal of the tumor would be more appropriate and would be very little bleeding.
Surgical robotic hand is equipped with a mini (small arms) and a high resolution camera which is controlled by a physician with a monitor and drive motor. The surgery requires only a small tear (about 1 cm) for each mini hand and the camera enters the body.
Recovery will take place very quickly because at least the doctor to maneuver around the network and at least an extension of bleeding hand made by machine robot assist physicians in determining who should be treated tissue and healthy tissue where it is difficult with conventional surgery and MIS surgery.
Some of the first patients have been through this robotic surgery with excellent results. Mother Hospital has also been
conduct training of physicians who are members of the team ARMIS (Advanced Robotic and Minimally Invasive) consisting of Dr. Ivan R. Here MD FRANZCOG GDRM SpOG Dr Wachju Hadisaputra SpOG KFER Dr Andi Darma Putra SpOG Dr Agi Satria Onk K P, SpB Dr Reno Rudiman KBD KBD MSc SpB FINACS FICS Dr Rahmat B Santoso SpU Dr Irham Suheimi SpOG Dr. True SpOG Cepi SpOG Dr. Dr. Iwa Kartiwa Hendi SpU
Training is done at home and abroad such as Singapore, Hongkong and Korea. The doctors are experts in each field who will be a pioneer in the field of surgery using this Robotic Surgery System. Mother in hospital operating costs will be much less expensive than the financing in Singapore and Malaysia. It is expected the people of Indonesia will have the option of residing in the country, in doing this robotic surgery.
In other countries, like Singapore, robotic surgery can cost around 150 million dollars and 130 million dollars in Malaysia, while in RS Bunda, will cost about 60 million dollars. (PR)
