Robotic Surgery: Beneficial or Detrimental
Transcript of Robotic Surgery: Beneficial or Detrimental
By: Michelle Krameisen Sub-Questions When were robotic devices first used in surgery?
How do robotic devices work? Are they programmed?
How is robotic surgery helping humans?
Are there more benefits to robotic surgery than traditional? The first documented surgery occurred in 1985. It was non-laparoscopic neurosurgical biopsy. Device used: PUMA 560 When were robotic devices first used in surgery? The first laparoscopic procedure was a cholecystecectomy or a surgical removal of the gallbladder. Occurred in: 1987 How do Robotic Devices Work? Are they programmed? Da Vinci Surgical System 4 Sections:
3-D Vision System Tower How is robotic surgery helping humans? There are benefits for both the patient and the surgeon. Patient Surgeon Shorter Hospital Stays
Lower risk of Infections
Less blood lost
Quicker return to normal activities High level of surgical precision
Endoscope is programmed to prevent fogging - "When I use the robot, it feels like I have my hands in the body and my hands are truly doing all the work."- Dr. Li-Ming Su. Robotic surgery gives the surgeon the same amount of freedom and feels like traditionally surgery. Some think there are more benefits to robotic surgery and others think there are really none at all.
There are however, many success stories that show that robotic surgery is more beneficial. Beneficial or Detrimental There is research suggesting that there aren't benefits over traditional surgery.
Harvard has researched there is little evidence that robotic surgery helps the patient or surgeon.
Which is it??? Beneficial or Detrimental Robotic Surgery vs. Traditional Surgery Statistics Robotic Surgery Traditional Surgery Risk of injury to other organs- 2-3%
Surgical site infection rate- <10% Risk of injury to other organs- 7-8%
Surgical site infection rate- up to 30% Technology today is a growing and progressing rapidly
Robotic surgery is a new advancement that could end up being the only type of surgery available some day in the near future. Why discuss Robotic Surgery? What is the importance? Thank you!!! Are there more benefits to robotic surgery than traditional? Any questions?
