An expert multi-disciplinary team from the Hepatobiliary-Pancreatic and Liver Surgery Department at Hamad Medical Corporation (HMC) has successfully performed Qatar's first robotic pancreatic surgery on a middle-aged female patient diagnosed with a cystic lesion of the pancreas.
Talking about the procedure, Dr. Hani Atalah, head of the Robotic Surgery Department at HMC said that the procedure's success underlines HMC’s ongoing journey to provide the best quality care with the most advanced treatment modalities, and he added that significant advances have been made throughout Qatar in robotic surgery and treatment.
He further explained, using this robotic approach, surgeons can complete the procedure in less time than the laparoscopic method with additional benefits that the da Vinci Robot provides. The da Vinci robot offers more precise and ergonomic capabilities using magnified 3D HD vision and its articulated robotic arms controlled completely by the surgeon.
