Robotic Surgery


Nowadays. The advance of medical technology leads the better medical care and better quality of life for the patients.
The da Vinci Surgical system is the name of robotic assisted surgery which have several advantage compare to the other surgical treatment as:

  • High definition 3D vision
  • Endowrist Instrument
  • Intuitive motion

Potential patient benefits include :

  • Shorter hospital stay
  • Significantly less pain
  • Less blood loss and transfusion
  • Less scarring quicker return to normal activities
  • Improved cancer control and a faster return to continence (Robotic assisted radical prostatectomy)
  • Preserve sexual function and a faster return to normal sex life (Robotic assisted radical prostatectomy)

Robotic surgery can be performed in several medical specialties as urology, gynecology, thyroid surgery.

Da Vinci Prostatectomy is potentially the most effective, least invasive surgical approach to prostate cancer treatment available today.

Compared to open or conventional laparoscopic approach, da Vinci Prostatectomy can further enable :

  • Precise suturing of the deep dorsal vein and urethrovesicle anastomosis.
  • Meticulous dissection of the prostate and surrounding structures.
  • Superior Visualization of tissue plane, target anatomy, and neurovascular bundle.

Results of these advantages lead the patient benefits in aspect of more success rate and less complications.

Faculty of Medicine, Chiang mai University set up the da Vinci Robotic Surgical system since November 2011. This operative system is fit the Excellent Center of Chiang mai University for the better care of northern patients.
