Robotic Gallbladder Surgery
Gallstones, which can range in size and number, are stones or crystalline masses that develop inside the gallbladder. Asymptomatic gallstones can potentially have serious consequences since they can slide down and obstruct the bile duct, just as symptomatic gallstones can cause excruciating abdominal pain, bloating, and discomfort. The only treatment for gallstones is the removal of the gallbladder. A well-known method for removing the gallbladder is laparoscopic cholecystectomy. The same surgery can be carried out with greater accuracy, precision, and safety using the next-generation robotic system, Versie’s by CMR Surgical, Cambridge, UK, while maintaining all the advantages of laparoscopic surgeries. The surgeon uses a 3D high-definition (HD) image on the console screen while operating during robotic surgery with a next-generation robotic system, Versie’s. The surgeon sits on an open console next to the patient while donning 3D glasses. The surgeon moves the robotic arms with attached surgical equipment using the hand controls. The robotic system developed by Versie is a cutting-edge robotic system powered by AI and machine learning. It is made for superior surgical performance. To accomplish a minimally invasive cholecystectomy, the patient’s abdomen is incised three to four times. The surgeon’s hand, wrist, and finger movements are translated into exact, real-time movements of surgical instruments inside the patient’s abdomen by the robotic system Versie. In laparoscopic surgery, a 3D HD vision offers significantly better depth awareness than a 2D view. Four movable bedside units that may be moved about at the operating table are part of this robotic system, giving port placement more flexibility. The open console enables the surgeon to continue verbal or nonverbal communication with the team while maintaining the total vision of the patient during surgery, which is essential in the OT environment.
