Comments on: da Vinci Robot Surgery System http://www.futurefeeder.com/2005/07/da-vinci-robot-surgery-system/ Wed, 28 Oct 2015 17:00:39 +0000 hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.5.12 By: Joseph http://www.futurefeeder.com/2005/07/da-vinci-robot-surgery-system/comment-page-1/#comment-980 Mon, 19 Jun 2006 01:08:28 +0000 http://futurefeeder.com/?p=411#comment-980 With almost 50% of all prostatectomy’s being done this year by the da Vinci robot it is hard to say that it is not effective. Docotrs who have done nothing but open surgery for years are now converting 100% of all of their cases to da Vinci surgery and this is not just in urology, but GYN, Bariatric Surgery, and CV surgery. This is a proven technology that allows the surgeons to be better than they already are (3d vision, fully articulating instruments, and intuitive movement) and allows patients to have the results of open surgery (water tight anastomosis, nerve sparing, etc.) with the minimally invasive benefits (less blood loss, reduced length of stay) of laparoscopy. I would not have any surgery these days without first asking if there is a robotic approach.

With his age and genetics a big factor we are looking at a radical prostatectomy. We live in Louisville, Kentucky and their is one da Vinci robotic arm. Surgeons have only been using it for one year here and I would like to know if there are more experienced surgeons in the US. I would like a better rate of success than 75%. I would appreciate any positive or negative comments and perhaps a surgeon’s name to contact.

Thank You, Joni

It allows the surgeon to virtually place their hands inside the patient without the need for large incisions. This minimizes the chances of the surgeon making a mistake that could harm the patient or even cause fatality. At the same time, it also helps patient to heal faster due to the smaller incisions. Another advantage is that surgeons can now scale, or ratio, their finger movement to that of the robotic arms. A movement of inches at the console can be scaled down to centimeters in the patient. This gives great control and precision to the surgery. The system also re-introduces precision to an elderly surgeon, who has all those years of experience but has lost some dexterity. The world first surgery using this system could be viewed here . via:1, 2 […]

Personally, I’d love to see the safety traps and underpinnings of a mechanism of this nature not to mention the hands and minds that interface with it.
