Delhi hospital hosts workshop on robotic-assisted surgery

New Delhi, April 12 (IANS) Max Hospitals hosted an international workshop on urological surgery which saw more than 70 leading surgeons from the country learn the nitty-gritty of robotic-assisted surgery.

The “International Live Operative Workshop on Robotic Assisted Urological Surgery” was held on April 10-11 in the hospital premises.

“Robotic surgery is one of the most advanced forms of surgery that is surfacing in the medical sector today. It will be beneficial for both patients and medical practitioners by enhancing skill sets, medical costs, aesthetic and cosmetic benefits and other such advantages,” said Dr Anant Kumar, director of urology, robotics and renal transplant, at Max Hospital-Saket, in a statement.

The hospital recently unveiled the state-of-the-art Da Vinci surgical system — a robotic surgical system developed by the US-based company Intuitive Surgical that allows surgeons to perform complex urology surgeries through tiny incisions.
