How Will Surgical Robots Impact Surgeries?

Healthcare Tech Outlook | Wednesday, December 11, 2019

The surgical robots are evolving, which allows physicians to perform complex procedures that are not possible with conventional techniques.

FREMONT, CA: Surgical robots assist doctors in many ways. Higher the cost of surgical robots lesser is their adoption in the medical field. As they help in procedures that require high precision, more hospitals have decided to invest in surgical robots. It can help surgeons perform minimally invasive operations. Robot-assisted operations in patients allow them to recover more quickly and effectively than traditional procedures. Here are some of the surgery robots that can change the surgical platform in the near future.

Monarch Platform

It is a surgical robotics platform that integrates flexible robotics, data science, micro-instrumentation, and other technologies for therapeutic and diagnostic bronchoscopic procedures. Monarch platforms will be the next era of medical intervention. It will enhance physicians' capabilities and the clinical outcomes for patients by accessing and treating diseases through the body's natural openings.

The CorPath System

People living in remote areas do not get access to urgent medical care, especially with a less skilled surgeon at the local hospital. However, leveraging other technologies like virtual reality with robotics can assist surgeons in such locations. Also, doctors can practice rough and complicated procedures in the virtual world before there's a patient on the operating table. The combination of VR with haptics helps the users get tactile feedback that brings more realism to these practice sessions.

 The Mako Rio

The Mako Rio technology can create a 3D model of the surgical procedure based on the patient's CT scan while offering real-time feedback as the doctors use specialty instruments. Physicians are looking ahead to use the surgical robot widely for hip replacements. Operations on the hips always require surgeons to place implants inside the patients. This will help them eventually regain mobility. In such events, the 3D modeling component will allow the surgeons to plan each stage of the surgery before it happens carefully.
