Robotic Surgery reduce postoperative complaints
Surgery using robotic technology (Robotic Surgery) became one of the best options for reducing postoperative complaints. With surgery by using one of the most advanced machines in the world of medical personnel, patients will be able to more quickly recover. The magnitude of injury due to surgery is significantly smaller compared with non-robotic surgery.
Robotic surgery process also proved to be more effective and efficient. The sophistication of applications in it makes the accuracy of the doctor in performing the operation becomes higher. The level of pain caused by surgery in patients is also much lower. In addition, the number of blood ejected during the operation process is also no more than 200 milliliters.
"This is a breakthrough technology in the medical field. In the developed countries the technology is already widely used and began to be reliable," said wahyu Hadisaputro, President Indonesian Gynecological Endoscopy Society (IGES) in the seminar and a live robotic surgery in RS Bunda, Menteng , Jakarta.
With robotic surgery, the patient will only get little cuts around the body to be carried out the operation. The incision is used to insert a surgical tool connected directly via fiber fibreoptic to the surgeon console (simulator). The tools are controlled directly by doctors and assistants who perform actions through the media screen da vinci robot.
The screen on the robot showing the inside of the body undergoing surgery through a camera that is also incorporated into the body along with the surgical tools of machine simulator. To be able to perform robotic surgery, the doctor must first be trained and certified by robotic surgical expertise that is recognized internationally.
Robotic surgery can be applied to various types of surgery. Various types of surgical diseases such as myoma, prostate, to problems in the abdomen, chest, and head can be handled by this process. However, each patient with different body condition should first consult a doctor to decide whether he can perform robotic surgery.
In the history of medicine, robotic surgery is the development of minimally invasive tools such as laparoscopy. Surgical technology by using the camera as a monitoring organ in patients with the goal of minimizing the injury was first discovered in 1902 by an internist and surgeon German origin, George Kelling. Laparoscopy is successfully applied in humans was first in 1910 and began to spread among the media in 1966 in the United States. After that, since before the 2000s, robotic surgery began to slowly developed until now.
In Indonesia, there is a new robotic surgery in RS Bunda, Menteng, Central Jakarta. One set of machines da Vinci Surgical System has been used since 2012 ago. For three years, a total of 142 successful surgeries performed using the da Vinci robot.
The high price of each set of machine tools robotic surgery becomes the main cause of the difficulty of the hospital to provide a choice of operating these facilities. The price of a da vinci robotic machines are now about 200 billion. Singapore is the nearest state of Indonesia which can bring this machine.
"Of course this become an obstacle hospital in Indonesia to be able to compete with developed countries also neighboring countries which had already and more to have robotic surgery devices," said Wahyu.
Meanwhile, the CEO of RS Bunda Rizal Sini said da vinci robot procurement efforts undertaken to provide quality services of international level. Moreover, the existence of robotic surgery in Indonesia are also expected to ease the burden of Indonesian citizens who want to perform robotic surgery in terms of cost.
"Cost is bigger, but certainly comparable with the results obtained patient," he explained.
The cost to perform robotic surgery varies depending on the severity of the disease. However, generally the average cost incurred is approximately Rp100 million to Rp150 million. These costs are much cheaper when compared to the costs to be incurred when live abroad like Singapore, which reached Rp200 million-Rp300 million
