Robot surgeon in medical center performs about seven thousand surgeries a year
Yakutia 24 TV channel: A robot surgeon helps doctors at the medical center of the Far Eastern Federal University.
The project of the FEFU medical center was created on the initiative of Russian President Vladimir Putin in 2012.
“It performs up to 40 surgeries daily. Here is ultra-modern equipment. This is Da Vinci – the only four-armed robot surgeon in the region,” says the neurosurgeon at the FEFU Medical Center.
According to the experts, the robot is subject to complex oncological, gynecological and urological cases. In online mode, it allows a doctor to penetrate into the most remote parts of the body with minimal tissue trauma. It is noted that about seven thousand operations are carried out annually in the FEFU medical center, of which five thousand are free. State quotas are available to residents of the regions of the Far East.
