The importance and uses of robots in medicine
The medical robot performs the surgery using very small tools attached to a robotic arm , the surgeons control the robotic arm with a computer , The surgeon sits at a computer station , He directs the movements of a robot and small surgical tools are attached to the robot’s arms .
The surgical robots allow the surgical operations to be carried out with greater precision than an unaided human surgeon , where it allows the surgeons greater access to areas under the operation using more precise and less invasive methods .
The surgeons make small cuts to insert the instruments into the body , then a thin tube with a camera attached to the end of it ( endoscope ) it allows the surgeons to view enlarged 3-D images of the body as the surgery is taking place .
The medical robot matches the doctor’s hand movements to perform the procedure using the tiny instruments .
The surgery is done without making large cuts , The surgical cuts are smaller than with traditional open surgery , it has less pain , less risk of infection , and less bleeding .
The surgical cuts are faster in recovery , it has smaller scars , and the patient will stay shorter time in the hospital , Using the medical robots will reduce the hospital stays , it will improve the patients’ prognoses and it will save costs .
The medical robots are one of the most useful applications of robotic technology , they can work with unmatched precision and they have the ability to work without fatigue .
Using the medical robots reduce the patient pain , they minimize the need for more medication and longer hospital stays , allowing the person to return home and start therapy sooner .
The medical robots are revolutionized the speed and efficiency of health care services in several parts of the world , The successful surgery patients have therefore reported smaller incisions , less blood , pain and trauma and a faster healing time than regular surgery .
