Computer-assisted robotic cholecystectomy
Minimally invasive techniques have revolutionized operative surgery. In gastrointestinal surgery, the robotic system is applied to a wide range of procedures. Cholecystectomy, Nissen fundoplication and Heller myotomy are among the most frequently performed procedures. Most studies reported that robotic gastrointestinal surgery is feasible and safe, provides improved dexterity, better visualization, reduced fatigue and high levels of precision when compared to conventional laparoscopic surgery, but costs are high. This video shows a robotic-assisted cholecystectomy performed in teleconference with India. It is a very interesting video that makes us reflect how many could be the possible future applications of computer-assisted robotic surgery.
