A very successful ROBOTIC UROLOGIC SURGERY project is being developed under the direction of Prof. Dr Fernando Abarzúa, medical instructor of the Hartford Hospital in Connecticut, USA.
The project started in 2012 and has already achieved a hundred urologic surgeries with great success and within international standards.
One of the big steps forward in minimally invasive surgery is robotic surgery or robot-assisted laparoscopic surgery.
The surgery is carried out by a surgeon through a robotic arm device that controls the camera and the instruments inserted inside the patient’s body.
The surgeon’s vision is magnified 10 times and the precision of the movements that simulate the human hand make it a safe and precise procedure.
Its application has been extended to several branches of surgery including urology, general surgery, gynaecology, cardiac surgery and otorhinolaryngology.
Our Robotic Surgeons are:
