The Institute of Robotic Surgery at Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital, Jeddah

Robotic surgery, also known as robot-assisted surgery, is a minimally invasive surgery that utilizes advanced robotic technology to perform surgical procedures with unparalleled precision and control. The system consists of a surgical console, where the surgeon sits and operates the robot, and robotic arms, and controls the performance of the procedure.

During a robotic surgery procedure, small incisions are made in the body to allow the robotic arms to enter and perform the necessary surgical maneuvers. The surgeon then uses the surgical console to control the robotic arms and perform the surgery. The robotic system provides a three-dimensional view of the surgical site and allows for greater precision and control over the surgical instruments.

Robotic surgery has been shown to offer numerous benefits over traditional open surgery, including smaller incisions, reduced blood loss, faster recovery times, and reduced pain and scarring. It is often used for complex procedures that require a high level of precision and control, such as prostatectomy, hysterectomy, colorectal surgery, and gynecologic surgery.

BENEFITS OF ROBOTIC SURGERY

  • Enhanced patient outcomes
  • Smaller incisions
  • Reduced blood loss
  • Faster recovery times
  • Reduced pain and scarring

The DA VINCI XI Robot is a unique and advanced surgical system that offers numerous benefits for both doctors and patients. Here are some of its unique features and benefits:

THE UNIQUENESS OF DA VINCI XI SURGICAL ROBOT

  • It offers enhanced 3D high-definition vision, which provides surgeons with a better view of the surgical site.
  • The robotic arms have a more excellent range of motion than human hands, allowing for greater precision and control during surgery.
  • The robot's instruments are designed to mimic the movement of the human hand, allowing for more natural and intuitive movement during surgery.
  • The system's advanced software allows for real-time adjustments, which means that surgeons can make precise movements and adjustments during surgery without having to remove and reposition the instruments.

BENEFITS FOR DOCTORS

  • The DA VINCI XI Robot allows for greater precision and control, which can result in better surgical outcomes and fewer complications.
  • The system's enhanced visualization allows surgeons to see the surgical site more clearly, which can make the surgery safer and more effective.
  • The robot's ergonomic design reduces the physical strain on the surgeon, which can result in less fatigue and improved performance.

BENEFITS FOR PATIENTS

  • Robotic surgery with the DA VINCI XI Robot typically results in less trauma for the patient - smaller incisions, less scarring, and less pain than traditional open surgery.
  • The minimally-invasive approach of robotic surgery reduces the risk of infection, minimizes blood loss, and leads to faster recovery times.
  • Robotic surgery with the DA VINCI XI Robot can provide better outcomes for patients with complex medical conditions, allowing them to resume their normal activities more quickly.

TYPES OF SURGERIES THAT CAN BE DONE WITH DA VINCI XI ROBOT

The DA VINCI XI Robot can be used for a wide range of surgical procedures, including, but not limited to:

  • Prostatectomy: surgical removal of the prostate gland
  • Hysterectomy: surgical removal of the uterus
  • Colorectal surgery: surgery involving the colon and rectum
  • Gynecologic surgery: surgery involving the female reproductive system
  • Head and neck surgery: surgery involving the structures of the head and neck
  • Thoracic surgery: surgery involving the chest and lungs
  • Urologic surgery: surgery involving the urinary tract and male reproductive system
  • Cardiac surgery: surgery involving the heart and blood vessels

Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital in Jeddah successfully utilizes the Da Vinci robotic system for heart surgery

Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital in Jeddah has achieved a milestone by successfully conducting heart surgery using the state-of-the-artDa Vinci surgical robot. This marks the first time such advanced technology has been employed in the region's private healthcare sector.

Led by Dr. Uthman Al-Uthman, the surgical team carried out a successful Coronary Artery Bypass Grafting on the main artery of an 80-year-old patient—a highly complex procedure that demands utmost precision.

The Da Vinci robotic surgery system, known forits cutting-edge capabilities, features an arm equipped with a camera and other arms connected to surgical instruments. During the procedure, the surgeon controls these robotic arms while seated in front of a control screen linked toa computer near the operating table. This advanced control unit provides the surgeon with an enlarged, high-definition display of the surgical site usingthree-dimensional technology.

The success of this heart surgery at Dr. Soliman Fakeeh Hospital signifies a significant leap for private hospitals in the Middle East. By embracing this innovative technology, the hospital aims to mitigate risks and complications associated with conventional surgical procedures, aligning with its steadfast commitment to delivering the highest standards of healthcare and ensuring an exceptional patient experience.
