Robotic surgery more interisting
TECHNOLOGY of surgery by robotic
hand or robotic surgery increasingly sought by the public.
More effective surgery and
leaving a very minimal surgical scar becomes an advantage of the surgical
This was revealed by the CEO of
Hospital (RS) Bunda Jakarta Ivan R Sini in a seminar entitled Gynaecology
Master Class: Robotic Surgery, Minimally Invasive Surgery Technology, at RS Bunda
Jakarta, Friday (5/5).
Increased interest in the
community, according to Ivan, seen from the number of surgery with robotic
surgery that has reached more than 200 times in RS Bunda Jakarta since 2012
"Although the cost is more
expensive than ordinary surgery, various advantages make robotic surgery more
attractive," said Ivan.
He added that currently the
technology is mostly done for patients with cases of endometriosis, cysts, and
other complaints in the abdominal area.
In such cases, highly accurate
treatment is required to minimize the potential for postoperative pain and
"If with ordinary
laparoscopy, limited vision and tool capability make the problem tissue not
entirely uplifted so that the potential for pain and the return of disease also
become larger," said Ivan.
Technically, continued Ivan,
robotic surgery will generally only make a surgical incision along the 2 cm.
The incision aims to include
surgical tools mounted on the robotic arms, such as scissors, clamps, and
"The devices are controlled
by doctors who sit in front of the control panel.The doctor can see the
condition in the patient's body clearly through a high-resolution monitor
screen," explained Ivan.
After surgery, patients are
usually able to move one day after surgery.
On the same occasion, Peter
Barton-Smith, Consultant Gynaecologial Surgeon Princess Grace Hospital, UK,
said in the implementation of the operation, the vision level and reach of the
doctor's hand are sometimes not optimal.
Unlike the case when using
robots. The smallest object on the body can be seen more clearly.
"This is very important
because it has a major effect on reducing complications or bleeding during
surgery," says Peter.
Even so, continued Peter, doctors
must first through the process of learning and training to master the operation
techniques using the robot with mature.
