What is Robotics????
It is a branch of engineering (mechanical, electrical and computer science) that deals with construction, operation, design and application of robots.
What is Robotics Surgery????
It is a method to carryout surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm. The surgeon controls the robotic arm with a computer.
Why Robotic surgery is developed???…
Robotic surgery is being implemented into the hospitals around the world. We are seeing a change in medicine of the use of robotics for improving overall patient care. Have you ever wondered how does robotic surgery truly affect us? A few issues being discussed are the social, cultural, political, and including economic and environmental impact. After gaining full insight on the impact of this analysis you will have an understanding and appreciation to the positive advantages,…
Surgery is hectic. With a minimum of eight people in an operating room, not including the patient, and the necessary medical devices, the room can be a tight squeeze for many. Adding the obstacle of a surgical robot and the machinery needed to operate it only decreases the space for the surgical team. Robots in the operating room push human surgeons out. Machines operating on humans is a compelling idea, but is not justifiable because robotic surgery is dangerous, less efficient than human…
My preliminary exposure to robotic surgery began as a medical student during a clinical
clerkship in Urology at New York Presbyterian Hospital/ Columbia University under Dr. James McKiernan.
I was amazed on the positive impact of robotic surgery and became interested in exploring the potential that robotic surgery could have on the evolution of surgery.
My career eventually path shifted towards General Surgery, completing my residency in the Universidad de Chile and then Thoracic Surgery,…
Te chnology i s revolu tionizing the me dical field with the cre ation of robotic devic es and complex imagi ng. Mini mally invasive su rgery, or robot a ssisted surgery, is a co ncept surrounding many common proced ures that existed prio r to the i ntro duction of robots. The g oal of us ing robo ts in medic ine is to prov ide imp roved diagnost ic abili ties, a less invasive and more com fortable experie nce for the p atient, and the abi lity to do smal ler…
Because incisions were made smaller, this robot-dependent surgery was known to be less invasive than preceding surgical methods. Because their was less intrusion in the body, the risk of infection was reduced, hospital stays were shorter, and recuperation time was reduced.(Vertut and Coiffet 97)Since this implementation of Robots as an assistant in delicate operations, numerous procedures have been performed laparascopically as both technology and skills of surgeons have advanced. Despite the…
Is Robotic Surgery Safe?
Robotic surgery was introduced some twenty years ago and completely revolutionized the way we perform minimally invasive laparoscopic surgery. This was a huge improvement over the open surgery which had previously been done because it does not require large, painful, slow-healing incisions (Keith Kirkpatrick 1). However, these primitive robotic surgical systems were very challenging to use and there were very few applications which they could actually be used…
US had performed 400,000 different surgeries using robots and the rate of these surgeries is increasing every year by 25%. Additionally, transferring blood during normal surgeries has a rate about 40%, while robotic surgeries has a very small…
Robotic Surgeries Vs Traditional Surgeries: An Rhetorical Analysis
The topic of robotic surgeries compared to open surgeries and their costs has been a debate since 1983 when the first robotic-assisted surgery was introduced (Background). This debate is brought up and analyzed in Gabriel Barbash, M.D. and Sherry Glied Ph.D article entitled “New Technology and Health Care Costs –The Case of Robot-Assisted Surgery,” and was published in the highly renowned New England Journal of Medicine. This…
Surgery can be a terrifying idea to people. The thought of putting your life in the hands of somebody else can make anybody nervous. But what about putting your life in the mechanical hands of a robot? Robotic-assisted surgery is becoming more commonplace in medical treatment. As with any new technology, there are a lot of questions about the safety and usefulness of these robots, and how they compare to traditional surgical methods. The usage of robots in surgery has decreased the risk,…
