Robotic-Assisted surgery is a process that allows surgeons to perform complex surgical procedures with more precision, flexibility, and control than conventional techniques. The latest edition enables surgeons to perform minimally invasive surgery with an advanced set of instruments, 3D- High Definition (3D-HD) vision system, and with ten times magnification. The da Vinci Xi instruments have mechanical wrists that bend and rotate to mimic the movements of the human wrist- allowing the surgeon to make small, precise movements inside the body.
Dr. Hatem Mousa, Consultant General Surgeon at the American Hospital Dubai, said: “American Hospital Dubai was the first medical facility in Dubai to offer the fourth generation of da Vinci Xi surgical system to conduct robotic surgery services. Several complex procedures have been performed so far with success, and some of these include surgical removal of the gallbladder with tiny incisions; Hysterectomy, surgical removal of the uterus or other reproductive organs; Myomectomy, surgical removal of uterine fibroids; Sacrocolopopexy, surgery for uterine or prolapsed and Prostactomy involving surgical removal of the prostate and kidneys; Removal of colon, rectum, small intestine and stomach cancer; Repair of different Hernias.
